The Athletic Final 130
Following Georgia’s win last night, The Athletic posted its Final 130 Ranking of this season. Here are some highlights:
Significant Power 5 Programs below Miami:
7 G5 teams in Top 25
17 G5 teams in Top 50
To me, EMU should be lower and WMU higher…Western had a couple of significant OOC wins this year.
Agree. Based on how we played against UNT vs the failures of Kent in the MACC and bowl game and EMU’s drubbing by Liberty, I would have assumed we’d move up to 4th.
CFN has Miami ranked 4th.
Yeah 4th or at least 5th for sure. Of course, realize we (inexplicably) lost to EMU but our bowl win and their blow out loss should have propelled us above them. Overall, Toledo had a better year than us but disappointed in their bowl game where they were favored.
I think there’s a pretty obvious explanation. Our record setting QB was unavailable.
Still should have beaten them w better play calling more suited to our backup QB.
The OU loss bothers me the most.
