Fwiw, none of my top 5 teams played any FCS games, thus that really isn't the issue currently...it's just how the schedule breaks down thus far, Oregon State looks huge. It/they will certainly come down to earth soon, but that statement doesn't invalidate this week's rankings, it just puts things into perspective...this is where teams are at after 3, 4, and/or 5 games...good, bad, or otherwise, and I really stand behind my rankings and what they say. I'm going to look into other ways of ranking, may produce a side by side ranking (perhaps in secret) for comparison purposes, and look for potential "solutions" to the "FCS" problem. I guess I don't apologize for the way that I rank teams, but it may not be the most fan-friendly of formats.
Again, as always, my rankings aren't about the perceived best team in the nation, but what team has done the best against the toughest schedules. I agree that Oregon State is not the best team in the nation...Alabama is it I think.
