There has been some serious talk within a fan post and a front page article talking about how way off base the Orlando Sentinel's college football countdowns are. Look no further then to Pre-Snap Read which is run by Peter Meyerberg of the New York Times and their Quad Blog writer. Meyerberg has his own countdown which seems more accurate then the Sentinel's countdown.
Below is his countdown which has only New Mexico in the first 22 spots. Compare that to the Sentinel who has Wyoming, UNLV, New Mexico, and Colorado State in their bottom 20 spots.
