What if sports has simulated play between all FBS Schools then used them to rank the teams.  Each school has played every other school 100 times and schools are ranked according to win percentage.  USF and teams on USF's schedule are highlighted.

This poll is obviously not realistic, how could they even dare to leave Pitt out of the top 25. After the last 3 years in that program, with the solid coaching staff. Come on.

And to give Cincy any credit at all, these people are clueless.

This is no less ridiculous than any other method of predicting preseason rankings.

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."
