    I like WVa at No. 2. Don't like Miami that low.

    It may not be right, but thanks for adding Alabama. ROLL TIDE.

    I went back and looked. You're right. Apologies. I still think they're a bit high, but that's just me.

    If TCU is ranked at all, they're overrated. The Frogs have beaten nobodies forever, but put them in the Big 12 and they lose four, maybe five games. They had to fight for their lives to beat freakin' Baylor. Texas Tech will beat them next week, then they'll run the table against the Armys, Air Forces, BYUs and Wyomings of the world (though Colorado State might beat them in Fort Collins), and they'll end up in the top 15 or top 10 again. If TCU is one of the 25 best teams in America, college football is in sad shape.

    no way that Boston College, Rutgers, TCU and Alabama are better than Nebraska.
    But you'll put them in next week when they beat USC, so i'm not worried.

    --Ohio State is where it should be, given last night's dominant performance
    --Notre Dame probably should be top five if it beats Michigan this week; No. 10 was too low
    --Louisville is probably a tad too low, but the Miami game will tell a lot about them
    --Rutgers got some love, I liked that

    Right about Rutgers and Notre Dame. I really like what I've seen so far this season from Rutgers. Very impressive running game, and the defense isn't too shabby.

    1. OSU - duh
    2. WVU - won't lose in the regular season, barring a miracle
    3. ND - only team with 2 wins over ranked teams
    4. USC
    5. Auburn
    6. LSU
    7. Michigan
    8. Florida
    9. Texas
    10. FSU
    11. Tennessee
    12. VT

    I looked it up today ... Alabama is 12-2 since start of last season, and FIVE of those are 3-point wins.

    I'm still impressed with what WVU did at the end of last season, so vote 'em high as you want. But Whitlock is right that OSU has the season's most impressive win to this point.

    Am I the only one not buying Texas and, thus, not buying Ohio State's win as that big a deal? Don't get me wrong ... nice win, but the Horns weren't much before Vince Young became one of the greatest players the game has seen in the past 10 years. To me, now that he's gone, they certainly still have the talent but have to show they aren't a bunch of gagging dogs.

    Still, Ohio State has to be No. 1 ... then some combination of Auburn, LSU, USC and WVU. So I guess I'm saying, I like the list, but probably drop WVU down a couple pegs.

    OK, I agree with the WVA philosophy... But was questioning if there was another reason besides OSU's win to bump WVA
    But Bama is not a top 25 team. Not the way it played yesterday

    No Cal at all?

    I know they were supposed to beat Tennesee...and didn't

    But they roughed up Minnesota pretty good...

    I don't see them moving up, but should they fall out?
