    I am probably late to the party on this, but I had missed this until recently. When you go to the Championship Contenders section on ESPN, it lists out every team's grades, and it's based on where you are this year, and where you project. I'm assuming it's based on talent, but I suppose it's possible (though not likely, considering EA) that it takes schedule into account. With that in mind, here are the current championship contenders. I'll post in here often as it changes each week based on current ranking and recruits coming in (I think).

    Yep. This can be found on the console (along with a lot of cool screens).

    That's where I found it. Normally, I have to get in, recruit, play my game, and get out. I was looking at awards and found it. It is cool to track.

    You should check out your school's pitches from the recruiting menu. There's some cool shit in there. Championship contenders is there and other menus that are in ESPN or coaching menus (IE. toughest places to play, coach prestige, etc) as well as other stuff like strength of conference (you can see where all conferences rank as well as which 6 teams are the highest rated), playing style (you can see where your team ranks for stuff like rushing yds by a QB, rushing yards as a team, sacks by DEs, INTs by FSs, etc) and some other cool stuff.

    ACC continues to dominate the top in Week 6. The top two teams face this week, so it will change a bit.

    We are starting to see more movement in the 2016/17 grades as recruits are starting to commit now.

    I'd like to note that recruiting doesn't seem to update accurately. LSUTRUTH and I are battling on the #3 WR, and this week I negative recruited him on this category, but I had a solid A pitch and he had a B....despite the above A-/B+. Clearly I am a cheater.

    I have noticed that, too. Were you recruiting on the game or the wire? It definitely is behind on the wire.

    I had a B this week while recruiting on the console despite it showing up as a B- in the championship contenders screen.

    From what I've seen I think it's usually 1 week behind.

    In the game.
    I thought of that too, but the A/B pitches I got this week haven't been the actual pitches the past few weeks.

    I noticed I had an A- while recruiting this week for this pitch, so I'm not sure how quickly this gets updated.

    I also added in NC State since they would be the most likely team for a new user to grab.

    There was more movement in the future rankings. Virginia jumped from 5 to 2 in 2017. That puts 3 ACC teams in the top 4 for 2017 right now.

    I think a pretty big emphasis is put on this year. Just look at Maryland compared to TCU.

    Ya. Our championships will come in the future anyway with our new QB and DBs to stop BYU.

    There is a new future #1, and in a few years it has 3 ACC teams in the top 3.
