BlogPoll Ballot

Ok, here’s what I have –


My top 10 reasoning –

Oklahoma – Wins over FSU and Texas suddenly look very good. 20th Toughest Schedule per NCAA.

Auburn – Offense laying waste to SEC opponents. 65 points scored on Arkansas. Defense needs some work. 31st Toughest Schedule.

Oregon – Much like Auburn (high flying O, struggling D) but against much weaker SOS (111th per NCAA). A tenuous 3rd to me.

Michigan State – 29th Toughest Schedule, undefeated, and deserving of more love then they are getting.

Missouri – 26th Toughest Schedule, 2nd best Scoring Defense. Mystified why they aren’t getting more respect in rankings.

LSU – 15th Toughest Schedule, but several miracle wins. Yet, they still are wins…

TCU – Nation’s top defense, but 61st Toughest Schedule.

Oklahoma State – 2nd best Scoring Offense, but 63rd Toughest Schedule.

Boise State – 73rd ranked Toughest Schedule, only getting easier from here.

Stanford – 16th Toughest Schedule with sole loss to the Oregon juggernaut.

As always, let me know what you think.

No you're NOT...as has been discussed ad nauseum, neither of these teams were "The Chosen Ones" in the pre-season, and therefore are deemed not "deserving" of more poll love.

And watch if either of them stumbles; they'll disappear out of the rankings faster than the beer at your taigate party.
