Rankings Week continues with a visit to 2007. This really was one of the strangest, most ridiculous, awesome seasons in recent memory.

New 2007 S&P+ Rankings
Official 2007 F/+ Rankings
Expanded 2007 Off. S&P+ Rankings
Expanded 2007 Def. S&P+ Rankings

The F/+ Top 40 for 2007 is below. The entire list can be found at Outsiders. Some quick notes:

  • These rankings pretty quickly show you why so many teams lost: because no team was good in all three aspects of the game. No team in the Off. F/+ Top 10 also ranked in the top ten in Def. F/+, and vice versa. And in fact, it wasn't close; the only Top 10 offense in the Def. F/+ Top 40 was BYU, and the only Top 10 defense in the Off. F/+ Top 25 was West Virginia. An odd, odd season.
  • It makes sense in such an odd year, then, that a 6-7 team would actually slide into the Top 25. Karl Dorrell's final team ranked well ahead of any of Rick Neuheisel's teams, the best of which ranked 50th (2009).
  • It is also wonderfully odd that there were no undefeated teams and only two one-loss teams ... and one of those two didn't even make it into the Top 40 (No. 42 Hawaii). For that matter, none were in the Top 13. The 12-1 Kansas Jayhawks ranked behind four four-loss teams. Odd, odd, odd.
