Today's links topper comes courtesy of Joe in Brooklyn, NY: Dearest Ubben, Please remove Nebraska from the number 1 position in your latest power ranking. I've noticed a terrifying trend, the number 1 team loses. It's happened every week since week six. Nebraska, Missouri, and Oklahoma (twice) have all fallen victim to your "well-intentioned" rankings. I suggest that you move Nebraska to number 2 and have a seven way tie for first in the Big 12 between Oregon, Auburn, TCU, BSU, LSU, Stanford, and Wisconsin.
