Week 7 College Football Power Rankings

Still Waiting For Rutgers To Score...

Week 7 College Football Power Rankings
SB Nation

I guess Houston is no longer the best team in college football anymore. I had them ranked number one every week this season and they just let me down like that . You had one job, Houston! One job! All you had to do is beat Navy and I wouldn't be here writing my power rankings this week without you all on it. With that being said, here is my top five. No, Houston is no longer in it. Damn it, Houston!

1. Ohio State

By default, I guess I have to put the Buckeyes in the one spot. They've been my consistent number two and they've yet to let me down, so I'll ride with them till' the wheels fall of. However, I am a bit nervous about them going to Wisconsin. They played great in their lone road game at Oklahoma, but I am not even sure how good Oklahoma is anymore. I'm nervous, but they can keep the number one spot until they show me otherwise. Don't do me like Houston did me this week, Coach Meyer.

2. Washington

I really had to talk myself out of putting them in the driver's seat. I'm not sure if they're the fastest, strongest or even most talented team, but they've got some magic going on over in Washington. First, they smacked Stanford on national television and this week, they went up to Eugene and hung 70 on the Ducks. Everybody was talking about how Michigan hung 70 on a Rutgers team that we're not even sure is a D-1 football program this year. Meanwhile, Washington hung 70 on a team that was ranked in the top 25 this year; that is insane. If they keep playing the way I know they can, they'll be number one soon enough.

3. Michigan

This week, Michigan didn't do anything to hurt their stock or help it. They played Rutgers and did what they were supposed to do. For the time being, I don't see anyone stopping them until they meet up with the Buckeyes come the end of November. With that being said, they're strength of schedule isn't doing them any favors, so if they want to make the playoff. Harbaugh's crew absolutely has to win out to make the final four this year.

4. Alabama

What did I tell you? That defense is going to get them killed one day. It happened against Ole Miss. They gave up 30 to a good Arkansas squad and now they have to play a great Tennessee offensive squad. The good thing is that they can outscore people with the help of Lane Kiffin, but I'm pretty sure the last thing Nick Saban wants to do is rely on Lane Kiffin to win or lose a football game.

5. Clemson

The Tigers are in a similar position to the Michigan Wolverines. They're head and shoulders above the majority of the teams they will play down the stretch, which is a gift and a curse. On one hand, you have a bunch of games you should win in or have a shot to win and on the other hand, you're expecting a bunch of 20 year old college kids to be consistent. That's just not something you can rely on either. I expect Clemson to get in the playoff given that I believe Alabama will stumble and the loser of the Michigan-Ohio State game will be eliminated.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
