WOYSM College Top 25

by Larry Leek

Maryland Terrapins

There were some excellent games on Saturday and probably the best game was #10 Louisville at #4 Clemson as the Tigers proved they deserve to be in the top 5 by defeating the Cardinals 42-36. Also #3 Michigan had a tough time at home against #16 Wisconsin squeaking out the win 14-7 in a low scoring affair.


UNC Tar Heels

In some other games between ranked teams #6 Washington Pummeled #16 Stanford 44-6, #9 Tennessee knocked Georgia from the top 25 defeating the Bulldogs 34-31 while #13 N. Carolina beat #23 Florida St. 37-35  handing the Seminoles their 2nd loss of the season.

Bama Defeats Kentucky

Nothing changed as far as the top 4 teams are concerned and the top 2 teams handily defeated their undermatched opponents as #1 Alabama knocked off Kentucky 34-6 while #2 Ohio St. clocked Rutgers 58-0.

This Is Whats On My Sports Mind about this subject:

All of the top 4 teams continued their winning ways on Saturday and each one IF things continue to trend in this manner, three of the top four could find themselves in the playoffs, however down the road the Buckeyes and Wolverines will eventually get the chance to eliminate one another  (Nov. 26th) from the playoff picture IF both can remain undefeated. My Sports Mind favors Ohio St. in that one.


W. Virginia Mountaineers

Four teams fell from the WOYSM Top 25 this week (My Condolences) Iowa, Georgia, Navy and Toledo, as all four lost their games. The Midshipmen and Rockets stay were brief indeed only one week. WOYSM welcomes the fans of the four teams that took their place, #19 Boise St. #20 W. Virginia, #21 Maryland and returning to the poll #22 Mississippi.

Time for the WOYSM College Football Fan Highs and Lows of the week.


Clemson fans have to feel some relief as the Tigers won a HUGE game on Saturday when they beat the Cardinals. The Tigers had struggled against mediocre teams in their first four games, but My Sports Mind feels the win against Louisville solidified their place in the top 4.

W. Virginia and Maryland fans have to be excited that their teams are in the WOYSM Top 25, maybe the AP will show them some love as well.

Ohio St. fans have to be feeling pretty good about their team’s chance of making the playoffs, it’s still a LONG way to go but the Buckeyes schedule definitely favors them to make it.

Alabama fans OF COURSE expect their team to make the playoffs again this year, so does this Sports Mind and of course they WILL.

After starting the season 4-0-0 and making the WOYSM Top 25, Bronco fans have to feel good.


No one probably feels as deflated after being on such a High as Louisville fans. The Cardinals looked SO GOOD two weeks ago against Florida St. only to go to Death Valley, SC Saturday and have reality bite the team once again. It’s still possible though slim that the Cardinals can still make the playoffs at the end of the season since they did play the Tigers tough on the road, but they will need to win out to have a chance and that still might not work.


Florida St. Loses Again

Speaking of Florida St. Seminole fans have to be totally let down after their loss to the Tar Heels on Saturday, as reality has finally set in for real. Just as this  Sports Mind stated after they lost to Louisville two weeks agoNO PLAYOFFS….

And the same goes for those depressed Spartan fans who have now fell to 2-2-0 and one slot away from being completely OUT of the WOYSM To 25. What a shocker!!!!

It’s always tough after being excited to have your favorite team in the top 25 only to see them fall out of the ranks and even tougher when they are in the poll only one week. Navy and Toledo fans suffered such a fate after making the top 25 last week, Midshipmen and Rocket fans find their teams or should My Sports Mind say CAN’T find their teams in the poll this week. What a Low feeling that must be.


Texas A&M Rolls Over Gamecocks

Even though MY South Carolina Gamecocks made a decent showing against #11 Texas A&M before losing 24-13, Even though their defense has played decent this season, their offense is anemic and needs plenty of work. Last year after Spurrier retired from the head spot This Sports Mind thought they should have at least inquired about hiring say a John Gruden or maybe Bill Cowher about their vacant position and the more I think about it the more I think I may have been RIGHT 😉

So Whats On Your Sports Mind about this subject?
