Ballot Type: human

Overall Rationale:

Rank Team Reason
1 Alabama Crimson Tide If they finish undefeated they are #1. Just pretty obvious at this point. Even if they did lose a game, they'd still be in the SECCG, due to their win against A&M.
2 Clemson Tigers Again, They tied against ND in regulation without their #1 overall pick QB. I don't think you can really look at that game and go, yeah Clemson is clearly worse than ND and Ohio St because of it. And they were #1 in the country. They're gunna dominate their next 3 games and likely play ND in the ACCCG, even though ND shouldn't be allowed to...
3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Great timing. Maybe they would have beaten Clemson with Lawrence, but we don't know. A wins a win, so right now they're in the CFP, but they'll have a rematch with Clemson to definitively prove it. UNC could beat them though. 
4 Ohio State Buckeyes Probably analytically the best team when you're just looking at stats and shit. They won't jump an undefeated SEC/ACC team though. And the only reason they are ranked this high while Northwestern is ranked 17 is because of the talent they have. Next game against Indiana should be big.
5 Texas A&M Aggies I've had them ranked top 8 the last like 6 weeks. They just need to keep handling the business. 
6 Florida Gators Close loss to A&M, Great win against UGA, and relatively smooth sailing to the end of the season and a Chance at Bama in the SECCG. 
7 Wisconsin Badgers They're bout to have to prove themselves with Northwestern and Indiana...which is a weird thing to say. I expect Wisconsin will dominate their season. They beat Northwestern and they pretty much secure the B1G championship ticket.
8 Miami Hurricanes Just keep winning, just keep winning, just keep winning. Not getting pretty wins. But they also don't have a difficult schedule remaining. Good shot going 10-1. They need to drop a bag and get D'Eriq King to return next season.
9 Indiana Hoosiers Complete domination of MSU. Big game against tOSU next though, where they'll probably be humbled a bit. But Right now, how could you not rank them highly. Even if they're just 4-0 same as Northwestern....
10 Oklahoma State Cowboys Leading the B12 right now, but got OU next. I really won't be surprised with any team in the B12 losing to eachother though. 
11 Oregon Ducks Haven't looked good. But they're here kinda by default as the clear favorite in the P12. 
12 Georgia Bulldogs Got blown out both their biggest games. Good win against Auburn. Ultimately this would be a different team if they had Fields I think. 
13 Cincinnati Bearcats
14 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
15 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns
16 Iowa State Cyclones
17 Northwestern Wildcats
18 BYU Cougars Maybe I'm just a hater, but they have literally beat nobody good. Sure they win by a lot, and have a great QB. But why should they rank higher than Coastal Carolina or really any P5 top team? 
19 Marshall Thundering Herd
20 Oklahoma Sooners
21 USC Trojans
22 Texas Longhorns
23 Liberty Flames
24 Auburn Tigers
25 Tulsa Golden Hurricane
