I just wanted to say, and I'm sure many others feel like this as well, that I really appreciate you putting your time into compiling all these rankings and making the poll. And I just want to make sure that you realize, deeray, that your efforts really are appreciated, as these polls spark major conversation and really help keep this forum alive. Thanks a lot deeray ;-D ;-D ;-D

I just wanted to say, and I'm sure none of you will agree with me, that LSU is VASTLY overrated in everyone's poll except mine. ;-7

When Oklahoma played TCU (SOS: 99) earlier this season, did anyone notice? Did anyone hype the game? Did anyone think it would even be competitive? Was it competitive?

Now TCU is pretty high in most people's polls, I think they're 17 at the lowest. Are there that few good teams or are we forgetting that they were throttled by Oklahoma? 35-10. Just because they beat a BYU team (SOS:120) that had played nobody yet and was 100% unproven means they're a top 12 team as some people had them?

TCU's combined opponents' records to this point: 30-44

Say what you will about TCU, but any of the top 25 teams would give up 7 PPG when they get to play New Mexico, Stephen F Austin, Wyoming and San Diego St. That sounds like the patsies that Florida beats up every year to open the season. Oh, wait, that's the gauntlet that is TCU's schedule. If anybody could even tell me 2 of the 4 mascots of the above teams I'd be impressed...

Prepare to be impressed. San Diego St. is the Aztecs and new Mexico are the Lobos.....for good measure Wyoming is the Cowboys. :-D

I have no idea about Stephen F Austin....isn't he a wrestler? Stone Cold Steve Austin is their mascot right? :-B :-b

Thats where results end up coming into play. Replace TCU with Penn St and BYU with Ohio St, and you've roughly got the same argument. Ohio St has been less than impressive this year. With 2 losses, one pretty bad, and only 1 quality win, MInnesota, they're still ranked "high", and Penn St is certainly benefiting from OSU's high ranking.

Each team's best wins:
Ohio St has beaten Minnesota (7-1), Michigan St (7-2), Troy (5-2) and Wisconsin (4-4)
Penn St has beaten Ohio St (7-2), Oregon St (4-3), Wisconsin and Illinois (4-4)

TCU has beaten BYU (7-1), Stanford (4-4), Colorado St (4-4), and New Mexico (4-5)
BYU has beaten New Mexico, UNLV (3-5) , UCLA (3-5), and Wyoming (2-6)

I know records are not the one all end all but when you consider that Ohio St and Penn St's big wins are coming against BCS opponents who have better records than the non-BCS opponents that BYU and TCU are playing that has to mean something. BYU hasn't beaten a team over .500 all year. TCU's only victory over a .500+ team was over BYU.

Those are the best wins for each of the teams according to one of the computer polls. Which wins are more impressive in your opinion?

After the Top-9 in my rankings I could have pretty much tossed a dart at team names to see where I was going to rank them as nobody really sticks out. But in the interest of having a full poll I decided not to rank everyone else tied for 10th. Once you get past the elite it is awful hard to differentiate.
