Pre-Bowl Rankings, 1-124

So, it’s late, because bowl games have already begun, but I wanted to get out my ranking of all 124 teams in the FBS level of division 1 football. In doing so, I didn’t go strictly by records, or head to head. It was much more of on a feel basis, as if they all were to line up tomorrow on a neutral field and play each other. The key word being tomorrow. Injuries, and recent performance factor in quite heavily. September results weigh in much, much less than what a team did to close the year. As a result, there will be plenty of arguments based on the Team A beat Team B premise. Oh well. I also refuse to play the daisy chain game. So, in any event, here they are, all 124 teams, in the order of who I think is the best, to the worst, right now.
