All right, everybody.
Hello. Welcome The stream.
Ah, sorry about if you're watching my past stream.
When I ended it just a little bit.
Laghi. Hopefully, this one's a little bit better.
Um, basically, like I said, last dream, I'm gonna be ranking the top 15 most surprised teams of the college football season.
Um, in 2019 and I'm a predict how they do.
Ah, so you know, there are lost prize teams this year that exceed expectations big time, just like there are a lot of teams that did not exceed expectations and went lower.
I did my most disappointing teams yesterday.
My five most disappointing teams.
And today, basically, I'm just gonna d'oh ah, the most most you know, it could be.
It's like improved slash exceed expectations.
So if they exceed expectations big time, they're probably on this list. You'll find them.
It doesn't necessarily mean they need to go like 10 and two.
It just me or be really good.
It just means they need They were supposed to be pretty bad to say, and they were better, or it just means, you know, maybe they're in the rankings, but they were extremely dominant this season, and we have never seen them be that good.
Um, so anyway, I'm gonna start out right away, get to get to the point again.
It's supposed to say 2019.
I'm sorry about the title.
Accidentally do misprint there.
Um, but I will talk.
Some of these teams will talk about how I think they'll do in 2020.
Uh, but anyway, I'm gonna get into it right away.
Ah, waste no time.
I have Wisconsin.
I think Wisconsin is a pretty good football program.
You They usually do make the Big 10 championship game, But last year, they look great on their defense.
This year was fantastic.
And so is the running game.
Yeah, they did. They were great.
Jonathan Taylor was fantastic.
The best running back in the nation, at least a court he got the award for the best running back in the nation was in the Heisman.
Race was constant, very good.
They had a dominant defense besides from when they played Ohio State.
But still there are good nearly won the Rose Bowl.
I was just surprised that they finished.
Um, they were that good last season. They beat Michigan.
They destroyed Minnesota.
I got some big wins.
Nearly won the Rose Bowl on.
They finished 11th in the rankings.
I think that might have been a little bit too high for them.
But still, it was a great season for Wisconsin s Oh, yeah, overall.
Good season for Wisconsin.
Uh, next up, I have at 14 on North Carolina had Matt Brown a championship winning coach.
So they already, you know, they already had, like, kind of the, you know, the formula to be good, but I don't think most people expect them to hell.
Bull eligible is pasties, and they play pretty good.
They almost beat Clemson became their one point away.
They nearly wanted on a two point conversion.
Ah, so they did pretty good this season.
Um, and they beat some other decent teams.
They had some questionable losses, but still overall won their bowl game finished 76 great winning season and they're supposed to be in the preseason top 25.
And then there are legit contender um, the challenge Clemson next year.
They're supposed to What? I believe that the favorite to win the Atlantic Division for the A. C. C.
Um, that would be my pick, at least for the for the a C c T a C C Atlantic Division winner.
Ah, but yeah, I think you and sees a great team.
I think that will improve.
Maybe a 91 season.
Extract. Think that's a reasonable prediction.
Maybe a 10 1 season even.
Ah, next one up, 13.
I have Illinois, Illinois, you know, kind of like UNC not really known for their football.
Not only know for it much Illinois, but, um, they had a pretty decent season.
Finished six and six.
Beat Wisconsin came back down from 28 to 3 against Michigan State.
They lost their bull game, finished six and seven, but still got a couple of those big wins and they finally were bull eligible.
They're usually the laughing stock or one of the laughing stocks of the Big 10 West.
But they were right in the middle there, So it was a big one for Illinois.
Yeah, that again just know.
Definitely an improvement for that program number 12.
Indiana is a pretty is known for its basketball.
Obviously, it's a huge basketball area.
Uh, you know, you they've had that.
They've had championship winning basketball teams, but they've never been known for their football.
And they still haven't won a bowl game since, like the nineties, I think, or something like that be they, But they finished eight and five overall.
They took Penn State to limit, and they played pretty well this season.
I was pretty surprised because most people kind of like UNC in Illinois didn't.
Most people did not think that they would be bowl eligible, and they are.
They exceeded expectations this season, So definitely, um, Indiana had a great season.
I was impressed by them.
We'll see, You know, we'll see how they do this upcoming season.
I think they might take a little bit of a step back because they have to play Wisconsin, Penn State, Michigan, Ohio State.
