FOX Sports analyst Tim Brando has joined several other analysts this week in disrespecting Alabama by naming them his No. 2 team rather than his No. 1 team after one week of play. He took to Twitter to release his top 10 schools with most of the other spots occupied by teams everyone expects to see at those respective spots:
Putting Ohio State at the top would be alright if they hadn’t looked so bad for a half against what was supposed to be an inferior Indiana team. They ended up winning 49-21, but only because of a huge second-half surge. Alabama on the other hand absolutely crushed Florida State for a full 60 minutes in a 24-7 beatdown of a top-3 team. It wouldn’t be ridiculous to say that Alabama’s win was considerably than Ohio State’s against an unranked team.
Danny Kanell, ESPN’s Football Power Index and ESPN’s Joey Galloway all have someone else at the top of their rankings for various reasons, but the Crimson Tide will surely make them all look silly yet again throughout the season.
