No Question

After thrashing Ohio State last night, there should be no doubt USC deserves the week three top ranking. With such a clear-cut number one, however, it’s even harder to determine the rest of this week’s top 10. No team can boast a win over that kind of quality opponent, especially in such impressive fashion. Missouri has put up some impressive numbers so far, but the Tiger defense was torched in the team’s toughest game by an Illinois team that has looked decidedly mediocre. East Carolina needed a late comeback to beat Tulane this week.  Just tough to tell who’s good and who’s not at this point.

    Could you tell me where you culled that returning starter data you referenced in a post a couple of weeks back?

    Unfortunately, I had to gather the information from a few different sources. It was pretty time-consuming, because I had to enter everything by hand. I think you can get information back to about 2004 or so using Scouts Inc.’s season previews. Prior to that, SI.com still has its season previews archived online, so I used that for earlier years. Obviously, it would have been better to cull the data from one source, but that option just didn’t seem to be available. Sorry I can’t be of more help there. If you happen to be working on any similar projects and want my input, please feel free to drop me a line.
