In case you hadn't heard, just hours removed from arguably the biggest call of the young season, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio was admitted to the hospital with what turned out to be a heart attack. Sort of puts this whole football thing into perspective, doesn't it?
Our best wishes and thoughts with the former Ohio State defensive coordinator and his family during his recovery.
Another week in the books mean another series of random guesses as to where we think the top teams in the country rank us. Let us know just how wrong we are after the jump.
|11||Beat Georgia 31-24. Arkansas' offense found life again at just the right time but their biggest test to date looms with #1. Next up: #1 Alabama.||3|
|12||Beat Furman 38-19. We course correct for disrespecting South Carolina's previous efforts against Southern Miss and Georgia. Could very realistically be a player in the SEC East the way Florida and Georgia are playing. Next up: #15 Auburn.||7|
|13||Beat #17 Iowa 34-27. Won an ugly, nasty game with Iowa perhaps proving that the Pac-10 isn't just a two horse race. Next up: Cal.||10|
|14||Beat Arizona State 20-19. Survived by the hair of their chin after a botched point after.Next up: Austin Peay.||3|
|15||Beat Clemson 27-24 (OT). Cam Newton and the Fightin' Chizik's escaped what could've very easily been a Clemson victory in the overtime. Next up: at #12 South Carolina.||2|
|16||Bye. Somewhat anti-philosophical to ding someone for being idle, but the actual strength of the 'Canes should be better measured following next week's test in Pittsburgh and the ensuing week's in Death Valley. Next up: at Pitt.||1|
|17||Lost to #13 Arizona 27-34. Shot themselves in the foot repeatedly in the early going an were never able to recover. Next up: Ball State.||10|
|18||Beat New Mexico 56-14. My Cousin Vinny's favorite squad keep on in their winning ways. Next up: San Jose State.||1|
|19||Beat Minnesota 32-21. Struggled to break away from a lousy, lousy Minnesota team. Defenses continues to be big problem for the Trojans. Next up: Washington State.||3|
|20||Beat UMass 42-37. While UMass may be a relative power at the FCS level, Michigan showed they still have many flaws in a closer than it should've been clash with the Minutemen. Next up: Bowling Green.||-2|
|21||Beat Notre Dame 34-31 (OT). As mentioned above, won on an unbelievably ballsy (see: awesome) play called "Little Giants." Team will have to rally with Mark Dantonio out indefinitely. Next up: Northern Colorado.||--|
|22||Beat Maryland 31-17. Coach Bill Stewart's bunch bounced back nicely from an OT tickle fight with Marshall. Next up: at #23 LSU.||--|
|23||Beat Mississippi State 29-7. Held off on ranking these guys for as long as we could, but a decisive victory over the Bulldogs may set them up nicely for a good ol' boy war with WVU. Next up: #22 WVU.||--|
|24||Lost to #15 Auburn 24-27 (OT). The team was a dropped Kyle Parker pass from victory and then ultimately imploded after a penalty forced a rekick on what would've been the game tying field goal. Next up: Bye.||1|
|25||Beat Cal 52-31. Nevada looks perhaps the biggest post Oregon State threat to Boise's shot at immortality after housing Cal. Next up: at BYU.||--|
|Dropouts: Houston Cougars, Missouri Tigers, Air Force Falcons, California Golden Bears|