All those teams don't think they had a play was constant last season.
Um, I might be wrong, but I think they might take a step back but still will see just a surprisingly good season.
Ah, this past season, Uh, number number 11 I of Virginia.
So Virginia won their division.
They ended up going the A C C championship game got smoked by Clemson, but still, it was a pretty impressive season for Virginia.
They fished 93 I think of the regular season overall.
Ah, they lost the orange.
Will the Florida? They put up a pretty good fight.
They only lost by eight.
Ah, great quarterback in Bryce Perkins.
I believe he's leaving, but he was a dual threat.
Q B Great running the football on great passing.
Ah, so he Yeah, they had a pretty good season overall, Virginia.
And they beat some teams that were okay in the A C C.
And they lost some games of the show.
But overall was pretty good season for Virginia.
They'll probably be in the middle of the pack of the SEC next season.
All of the A C C has been weak lately, so maybe they'll contend with North Carolina for the the A CC Atlantic title right now, Virginia, the 11th most surprising team 10 was sm you.
So if you don't remember, it was a long time ago s amuse awesome Southern Methodist University.
Ah, they got stricken with the death penalty.
And ever since, basically, the death penalty is I believe it's for one season.
You get your your school cannot play college football.
You can't play college football for one season.
They I think it can even be a couple of years if the NCWO chooses to.
But basically they're banned for one year for playing college football.
That really hurt their program.
They really hadn't recovered for a while.
But this season they're pretty good.
Ah, they want a lot of big games.
They lost their bowl game.
Ah, but they came close to beating Memphis, who was a great team, a top 22 in the nation.
And that was on the road.
And they had a great start this season.
They made it all the way up into the top 15.
At one point the season they didn't finish rink, but overall Ah, pretty good season for sm.
Ugh! Ah, yeah, I was just impressed by them.
They they still lost some big games.
But, you know, I, I think, definitely has stepped forward for the program.
Nine Air Force Air Force was a team in the Mountain West.
I don't think most people had had winning 10 games, but they ended up some.
They end up finishing 11 and to Ah, great season for Air Force.
Uh, tending to overall the regular season.
Beat Washington State coach by Mike Leach in their bowl game.
That was a big one, obviously.
Ah, for them but a great program.
I believe they finished inside the top 25.
I might be wrong. Let me see here.
I think they just made inside the top 25.
I'm not mistaken.
Yeah, all right. They finished.
They finished 22nd in the nation.
So it was a great season for Air Force.
11 and two overall.
That's a great record.
Definitely something to be proud of.
I don't believe they won against Boise State, but that's a pretty good program right there.
Ah, so overall, a great season for Air Force and hopefully they can keep it up.
Definitely a surprise.
He's nobody saw it coming.
Number not our number eight l s U.
So the reason I don't have Ellis you hire They went 15 and one of the most dominant.
Obviously the most dominant team, The nation.
One of the best teams, probably of all time.
I think they're in my top 10.
The reason I don't have them higher.
I understand that.
A very hard schedule.
Jo Bro played amazing.
I understand they're a great team, but some of the teams hide of them were knocked rate the year before and played fantastic this season.
L S u was ranked six in the preseason rankings.
It was not like they were a bad team before.
They were always in the top 25 most years in the past with Ed Order, and they're always a pretty good team.
They finished inside the top 10 last year.
They add three losses, but still they were pretty good.
They won the Fiesta Bowl against UCF, so it wasn't like there were some program that was just bad.
I understand 15 that's incredible.
But it wasn't like there are bad.
That's that's why I only have them at eight.
Obviously, they're still on this list because they won the national championship and most people did not pick him.
But they they start at six in the nation s o.
I definitely feel like even though they play great this season, I don't think necessarily.
They should be above some of these teams.
One of these teams above them have like two wins the season before.
It had eight wins that, um, this past season.
So there's a reason why they're higher.
Um, it's just like I said, A lot of this has to do with most improved and Ellis.
He was always a good football program, for the most part.
Obviously, they had been the national championships before they had one.
There's, and even though most people didn't pick him, it wouldn't be a complete shock if somebody told me preseason that Ellis he was gonna win the national championship.
So yeah, I, I think really there.
They definitely, you know, had a great season.
But I don't think it's necessarily worthy of being the most surprised team because they were always pretty good.
Ah, but anyway, that's just my take on number seven Tennessee.
