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?
#MWC Mountain— Adam McClintock (@cfb_professor) July 2, 2018
The division models as the 10th toughest division in FBS play w/ an average index rating of 68.00. #BoiseState has a chance to run the table this year and make noise nationally as well as in conference. They are the pick to win the division. #BleedBlue pic.twitter.com/9eZ4G7M2oP
