SBNation takeover.

Happy 4th of July to each and every one of our readers. Today brings a bit of linkers on the lighter side of things. Still a few weeks away from actual football, SBNation is presenting some peak off-season content. Enjoy.

The best fictional college football teams.

If you love football movies, this article is for you! TMU in Friday Night Lights gets a shoutout here. So do the SCLSU Mudogs (last game of the season, can’t hold anything back now). Plus Forrest Gump and the Fresh Prince of Bell-Air. Oh and Rudy.

The ideal game/team in every time-slot.

Have you ever thought, what’s the best team or matchup to watch at 11:30am? 3pm? 9:30pm? Me either. But, SBNation answers the question for us. Boise State gets a shoutout here for the super late but not midnight slot. Hawaii of course is on the full graveyard shift. For a fun article, it’s pretty accurate.

Meta-ranking: Ranking the rankings.

If you like rankings, this post is for you. Although the CFP Rankings are important, I don’t know if I’ve ever really watched more than 10 minutes of it. Of course I’m partial to recruiting rankings. #5 is funny. #6 is fairly worthless, but we obsess over them anyway. #17 is sooo true. I forgot how weird #18 was. Again, it’s summer reading but pretty enjoyable.

The top 30 players in the MWC.

They also include their pre-season all-MWC team. Fairly based, but heavy doses of Boise State, Fresno State, San Diego State, and Wyoming. Same with their top 30 players list. A classic look for the guys and your team and get made if not enough are there type of post.

MWC Mountain a power division?

On the horizon:

  • Later today: A behind the scenes look at Nevada’s recruiting success and thoughts with quotes from their recruiting coordinator Alex Collins
  • Coming Friday: The MWC Roundtable looks at the Aztecs and their chances of getting another huge season from a RB.
  • Coming Friday: This week in Friday Night Lights, we take a look at Oak Ridge HS.
