The Tyranny Of The Top 25: Remove The Rankings

Posted by James Crytzer on August-15-2009 Add Comments

The Tyranny of the college football world has officially been released upon all 120 Division 1-A football teams. The Preseason Top 25 Polls are out, its already time to decide if you're in, or you're out.

As bleak as this assessment may seem, the fact remains that these polls, are the basis of all rankings for the entire season, including our favorite pal, Ole' BCS.

Every week these numbers will be shuffled, teams may drop, and teams may rise, but rest assured that No. 1 and No. 2 will have started in somewhere in the top 25.

This fact leads me to my biggest gripe with college football, specifically directed at the Divison-1 level. Why do you automatically throw out nearly 100 teams before the season starts?
