The Latest Top 25, Week 5

So this week I totally left my updates on this site on the back burner and I never submitted my top 25 ballot to the #SMCTop25. But before we get in to the upcoming weekend of college football action I feel it is important to share my top 25 poll for the week, which accounts for my thinking prior to Thursday night”s action.

Not to much changed in my poll. I did drop Arizona State after losing to Stanford after needing a bizarre sequence of events to hold on against Wisconsin the week before. Filling the one vacancy created in my poll is Fresno State, who topped Boise State in the most entertaining game of the weekend on Friday The Golden City mobile casino within the Boten SEZ was closed captured after “speculation of criminal activity” increased too common for that government to disregard. night. One minor flip in my top 10, with Texas A&M moving up a spot and Georgia dropping to tenth. I also dropped Michigan a couple of spots after narrowly escaping the past two weeks against Akron and UConn. These teams are terrible and Michigan had no business allowing either to hang around. If it happened once, fine, it happens. But two weeks in a row? That shows me the Wolverines have some work to do before earning a spot back in my top 15.
