Initial ballot for this week.
The Top Five remains unchanged:
#1 - Texas. Can Colt McCoy get any better? Or is this coming week the time at which he has a bad game?
#2 - Penn State- I thought that Ohio State would beat them. I watched most of the game. The Nitts' defense is better than I expected and their backup quarterback played well. National title game? Deal with it? Or maybe I should vote them down for nothing more than a lack of class.
#3 - Oklahoma. I know that KSU's defense is lost, but scoring over 50 in the first half is impressive regardless of who you're playing. Two backs rushed for over 100 apiece, even though Oklahoma didn't play their best ball.
#4 - Alabama - perhaps they should be higher. Probably should be, but I reserve the right to my individual bias. Can I do that? Vols fans had bags on their heads. Can't say I blame them.
#5 - Florida. What a butt-kicking they put on Kentucky. Sea of Blue called it a "horror show".
I watched quite a bit of football Saturday. Nebraska - Baylor, LSU - Georgia, Alabama - TN, Missouri - Colorado, Penn State - Ohio State, USC - Arizona, and the replay of Oklahoma - Kansas State. Didn't watch all the complete games, obviously - there wasn't much need to watch more than a few minutes of the Mizzou-CU game.
Questions - Utah, Boise State, TCU. Should Okie State stay above them?
Ball State does nothing for me. Is that unfair? Or do you care?
At #25, Maryland or South Florida?
