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.

2019 CFB Upset Picks and Rankings: Week 12
Week nine of our CFB rankings and Upset Picks. Our criteria is very simple, to be the man you gotta beat the man, if a lower ranked team beats a higher ranked team, then the two teams automatically swap spots regardless of prior results.
The biggest matchup of the week was LSU versus Alabama and LSU did the unthinkable by leaving Alabama with a victory. That moves LSU to second in our rankings. Elsewhere, Texas moved into our top 5 with a victory over Kansas State. While undefeated Minnesota joins our top 25 for the first time all season.
We gave you three upset picks and Texas came through with their victory over Kansas State. The big upset pick for us this week is Indiana over Penn State. Penn State are coming off a loss to Minnesota where they got exposed and this offers another chance for a Big 10 team to take down Penn State. Navy over Notre Dame. Navy have the playing style to make this a close game and in a close game anything can happen. Auburn over Georgia. Auburn are still a very good team despite the two losses in recent weeks. Bo Nix is more experienced now than he was then and that bodes well for Auburn.
Tune in next week to see how the top 25 changes. For now, here are our top 25 teams.

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....
