Craig James: College Football Analyst?

Dear Mr. James,

You sir, should not be paid to analyze college football. That's plain and simple. To vote a 10-1 Boise State team as 24th in the nation shows a lack of common knowledge about the game you are a so called expert in. To rank the Broncos behind a team with 5 losses and two teams with 4 losses, to put it simply, is not right. I could understand an argument in which you place them between 10 and 15, but in no way are they the 24th ranked team in the nation. You, sir, always speak about "body of work". So, because Houston is undefeated and their best win is against a 6-6 UCLA team, you believe it is fair to rank them in the top ten. Boise State, on the other hand, with a loss against the 19th ranked team and a win at 12th ranked Georgia, barely registers a top 25 vote for you. Your own argument fails to hold any water.
