Ranking college football teams is a thankless job — I get that. Be that as it may, it's still a job, and one of the most important there is in college football. The rankings drive the narrative. They're what give us marquee matchups and the perception of quality wins. Without them, we have nothing to measure teams with or against.   For that reason, it's important to...
