Last week, four teams in the top 10 of the Uproxx Sports Power Rankings lost, which means there is all kinds of shakeup after Week 5 and heading into the sixth week of the season. We always have at least one (usually two) weeks like this where the Top 25 basically flips over on its head, a bunch of teams tumble, and still others drop out because they can’t quite hang on.

The exciting part of this, of course, is seeing other teams ranked super highly who wouldn’t normally be there. This makes some folks angry: “Wait, my team is undefeated, why did they drop?” “You don’t know anything you’re not even a real boy you’re just an internet man” “My wife left me” … and other folks just don’t even notice because they’re not reading anyway. Plus, there’s that third category of grumbling college football fans who think we shouldn’t rank teams at all until the season is over, I guess, and then we can just have that giant sassy computer from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory spit out the rankings.

These are my rankings and you can hate me if you want. I don’t hate you. I actually like you, and I want to talk to you about life and love and courage and happiness. Just hit me up whenever.
