    1. [​IMG] #1 Cal Golden Bears, 10-0 / 2-0 user / 3-0 top 25
          • Having navigated a tough non user schedule thus far with convincing wins and coming out on top in 2 user games, Cal looks poised to play for a national title in season 1
    2. [​IMG]#3 South Florida Bulls, 9-0 / 3-0 user / 0-0 top 25
          • With 3 user vs user wins the only thing holding this team back is a lack of games vs the top 25. Regardless, barring a late season meltdown, USF looks to play for all the marbles on the big stage.
    3. [​IMG]Army Black Knights, 8-2 / 2-1 user / 1-0 top 25
          • This may seem a bit high, but only 4 users have winning records against other users. Army edges out the fourth by virtue of a slightly better overall and top 25 record
    4. [​IMG]Minnesota Golden Golden Gophers, 7-3 / 2-1 user / 0-1 top 25
          • Last user with a winning record vs human opponents. The surprising Gophers look to contend for the B1G championship this season. The big question now is if they can play their way into a BCS bowl game.
    5. [​IMG]Louisiana Lafayette Ragin Cajuns, 7-2 / 1-2 user / 1-0 top 25
          • Spots 5 through 7 were tough to award here, but we gave the Cajuns the nod at #5 based on their big victory over a top 25 team
    6. [​IMG]UMass Minutemen, 6-4 / 2-2 user / 0-2 top 25
          • This team would be ranked higher if they had a top 25 win. Despite having the worst roster of any user, they have managed 2 wins against other users and are bowl eligible. Unrelated to on the field efforts, UMass and Five_Fifs have put out the best game recaps so far this season
    7. [​IMG]Northern Illinois, 7-3 / 1-3 user / 0-2 top 25
          • I had high hopes for this team after their win over Army, but after dropping 3 user games and going winless vs the top 25 they find themselves here in the bottom half of the rankings
    8. [​IMG]#13 Iowa State Cyclones, 6-3 / 0-2 user / 3-0 top 25
          • When you go winless vs users you can't climb too high on the power rankings. Lucky for ISU, they are also 3-0 vs the top 25 and are ranked in the national top 15, so a big time bowl berth is still within reach.
    9. [​IMG]Kentucky Wildcats, 5-5 / 0-2 user / 3-2 top 25
          • Clearly in the toughest conference with half of their games so far against the top 25, the Wildcats have struggled. They need one more win to get into a bowl game and could get it against Temple this week.
    10. [​IMG]Temple Owls, 6-3 / 0-1 user / 0-1 top 25
          • Just not a lot of results to go on for the Owls. This weeks game vs Kentucky could vault them up these rankings nicely or secure their spot near the bottom.
    11. [​IMG]#3 Virginia Cavaliers,10-0 / 0-0 users / 0-0 top 25
          • Lets be honest, if you have zero user games and zero wins over top 25 teams, it's gonna be hard to get respect in the power rankings. The game sees things differently of course, so the Cavs will likely get a BCS bowl bid and could sneak into the NC game.
    12. [​IMG]#25 SMU Mustangs, 9-1 / 0-0 users / 1-0 top 25
          • You join this late in the season and you are gonna be stuck down here. Having played Harmon43 multiple times I have no doubt he won't be here come season 2.

    Love it. Minnesota's gonna have to beat a better Michigan State team just to make the Big 10 title game, and then a probable rematch with Wisconsin, who beat UM 56-10 early this season. But this is only the beginning.

    3-2 vs top 25? 5-5 in the toughest conference in the nation? Lets see how you do against Temple before we relegate you to last.....

    only 3 teams below you, 2 of them are essentially nerfed because they have zero user games and in my book user losses is better that no user games at all (y)

    I bet Temple clocks me. Going to need my final game (and Tennessee to be ranked) to stumble into a bowl.

    I must say. I am pleasantly surprised. If only I didn't let that game against USF get away from me so early in the game. Or if I coulda stepped up against #5 Ohio.......Oh well.
