Orlando Sentinel countdown
The Orlando Sentinel does an annual ranking of all 129 BCS teams, highlighting one team a day.

The MAC already has two teams in the bottom 10, BSU and KSU.

I think NIU will come in the the low 60's/high 50's.

With Iowa, Utah, FSU, BYU, Toledo, WMU, CMU, Ohio, and Akron already on the schedule, it's kind of nice to see the BSU laugher mixed in there! 02-13-banana

Never underestimate an oppenent. I'm sure FSU thinks of us as a "laugher" too, like Ohio State and Nebraska did.

Will FSU win? Probably, but hopefully we'll make it a game and make them a little uncomfortable for awhile, like the Orange Bowl.

We have no chance against CMU no matter what place they are in and how many players they have lost. It's just the way it is, and we can't do a thing about it. It's an immutable Universal law.

Don't like the idea of a middle of September MAC West game. I could see a crossover game, but it's way too early for a Divisional opponent.

RE: Orlando Sentinel countdown
So with Akron checking in at #97.....

....5 of the "bottom" 32 teams are MAC.

But that special group also includes: Colorado, Kansas, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and of course the "Illness".
