2009 Midseason Undefeated and Winless
We’re about at the mid-season point for college football. I always think it’s interesting to see which teams have gone undefeated so far and which teams have yet to win a game. By this time, most teams have had at least ONE tough opponent and at least ONE game where they had a chance to win. Here’s how the lists look this year:
- Boise State
- South Florida
- Ball State
- Eastern Michigan
- Florida Atlantic
- Miami (OH)
- New Mexico
- Western Kentucky
Really, I think the big surprises here are that there are no major surprises. Few people would have put Iowa on the undefeated list when predicting records at this point in the season, considering that they played Penn State, but once again, the boys at Happy Valley choked.
I guess South Florida on the list is a little surprising too. They haven’t had a totally easy season. Cincinnati has (sorry, I know ya’ll love ‘em, but I’m not sure they aren’t totally overrated). Next week, they play one another, so that will end for one team.
I’m hoping that Cincinnati proves they deserve to be ranked so high, but I don’t think South Florida will just roll over.
As for the winless list…well…let’s just say that Michigan is happy to not be on it.
