I know that Ohio State is a pretty clear cut #1, but given that some of the top ranked teams had tough times with suposedly easy opponents, how do you think the teams should be rankings wise following OSU?

Of the top 10 outside of Ohio State, Michigan was the most impressive. Everybody else struggled, but they all came away with wins and that's what matters. West Virginia might vault USC for #3, but I highly doubt it.

I can't see anything changing too much in the Top 10. Outside of the top 10, VT falls and GT gains quite a few spots. TCU falls back to the 20s and possibly out.

EDIT: Texas played Sam Houston State, so I'm not considering that an actual game. 8-o

Outside of OSU, I dont really know what to think. Heres my top5:
OSU
USC
Auburn
Michigan
LSU

I feel fairly comfortable with this top5, but after that I dont see a squirt of piss difference between the rest. ND? UT? UO? OU? NU? VT? GT? UGA? FLA? I wont list em all, but none of these teams have proven to be consistent world beaters against what one would think to be weaker competition.

Whats gonna interest me over the next couple of years is the intense pressure for a playoff. The NCAA got what it wanted in terms of more parity throughtout the league. The increased parity though, makes it that much more assisine to take polling seriously as a way to determine the NC.

That would be my top 5 as well, except with Auburn ahead of USC . It's hard to discount WVU, but they haven't played anyone. If they beat Louisville handily they definitely deserve a spot.

USC just doesn't look like a top-5 team to me. And Georgia doesn't look like a top-20 team.

My top five would be-

OSU
Auburn
WVU
Michigan
FLA/LSU?

Fla has to be ahead of LSU. LSU has not beat anyone this year and lost the only time they played a quality opponent.

I don't see how you guys can have west virginia out, i mean i know they havent played anyone all that great, but its hard to drop them in the rankings given how good they have looked.

It's not hard to look GOOD against Eastern Washington.

They struggled against ECU. That's enough to keep them out until the game with UL. Don't get me wrong, as much as I hate WVU I can admit they're one of the top teams in the country but when they haven't beaten anyone of quality and then they struggle against a school like ECU they are going to be on the outside looking in when it comes to the top 5. They'll have their chance to move up, though.

Kind of surprised Auburn and USC stayed 2/3 in the polls, not really sure who I'd move up though. OSU did (deservingly) nab just about all the first place votes though (Auburn got 1 in each poll, OSU got all the rest).
