What do you think the top 5 should look like for the 2008-2009 season of college football? This is how I'd rank them:

1.) UF
2.) UU
3.) USC
4.) UT
5.) OU

Florida won the BCS Championship game and deserves the #1 ranking. Utah is the only team to go undefeated and beat a former #1 team in the process and should be #2. S. California finished strong and beat a solid Penn St. team. Texas barely beat a #10 ranked team in Ohio St. Finally, Okla. has 2 losses and doesn't belong in the top 4.

Feel free to list yours and explain why.

I kinda feel that's a pretty good list though. I mean Utah went undefeated and all and beat Bama, but the rest of their schedule wasn't nearly as hard as Florida's. And USC had a much better showing in their bowl game than Texas.

3) Texas
4) Utah
5) Oklahoma

I guess I am starting to sound like a Utah hater, at least to myself. Having watched these teams, I believe USC and Texas would both win a game over Utah. Going undefeated in a non-BCS conference is nice; but Utah is not undefeated with USC's or Texas's schedule.

Its not like USC's schedule is all that mighty though, yes their OOC games were tough enough but the PAC-10 wasn't so good this year.

Just curious how you figure that? I mean, everyone keeps saying the Pac-10 is a weak conference, but you don't know that because they don't play against out of conference teams except in pre-season.

I think the Bowl game record was indicative, 5-0 for the Pac-10. I think it also showed that the Big 12 was not as good as it was made out to be. Big 10 did terrible again.

My rankings.
Florida
Utah
USC
Texas
Oklahoma

My rankings:

1T) Florida
1T) Southern California
1T) Texas
1T) Utah

Division I-A college football remains a joke without a playoff IMO.

If you watched all the games closely this year, USC was definitely a better team than Florida.
