Week 10 College Football Rankings

Texas A&M is not the fourth best team in the country.

Week 10 College Football Rankings
Charleston Gazette

I told myself I wouldn't be back here, but here I am. What was the College Football Playoff Committee thinking when they put Kevin Sumlin and Texas A&M at the number four spot in the college football rankings? Who have they beaten? They have no wins over top 25 teams and they got absolutely destroyed by the best team they've played all year. I get that Alabama is good, but they lost by nineteen. I know that my rankings haven't been the best week in and week out, but you can't tell me that Texas A&M is a top four team. I won't allow it. Here are my power five rankings heading into week ten.

1. The Alabama Crimson Tide

Coming off of a bye week, The Alabama Crimson Tide look to be heavy favorites going into Baton Rouge to playe the LSU Tigers. The Tigers are quietly creeping back into New Year's Six contention and a win on Saturday could vault them into the top ten with a shot at an SEC title should Alabam stumble again. With that being said, Alabama is not about to lose this game. It's not happening. The Tigers could have Leonard Fournette run for 300 yards and I still would pick Nick Saban to figure out a way to get it done.

Last Week: Bye

This Week: LSU Tigers, 8:00 p.m. (CBS)

2. The Michigan Wolverines

Harbaugh and company were the only team not named Alabama to receive a vote for number one in any poll this week. Michigan held its own against Michigan State in a game that wasn't as close as the score may indicate. Still, the Wolverines have to be careful over the next few weeks and not fall victim to looking ahead to their showdown with the Buckeyes later this month. I may be dead wrong, but I think they will stumble this week against Maryland. I think they'll win in the end, but I do think this will be a one touchdown game as a result of looking ahead to November 26th.

Last Week: Win at Michigan State Spartans, 32-23

This Week: University of Maryland Terrapins, 3:30 p.m. (ESPN)

3. The Washington Huskies

The Huskies survived Utah and are cruising into the last quarter of the season with their heads held high. Washington State looks to be formidable, but I believe in the Huskies as they have the easiest road to the final four.

Last Week: Win at The Utah Utes, 31-24

This Week: California Golden Bears, 10:30 p.m. (ESPN)

4. The Clemson Tigers

The Tigers looked vulnerable for the third time this season, but for the third time this season, they pulled it out. Heading into their matchup with the Orangemen of Syracuse, they look to rest up and get ready for the ACC Championship in a few weeks.

Last Week: Win at Florida State, 37-34

This Week: Syracuse Orangemen, 3:30 p.m.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
