All You Can Do Is Laugh At These Rankings...

Our friends in the media and coaching ranks -- are once again showing their true colors...

Notre Dame's back to back wins over North Carolina and BYU have received little to no recognition from members of the media and head coaches everywhere.  In fact, both teams are ranked ahead of Notre Dame in this week's AP Poll and Coaches Poll.

OT: #1 Ferris State vs. #2 Grand Valley State


It's the "game of the year" in NCAA Division II Football and it takes place this Saturday in Big Rapids, MI at 1 PM ET.

I have to admit, I was hoping the folks at College GameDay might decide to break from tradition and take their show to a Division II campus...

Well, this Saturday the #1 ranked Ferris State Bulldogs -- the defending national champs and their 43 game regular season winning streak -- take on the #2 ranked Grand Valley State Lakers!

This game -- two schools less than an hour away from each other by car -- has turned into one of the top rivalries in the country.  Should be fun to watch!
