There are few issues as polarizing at the college football ranking system. I believe seriously that it may regularly bring grown men to tears. It's nothing like the easy bracketeering of the Final Four in college basketball. My boyfriend is a Kansas fan (their football team, FYI, hasn't done this well since 1899!!), and I often hear him screeching about it. (It's not "strength of schedule" for all of you KU unbelievers.) Well, this age-old sports radio debate is migrating to TOTN today... and we'd love to have you weigh in, but please — keep it civil. (And listen for college football tabula rasa Ashley Grashaw at the beginning...)
