Belmore Rankings: Week 5!

University of Alabama LogoThat’s right, they’re back!  The famous Belmore Rankings (who correctly called the BCS top 2 last year based on my own proprietary formula, without any subjective analysis of the teams) are here and calculated through the fifth week of the season.  Without further ado, here is my top 10:

  1. Alabama
  2. Vanderbilt
  3. Boise State
  4. Utah
  5. Texas
  6. Northwestern
  7. Oklahoma
  8. Nebraska
  9. Ball State
  10. Virginia Tech

Southeastern Conference LogoI’m not going to go into details, as it’s too early in the season (and even as a brother of a Vanderbilt alum, even I think that’s too high of a ranking), but there they are.  And for those keeping score at home, Washington currently has the second toughest schedule to date.  And last but not least, here are the ranking of conferences:

  1. SEC
  2. Big Ten
  3. Big 12
  4. ACC
  5. Big East
  6. Mountain West
  7. WAC
  8. Independent
  9. Pacific-10
  10. Mid-American
  11. Conference USA
  12. Sun Belt

That’s right, the four independent teams have collectively done better than the Pac-10.  If you want my opinion, that makes this bad UW season hurt that much more.
