J3C College Football Top 25 (after week three)

Resiliency, lackluster performances, a few shocks, and some “upsets” that may not have been.

Alabama gets some odd style points for the manner of their comeback win but in the back of my mind I wonder how strong a positive that is since it came against the first ranked team in history  to blow three touchdown leads TWICE in the same season … Stanford didn’t disappoint in their handling of Southern Cal, nor did Ohio State in their win over Oklahoma … This week found Michigan and Houston both taking their turn at starting slow and finishing fast … Similar to Alabama’s predicament is actually Louisville.  QB Lamar Jackson is certainly impressive but what to make of an FSU team who’s big win thus far is over a team most notable so far this season for their 2nd half collapses? … Wisconsin goes on the list of teams that narrowly avoided a disastrous upset loss, while Iowa is an upset victim although frankly I’m not sure that North Dakota State beating them is really THAT big of an upset … Tennessee overcame injuries that depleted their defense and an OL that remains highly suspect, while Georgia Tech did what even a decent team should do and steamrolled Vandy …
