The Dubsism College Football Play-Off Rankings – The “Time is Running Out” Edition

Frankly, I’m not really in the mood to write a few flowery, yet pointless introductory paragraphs.  Even more frankly, there really is precious little time for it.  Everybody’s down to the last regular season game, and only the conference championship games follow those.  That means teams looking to make a move in the play-off poll better be making them now. To keep with that theme,  here’s this week’s Official Dubsism College Football Play-Off Rankings.

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson ↑ 1
  3. Iowa ↑ 2
  4. Baylor ↑ 2
  5. Ohio State ↓ 3
  6. Oklahoma ↑ 2
  7. Michigan  State ↑ 2
  8. Oklahoma  State ↑ 5
  9. Florida ↑ 1
  10. North  Carolina ↑ 3
  11. Stanford  ↔
  12. Florida State
  13. Notre Dame ↑ 2
  14. TCU
  15. Navy ↑ 2
  16. Mississippi  State
  17. Houston ↑ 1
  18. Wisconsin ↑ 1
  19. Michigan  ↑ 1
  20. Oregon  ↑ 3
  21. Mississippi *NEW*
  22. Washington State ↑ 2
  23. Utah ↓ 3
  24. Arkansas ↓ 2
  25. LSU ↓ 18

1) Coming In This Week


It it just me, or does it seem like the bottom of this lists is getting awfully SEC heavy?  Granted, this is skewed by the meteoric plummeting of LSU, but you can’t deny that the Mississippi schools and Arkansas are enjoying clubbing each other into mediocrity.

2) Dropping Out This Week

BYU (25)

Realistically, the only reason the aforementioned LSU Tigers didn’t plunge all the way out of the poll is because as ghastly as they’ve become, we have to believe they could still beat BYU.

3) Teams Just Missing The Cut

  • Northwestern
  • BYU
  • UCLA
  • Temple
  • Memphis
  • USC
  • Texas A&M
  • Boise State
  • Toledo

If Ohio State didn’t have as much talent as they do, I would have dropped them further just for being a complete bunch of cry-baby losers.  But they are still going to beat Michigan, and Michigan State is going to prevail over Penn State, but if they don’t, the Buckeye land right back in the B1G Ten championship game, at which point anything remains possible.

Speaking of the B1G Ten, Iowa may be boring, but they are good.  Really good.

Once Florida loses to Florida State this week, there will only be one SEC team in the Top Ten, thus breaking the myth of “SEC Love” in this poll.  Oh, please note the cataclysmic, Russian airliner plummet of LSU.

The scenarios for keeping a Big 12 team out of the play-off are dwindling faster than Les Miles’ odds of being elected mayor of Baton Rouge.  The Grass Eater is onoly one of many guys who could be on the college version of our Coaches Death Watch…except JFI doesn’t do the college game.

Would a North Carolina win over Clemson get the Tar Heels a spot in the play-off? We’re going to find out in two weeks.

The Pac-12 team with the best shot to make the play-off is the 2005 USC Trojans.  Pat Haden is busy trying to rent the DeLorean from “Back to the Future” as we speak.

If you think time is slim now…just wait for next week when it gets skinnier than an Ethiopian swimsuit model with a tapeworm.

    I want to see Temple back in these Dubsism Rankings but I guess I’ll have to wait until they beat the Navy-Houston winner. (By the way UConn defeating Houston Saturday should have swept those Cougs back towards Temple and Memphis, no?) That’s ok…we are nothing if not patient in Philly. Ask Chip Kelly. (insert sarcasm sign here…we should do another podcast this weekend…) If Notre Dame beats Stanford we know they are going to the Final Four regardless of what else happens. Everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day…and New Year’s Eve!!!

    I thought some of the teams might slip up, particularly Clemson.

    Looks like I was wrong.

    First time for everything, I guess.
