Tying up a loose end before heading to College Park…

… no, I didn’t forget about the D1scourse 30. Well, actually, I did. I filled it out Sunday, then never actually put it up.

SEE RELATED:


So here it is, a boring top 30 after a mostly boring weekend. Things should start clearing up on Saturday; the first of the BCS berths (Big Ten) will be locked up that day, and a second (Utah) can be all but clinched as well.

The adjusted records in this chart reflect all overtime games – wins or losses – as ties. And upon further review, I messed up on ranking Miami over a couple teams (North Carolina and Florida State) that beat the Hurricanes and also have three losses. Oops. Consider that something to potentially fix for next week.
