My Top 25 after Week 5

This is how I voted my Top 25 at CollegeRivals.org

 

  1. Oklahoma.  Big shock, I know, but they've earned it.  They've been beating teams mercilessly.
  2. Missouri.  I'm going homer here, but I had them #4 last week and I'm just not willing to let my previous #8 team jump us even if they did beat the crap out of a good team.
  3. Alabama.  If I weren't a Mizzou fan, I'd have Alabama #2 I'm sure.  Not saying I'm right or they're wrong, because Bama is rolling.  Get it?
  4. Texas.  This is a toss-up right now between LSU and Texas.  I had LSU 1 spot above Texas last week, but Texas' win was more impressive this week so I'm flopping them.
  5. LSU.  Have to be mildly concerned they didn't beat Mississippi State worse than they did, but a win is a win is a win.
  6. Penn State.  The last remaining team in the Big Ten.  As soon as they lose, we can stop hearing about that damn conference for awhile.
  7. Texas Tech.  I don't think I honestly believe these guys are the 7th best team in the nation, but everyone else I had ahead of them has lost so they're here by default.  They have an easy schedule in October so I expect them to stay up here for while, but in November they fact Texas, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.  You're not getting through that undefeated.
  8. Georgia.  I won't drop them too far because they lost to a team on a mission right now.  I think they're still better than many undefeated teams, and their loss is the least embarrassing of the major 1-loss teams so  here they sit.
  9. USC.  Speaking of embarrassing losses.  I'm leaving them here simply because of where I have the next team.
  10. Ohio State.  No way in good conscience can I put them above USC.
  11. South Florida.  No way do I believe they're the 11th best team in the nation, but again everyone else keeps losing.
  12. Florida.  Yet another pick I'm not sure I believe, but I don't know what to think of this team.  You absolutely KILL Tennessee on the road only to lose to Ole Miss at home.  I don't get it.
  13. BYU.  Will anyone ruin their dream season?  Washington wanted to, but the refs had other thoughts.  BYU is a very fun and dangerous team, but they'll find out much like Hawaii did that when you eventually have to play the big boys, you're not playing the same game.
  14. Fresno State.  I probably have them higher than anyone in the country, but I didn't drop them that far when they lost and everyone else in front of them keeps losing so they've moved back up.
  15. Utah.  See BYU.
  16. kansas.  Another pick where my homerism comes out.  I bet kansas probably deserves to be #13 in this poll, but I can easily justify putting a team with NO pass rush and NO running game down a bit.  ku has a couple of gimme's coming up against Iowa State and Colorado, but then they get OU and Tech in back to back weeks and reality sets in.
  17. Auburn.  Score some freaking points, will ya?!
  18. Wisconsin.  I knew you weren't that good, but I didn't know you were going to lose to Michigan.
  19. Vanderbilt.  GO 'DORES!  Absolutely LOVE it that these guys are doing well, and I hope they just BURY Auburn this week.
  20. Oregon.  Really the only other legit Pac-10 team.  They can't hang with USC I don't think, but this is a good team.
  21. Boise State.  I'd like to have them ahead of Oregon, considering they beat Oregon, but damnit BSU has only played 3 games so far.
  22. Oklahoma State.  I think they're long overdue to appear in the rankings.  I'm looking forward to the fireworks in Columbia when these guys come to town.
  23. Virginia Tech.  Welcome back, Hokies.  Your offense isn't good at all, and your defense is suspect, but you won in Lincoln and showed us just how possible it really is.  Even just for that, you get votes this week.
  24. Connecticut.  I will honestly say I know absolutely nothing about UConn and basically drew this name out of a hat.  I saw they had votes in the real polls and I needed another team, so here it is.
  25. Wake Forest.  Bad loss to Navy, but I had WF at #15 and I couldn't drop them more than 10 spots for that one especially when I was struggling to come up with even UConn.  Who else deserves this spot over Wake Forest?
