Since Dwreck is leaving us and this is one of the most popular threads..... I figured I would resurrect it for us. Don't worry though, I'll do my best to continue to snub Baron just like my predecessor. 1. Jman #6 Penn State, 7-1 overall, 3-1 vs top 25, 2-0 in user vs user games: Bumping you to #1 based on strength of schedule. Four games against top 25 teams, the only loss in a sim to the nation's #1 ranked team. In addition, you have played good teams that are unranked. Signature Win: 40-35 over #25 Michigan at the Big House 2. Wyrmreaver #4 Hawaii, 8-0 overall, 2-0 vs top 25, 2-0 in user vs user games: The Warriors stay near the top after registering another win over a user. Hawaii could be in danger though as both of the top 25 wins are against teams sliding toward the back end of the rankings. Signature Win: 56-10 over #17 Iowa on the road 3. Hokie Effect #20 Central Florida, 7-2 overall, 3-0 vs top 25, 1-0 in user vs user games: Despite 2 losses, UCF stays near the top with 3 top 25 wins and a user win. If only the Offensive coordinator could coach the defense..... Signature Win: 31-10 over Maryland at home 4. papaloke #9Alabama Birmingham, 6-1 overall, 1-1 vs top 25, 1-1 in user vs user games: Losing to Penn State and having FIU drop out of the top 25 hurt UAB's stock in this poll, but the national polls seem to have plento of love for them regardless. Signature Win: 31-24 over FIU on the road 5. ChuckDzzNutz New Mexico, 6-2 overall, 0-2 vs top 25,2-1 in user vs user games: Los Lobos had a chance against Hawaii but turnovers killed them. We have them this low because of the lack of a top 25 win and because one of the "user" wins was vs the cpu. The conference championship game is still on the horizon and you'll be wearing red pants. Signature Win: 20-10 over Arizona in New Mexico 6. Selvy9 Tulsa, 5-2 overall, 0-2 vs top 25, 1-0 in user vs user games: Riding a nice user win over FIU, Tulsa debuts nicely at #6. Selvy is unbeaten, but these rankings take a teams full season into account, so the CPU losses to the CPU will be tough to overcome. A week 15 match-up with UAB should determine the conference title. Signature Win: 31-28 over FIU at home 7. IXI DECAY IXI #17 Maryland, 6-2 overall, 1-2 vs top 25,0-1 in user vs user games: A nice little win streak is happening for the Terps, but no user wins keep them down on this poll despite cracking the top 25 polls. Signature Win: 31-14 over Florida at home 8. cmilesg Wyoming, 5-3 overall, 0-1 vs top 25, 0-1 in user vs user games: You get the slightest edge over FIU because your losses all occured on AP. Prospects of making a bowl game are looking good despite the AP and the loss of the conferences best QB. Signature Win: 52-34 at West Virginia with a 51 OVR QB 9. Baron Florida International, 6-2 overall, 0-1 vs top 25, 0-2 in user vs user games: The loss to Tulsa drops FIU on this board. Now staring at no wins vs users or top 25 teams, the Panthers will get a shot at Penn State to close out the year and turn this thing around or finish a disappointing year. Will coach Baron be around next season? Signature Win: 51-17 over Rice on the road 10. GatorJes New Mexico State, 1-8 overall, 0-2 vs top 25, 0-2 in user vs user games: Just not a lot to work with for the NMSU Coach. Badly needs a roster upgrade to compete. The team is mostly young though, so if coack Kriske is around for another year he may be able to flip the script. Signature Win: 31-10 over SJSU on the road I'm going to try and use this same thread each week and just rearrange as necessary..... feel free to discuss as we go!
