Thoughts, justifications, excuses, and etc.:
Alabama stays at #1, but LSU gets a three place drop after struggling with Auburn. I've been carrying on about how Bama and LSU are just playing at another level than everyone else, but LSU looked vulnerable and (worse) unprepared at Auburn, so I'm bumping Oregon, Florida State, and Georgia ahead of them. The sky isn't falling in Baton Rouge by any means, they're just too talented to really fall off from being one of the truly elite programs in the country, but that performance was disgusting.
Oregon is the new LSU, so watch them screw around for three and half quarters at Washington State before finally putting it away late. I have powers.
Florida State and Georgia are basically interchangeable at 3 and 4 right now, but Clemson is (at least right now) a better quality win than anything Georgia has on their schedule so they get the higher ranking.
Kansas State gets a big bump up for winning big on the road, and at this point you have to assume they'll become the trendy "dark horse" pick to win the Big 12.
South Carolina gets a jump into the top ten after destroying Missouri. I'm still skeptical about them based on the Vandy game and their seeming inability to not derp a game or two (or three) away down the stretch, but right now they look like a solid top ten team.
West Virginia and tOSU take a couple of hits 'cause the Buckeyes looked bad against UAB (Go Blazers!) and WVU hasn't really played anyone yet. Neither has Texas, honestly.
As far as everyone else, it's a mixed bag at this point. Oklahoma drops all the way to Mr. Irrelevant cause that's basically what they are at this point. Michigan drops out entirely cause there's no reason to have a two loss team ranked this early in the season. Arizona drops out cause oh man that was ugly. Mississippi State and Baylor sneak in for being undefeated and, in Baylor's case, killing the ULM bandwagon. It was a fun ride while it lasted.
So where am I wrong? Who's too high, who's too low, who wasn't included, etc.?
