Comparisons are a vital part of sports. We can't set our eyes on a new talent without immediately pointing to who that player reminds us of, like the Leonardo Di Caprio meme from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I do it too, so I wish I had an answer for why we can't escape the jaws of a player-comp,...
2018 Ric Flair College Football Rankings Week 8
Your favorite college football ranking system is back for the 2018-19 college football season. Our format remains the same, to be the man you gotta beat the man. Teams are ranked based on the previous week's record, nothing else.
We gave you three upsets last week and we nailed two of them. The big one was our pick of the (3-3) Purdue Boilermakers over undefeated Ohio State. Not only did Purdue upset the AP number two team in the country, they did so in a 29-point blowout extending their win streak to four games. Purdue and Ohio State swap places in our power rankings with Purdue now our fifth best team in the country. Temple also upset Cincinnati as we predicted but Mississippi State fell just short in a loss to LSU.
For week 9, Northwestern over Wisconsin. Going away in the BIG 10 is a daunting task and with Northwestern just breaking the .500 mark, they go into the matchup with plenty of confidence against the visiting Badgers. Syracuse over North Carolina State. NC State received a beat down from Clemson last weekend and going away to Syracuse will only make things worse, Syracuse almost pulled off an upset over Clemson and have yet to lose a game by more than a touchdown. Still not very big on Texas and after narrowly escaping two matchups in a row, they fall to Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Ok.
Keep an eye on our upset picks and tune in next week to see the week's top 25.

Since the beginning of the calendar year, we've all known that Watford and Norwich would get relegated back to the Championship. The focus has been on what team would be the third to get the drop, with Leeds taking pole position after letting Bielsa go. And their replacement, Jesse Marsch, was hired into a nearly impossible situation. Leed had just...
I did my worst fanbases earlier in the week, so it's only fair that I do my best fanbases. No bias or anything here; this is as objective and fair of a list as you'll find based on my soccer knowledge. in my humble opinion, these are the best fanbases to play for. And again, if you don't agree, don't forget to write your local congressman or woman....
