Week 3 of the Napkin Rankings and we are starting to see the wheat separated from the chaff, so to speak. The Napkin Rankings are a simple, unbiased way to tell how good a college football team is without having to rely on the inexact science of recruiting rankings, preseason rankings, and gut feelings. It rewards performance with points. The link to the points system is in the first Napkin Rankings Fan Post, if you care to check it out.

And the worst team in college football, taking over for Georgia, is Western Kentucky with a rating of -3. The Hilltoppers were blown out at home by the Indiana State Sycamores of the FCS. Seriously, Western Kentucky, go back to the FCS where you might be able to compete.
