The Pi-Rate Ratings

PiRate Ratings For College Football: September 8-10, 2011

PiRate Ratings—For Games of September 8-10, 2011

 

Robert Griffin III, Robert Griffin III, Robert Griffin III—there, now we are as trendy as any other football media this week.  The Junior quarterback may save the Bears this year, but he will not save the Big 12 Conference, and he may soon take a backseat to his own program when Baylor is left to find a location to align itself.

 

It looks like Dan Beebe’s conference is going to be the odd-league out.  Can the Big 12 survive in name only?

 

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, and Texas Tech appear to be headed west to the Pac-16, albeit a year later than most people thought.  When Texas A&M slaughtered SMU Sunday, it felt more like an SEC team beating up on a CUSA team than anything else.

 

Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Missouri will need to find a new conference.  Missouri makes a smart choice for the SEC, but the Big Ten and Big East are there as well.

 

As for the Big Ten, has anybody else noticed something about their new logo?  It goes something like this, “B1G.”  Glance at that logo, and you can almost see this, “B16.”  Might there be a valid reason for that similarity?

 

Week two presents a few really good games, until the BCS Bowl system is destroyed and replaced with playoffs, there will be no reason for the top programs to schedule intersectional games against each other.  Thus, because it is a no-win proposition, you won’t see many teams hurrying to add Boise State to their non-conference schedule.  You won’t see Oklahoma playing Arkansas, even though fans could easily drive to the opponent’s home stadium.  You won’t see a Big Ten-SEC Challenge where the 12 Big Ten teams face the 12 SEC teams like you see in basketball.  Instead, you get a couple of good games and several duds.

 

Here is the PiRate Ratings Top 25 For Week Two of the college football season, followed by all 120 FBS teams by conference.
