College Football Ranking: Colorado State Takes Throne From Bottom 25 After Loss To Washington State


In 2008, Washington and Washington state played what should have been the worst state rivalry game ever. The clash featured two teams with zero combined FBS wins, a mark so embarrassing that intoxicating spectators have come to call it the “Crapple Cup”. It’s a shame Colorado and Colorado State aren’t playing their semi-annual rivalry game this season, because The Centennial Catastrophe could be a battle of futility for the ages.

Things got off to a brutal start for Jay Norvell at Colorado State as the Rams lost their third straight game to open his tenure. Losing to Michigan and Washington State is fine, but falling to Middle Tennessee by multiple scores? Disgusting! This will give you first place. On the other hand, perhaps in an even deeper hole, Karl Dorrell’s Colorado is aimless and meaningless. The Buffaloes lost by 31 points to the Air Force, gave up a combined 87 to TCU and Minnesota, and now have nine straight Pac-12 games to go from third place.

“I feel good about our attitude when playing the game, we’re just not very good at actually playing it effectively,” Dorrell said after the loss to Minnesota, one of the saddest football quotes of all time.

The state of Colorado has the #127 and #129 offenses in college football. Point defenses aren’t much better: No. 125 and 127. Colorado doesn’t have a receiver with 10 receptions. The state of Colorado averages 1.0 yards per load. The best quarterback in the state – by a mile – plays for the Air Force, an optional offense. This is legendary stuff.

As you may have noticed, Tom is out this week, but don’t worry. As a sick fellow college football player, feel confident that I am more than up to the challenge. Let’s start.
