Deadly October 2016

October 1, 2016

 

Once again, Deadly October is upon us. It is the time of year in college football where the gold is separated from the pyrite.

 

Will the real college football teams please stand up?

 

Let us take a look at the AP top 10 going  to the first weekend of Deadly October.  This is excluding the total destruction 10th ranked Washington wreaked on 7th ranked Stanford on Friday, September 30th, the night before deadly October officially began. Of course this is if the AP top ten is actually that good. They could be as phony as four dollar bills.

Will this poll look like this in November? Don’t bet your life on it.

 

 

At first glance Houston and Ohio State appear to have the safest paths through Deadly October. However, as we have learned from past experiences, a yellow brick road through Deadly October can quickly turn into a mine field.

 

Wisconsin has a brutal October.  An emerging dark horse, Wisconsin has a Deadly October which could turn it into a broken down glue pot.

 

Injuries, coaching blunders, and dark horse teams eventually reveal themselves. Are there any dark horse opponents on this AP top ten schedule? Tennessee? Utah? Are there any not on this schedule? Time will tell the tale.

 

Will the coaching change at LSU get the Tigers on the right track?

 

Will San Diego State, ranked 19th going into Deadly October, be a dark horse in November?

 

There are many questions to be answered, and they usually are, in Deadly October.
