You can’t write about college football (and college football odds) without being hyper-aware of polls. 

There’s an AP Poll, and a coaches poll, and the CFP rankings, among many others, to say nothing of various sabermetric rankings like ESPN’s S&P+. 

Alas, I have not been invited to be a part of any of those various polls. So I decided to create my own. I watch more college football than 99% of voters anyway, so why shouldn’t I make my own rankings and share them with all of you?

Welcome to my in-season power rankings, which I’ll be updating at the beginning of every week once the season begins.
