College Rankings

By ALEC SERZYNSKI

College football rankings is a very controversial topic.  ESPN reporter Kirk Herbstreit is widely known for supporting the SEC, the southeastern conference which has teams like Alabama, Clemson, LSU, and many more.  Many teams do not get recognition from Herbstreit because he believes that strength of schedule is everything.  

Wisconsin, the only unbeaten team in the top ten for nationwide rankings has proven their capability that they are a world class team.  Wisconsin has beaten teams like Iowa, Michigan, and many more outstanding teams only sits at the number five spot due to their “schedule”.  Alabama was ranked number one when they have only played two good teams, Mississippi State and LSU.  Herbstreit claims that due to lack of scheduling that the Badgers are not a top four team and that they have to beat Ohio State, a team that lost to Iowa tremendously.  Overall the college rankings are biased.
