This will undoubtedly cause plenty of controversy and we recognize some teams  have played a few Joe Slappies while others played really tough competition, but an oft-repeated sentiment in football among coaches is you are your record. In that spirit, we have voted as above reflected. This will shift quite a lot after this next week’s slate of contests as many of the teams for whom we voted will, undoubtedly, lose and some other teams not in this week’s poll will have huge wins against highly regarded teams. We shall just have to see how this fleshes out from here.

Reporting for KPGFootball, this is Fletcher Long reminding all of you ballers out there that #WeGotUCovered and to PLAY THROUGH THE WHISTLE.
