Our Thoughts

Brian – Texas has been slowly climbing the polls since the loss to Ohio State back in September and they’re now in a spot to pounce on any mistake by Ohio State, Michigan, or Louisville. If the Cardinals go down to Rutgers Thursday night on ESPN, it could mean Texas would get a chance to defend their title in January. I think the Horns, Florida, and Auburn are all better football teams that have played tougher schedules than Louisville, so anything resembling a slip up will have them vaulting ahead of even an undeafeated Big East champion. The Big East isn’t the terrible conference it was in years past, but it’s still a pretty darn mediocre one.

Matt – LSU had an impressive win at Tennessee, where they have won only twice now in I think their last 15 match-ups; so I have moved them back into the Top 10. I still don’t think Louisville is the 4th best team in the nation, but with the win against West Virginia I have to put them up there for now. If they don’t look good for the next couple of weeks, I may have to drop them below Florida.
