    He's right outside the top 25. Possibly because he played really well against shit teams + Oregon State. Got the crap beat out of him by everyone else that was decent.

    Mariota is severely underrated.

    Logan Thomas :ROFLMAO:. The name factor is definitely very strong in how they determine ratings. I do like seeing Lynch up there though.

    I don't watch a lot of Oklahoma football , but can Blake Bell even pass the ball? all I've ever seen is short yardage runs.

    The head ball coach likes both guys and has been chained to the read option with Lattimore so he's supported Shaw, but don't doubt for a minute that he isn't ready to let Thompson take over and run an offense similar to his old Florida days. He's also probably itching to get Connor Mitch in eventually.

    Numbers don't lie, but they also aren't everything. Comparing him to anyone else doesn't provide a lot of justification. Oregon numbers are always going to be Oregon numbers.

    Any more stuff like this coming out? Maybe top 25 HBs, WRs, or even incoming freshmen?

    Also have to take the "Heisman Bump" into consideration as well. Don't think for a second that Manziel wouldn't be right next to Mariota had he not been a Heisman finalist, let alone won it.

    I'm hoping some of the guys in T3 want South Carolina. I'd like to see someone successfully use a 2 QB system.

    I'd like to see top 25 HBs and maybe just top 10 incoming freshmen if that would be easier. WRs I could care less

    I think if we get two more articles top 25 offensive skill (WR/HB) and top 25 defensive would be a nice combo

    Really glad they gave Bryn Renner some love - he's otherwise underrated imo.

    I love seeing Jordan Lynch getting some love, or anyone that isn't from a BCS conference. As far as Blake Bell, might be that his running ability boosts his OVR, which as many GameChangers here will tell you, can be deceiving.

    Drifterbub is it possible to edit class this year? Can't recall if you could in 13.

    Yes he can. Big arm. Question is savvy in the pocket. But the porn stache Jones didn't have any of that either.
