It’s never easy to gauge how much you should read into any given game during the college football season. Should we take a Stanford victory over USC and then a Stanford loss to Washington to signify that the Trojans are, in fact, far worse than we thought? Or does that say more about Stanford? Or Washington?
That’s the kind of thing that makes ranking teams, especially this early in the season, tough.
For now, despite a defense that more resembles thin air than Swiss cheese, as far as I’m concerned West Virginia looks great, and that offense could probably hang with anybody in the country. So it’s the Mountaineers that round out my top four, with a little shuffling down the line.
Don’t agree? Criticize away!