They were always won the bought bolt.
For the last few years, at least, they've been a the bottom feeder off.
When the one of the bottom feeders of the SEC, they're always there with Vanderbilt and Arkansas always laughing stock on, and they did pretty good this season.
They finished eight and five overall.
They started out owing to that, and they got crushed by Florida.
They got crushed by Alabama, lost to Georgia, so the start of the season did not look good.
I think it was like their last six games or something like that.
Our last five games in the regular season be clean bowl eligible.
Um, yeah, they had a great season.
The reason I don't put them higher is because there are some people who had them being in the middle of the pack of the SEC and they were in the middle of the pack.
Realistic with the eight and five is a middle of PAC team and the SEC thought, and Vanderbilt's those were a couple of their wins.
Um, yeah, they they had some easy programs.
They got to play, especially at the end of season.
So that's why I don't have them higher, but still a great season, at least a great ending of a season for Tennessee.
I mean, they they lost the Georgia State and BYU at home, so great and the season for them.
I have Louisville.
This was the team I was talking about earlier, eh? I believe two wins in 2018.
I might be wrong, but to Mons in 2018 Some people are already predicting them for 2020 to be inside the preseason top Top 25.
They finished second in their division behind Clemson.
Overall, eight and five.
Ah, pretty good season for Louisville.
Definitely a pretty good season.
I believe they beat Mississippi State in there.
Ah, in their bowl game that I think was a close one.
But I believe they did beat Mississippi State.
So it was a great season for Louisville overall, especially after only having a couple of wins the season before.
Not even coming close to Balala.
Ah, they're probably the worst team in the A C.
That the year before you could argue Soto be like that.
Finished that? Highly.
I'm definitely a great season for Louisville.
They definitely deserve to be six here.
Oh, I was just shot.
They were that good.
Uh, number five Navy.
Uh, so navy you.
The past few years before this year, they had lost the Army in their big game.
Usually armed the last, I believe last year Army came close to being ranked, or they think they might have finished the top 25.
Um, Army was a disappointing team. Team Navy.
On the other hand, Ah was a very surprised, surprised team.
Most people did not think that would be that created if they if they thought they were gonna be Beulah.
Lige Bull is probably something like six and six or seven and five.
But this Navy team finished in the top 25 11 and two overall, 20th running to the nation, to be exact.
So it was a great season for Navy.
They played in the American Athletic.
Had a tough schedule, to be honest.
There they I believe they played Memphis.
Um, they the American athletic, produced, like four ranked teams.
They had Memphis, innit? Ah, they had Cincinnati in it.
Um, you know, they had UCF in it.
Um, And again, of course.
Navy s Oh, definitely surprise from Navy to be so great.
I didn't expect him to be that good.
Ah, but they finished for eligible, and they beat Kansas State a decent team in their bowl games overall.
Pretty good season, I would say.
Ah, for, um, for for Navy.
I think there are a pretty good team overall.
Good. Good defense.
Pretty good offense.
I liked what they were doing this year.
So definitely deserve another five spot for was Memphis.
Now, Memphis was averaged, I believe the year of their pretty average 2018.
Not many people had them making winning the ace easy, let alone coming close to making the A C C championship game.
Ah, this, um, pasties in, Uh, most people thought maybe something like Houston or something for something like that.
Not many people thought they they could beat teams like, you know, Cincinnati, let alone twice.
I mean, they beat him twice.
Um, I think that was a major shocker to some people.
I don't think people expected Memphis to be that good of a team.
They were really the best group of five team in the nation.
They won the American flag championship.
They lost the pen, stay in the ballgame, their ball game.
But they put up a great fight.
And that offense they didn't have a great defense, but their offense was fantastic.
This past season, they put, they put a ton of points up against Penn State, which most people most teams, um, have struggled.
Putting up that many points against Penn State because Penn State is a very has a defense.
That was a big surprise. They finished 12 and two overall.
American athletic champion and ranks 17th the nation and the season s overall.
A great season for Memphis Number three AP state Now the only thing people really remembered about AP state before this season was the fact that they are beat Michigan in 2007 in that crazy upset since then, they moved up from the F.
C s to the F B s.
Now they're always a great program in the F. C s.
They had one a couple F.
C s national championships.
They were a great program.
Ah, but the first, the first you know, a few years or so in the er
