Chaos Theory week 8

Well, week 7 certainly helped things here.  We went from 9 undefeated Power 5 teams down to 6 (Bye to Clemson, Washington, and Washington State).  Let's go ahead and add in the Group of 5 teams (which is only two from the American).

Syracuse over Miami
Kansas over TCU
Maryland over Wisconsin
Tennessee over Alabama
Michigan over Penn State
Tulane over South Florida
Navy over UCF

Georgia is on a bye.

Week 7 wrap up

And all of the Hokies say thank goodness for the bye week.  I mean, I take the day off to go to a concert and come back to find all sorts of upside down scores.

Chaos Theory: Week 7

I'm a little late getting around to Chaos Theory, and Clemson falls in the Carrier Dome.  Oops.

Last week, Oklahoma, Michigan, and Utah fell from the ranks of the unbeaten, and dropped us down to 9.

Going into Saturday, we're down to 8.

Who are we rooting for to provide chaos?

Syracuse over Clemson (DONE)
Georgia Tech over Miami
Kansas State over TCU
Purdue over Wisconsin
Arizona State over Washington
Cal over Washington State
Missouri over Georgia
Arkansas over Alabama

Penn State is on a bye.

Updated 2017 predictions

With the first month of the season in the books, it's time to update the preseason predictions.  While the conference races are wide open, we have at least seen how these teams are performing.  And, we can also account for early season changes.

Chaos Theory: Week 6

I couldn't bring myself to do Chaos Theory while VT was still undefeated.   At the end of five weeks, there are only 12 undefeated Power 5 teams.  Who are we rooting for to provide chaos?

Wake Forest over Clemson
Florida State over Miami
Iowa State over Oklahoma
WVU over TCU
Northwestern over Penn State
Michigan State over Michigan
Nebraska over Wisconsin
Cal over Washington
Oregon over Washington State
Stanford over Utah
Vanderbilt over Georgia
Texas A&M over Alabama

Week 5 wrap up

The wrap up is a bit late as I needed to recover from the full day GameDay experience.

Since some teams are already in a deep hole, we've already started the "Just start winning" category.

2017 Season: Post-September Thoughts

With the first month of college football being 5 weeks (plus a few Week 0 games), I've had a little extra time to shape some initial opinions on the season thus far.

Oh yeah, and we have some conference games to talk about...

Week 3 wrap up

Things are heating up, with more conference action happening, to allow for cross-conference rivals in November (and the FCS cupcake that comes with some of them).
