Our Thoughts

Brian – Despite the measley seven points the Longhorns were able to score against the Ohio State defense Saturday night, I’m still not convinced the Buckeyes’ D will win them a national title. For now at least they stay behind Auburn as both teams move up one to take over the top two spots.

A lot of shuffling throughout my poll as I think the second week of games revealed some things about several teams. Iowa and Florida State both barely survived scares and despite cominig out on top fall a little in my ranking. As stubborn as I am about them, LSU looked impressive this weekend against Pac 10 opponent Arizona and got a five spot bump this week up to number 8.

Matt – Texas’ loss was tough to take this weekend, but Ohio State clearly showed they are the #1 team in the nation right now. Texas didn’t play their best, but they are still better than most teams out there so I only dropped them down to #7.

As for the rest of my poll, I really didn’t move it around too much this week, mainly just dropping a couple teams down because of performance. After everyone thought Tennessee were world beaters (including myself) when they dominated Cal, they proved they are just a decent team who deserves to be in the top 20.

For the Big 12, I am adding newcomer Texas A&M at #23. They don’t have a real test until Week 5 against Texas Tech, so I will have these guys on notice. Rounding out the Big 12, I have Nebraska at #16, Oklahoma at #19, and Texas Tech at #22.
