      1. USC. A great game yesterday, won with what was a questionable spot of the ball at the end. Vulnerability at the cornerback position has got to give some teams hope that the Trojans can be beat, but who else in the country is going to execute a ball control game plan as perfectly as Notre Dame did yesterday? In the end, the only teams with a chance to beat the Trojans are going to have to face Carroll on a field that will be virtually a home game for USC and after Pete Carroll has a month to prepare for them, which they can't overcome. Cal and UCLA may make the games with USC interesting, but they won't beat the Trojans.

      2. Texas. An impressive win yesterday over Colorado but.....Miami beat them in almost identical fashion. I don't see anybody left on their schedule with a chance to beat them.

      3. Virginia Tech. You could put 10-15 teams in a hat and draw out their names and come up with a logical order for numbers 3-10 in the poll. The Hokies get the nod because they've looked like a complete team and, if they win out, they will deserve this spot. Will they win out? I doubt it.

      4. Miami. The Canes were impressive for two quarters against Temple, and then Kyle Wright got hurt. The Owls shut out the Canes thereafter. However, when this team plays its game, it's as good as anybody other than the top two. If you liked Texas' win yesterday, you've got to put the Canes up high on the list.

      5. Notre Dame. That game yesterday showed me that they can play with and beat almost anybody this year.

      6. Georgia. I'm still not sold on the Dawgs, though they are one of the two best teams in the SEC. This year, that's not saying much.

      7. LSU. They slobberknockered Florida yesterday, but shot themselves in the foot with turnovers. A big test this weekend versus Auburn.

      8. Alabama. The most unimpressive showing of the day yesterday for a top ten team, and the only reason they make this list is because they are undefeated. Wyoming beat the snot out of Ole Miss at Ole Miss, yet the Rebels went toe-to-toe with Alabama and, had they been able to execute field goal attempts, the Rebels would have won. This Bama team has one impressive win this year, against a vastly overrated Florida team, and is quite capable of being beaten. They won't run the table.

      9. Penn State. They impressed me yesterday despite losing.

      10. Fla. State. The Noles drubbed UVA statistically, but gave up too many big plays defensively to the Wahoos to win. Who'da thunk defense would be the question mark at this stage of the season.

          1. USC - A great game almost lost by a homer time keeper. Replays don't show where the ball went out of bounds or should have been spotted. They *do* indicate the play ended with 10 seconds left on the clock and the referee waving the play dead.

          2. Texas - solid win over a quality opponent. Texas distanced themselves from the rest of the field.

          3. Georgia - all they do is win. They need to or risk a big drop in the rankings.

          4. Alabama - played a flat game. Looking like a team that plays to the level of their opponent.

          5. Virginia Tech - beat another nobody yesterday. Didn't play? Oh well, same thing.

          6. Miami - looks to be best one loss team in the country.

          7. LSU - won elimination game with Florida to move back into the hunt.

          8. Penn State - had their bubble burst. Only the close game keeps them in Top 10.

          9. Notre Dame - almost pulled the big upset. Biggest surprise was a outstanding defensive effort from the Irish.

          10. Fla State - a horrible loss. They were outplayed by an inferior opponent, suffering a complete loss of poise.

                1a) USC - They take everyone's best punch and still win.
                1b) Texas - Are beating teams convincingly. No one in the conference will hang with them.
                3) Va Tech - Until they lose, I'll keep them here.
                4) Alabama - Ugly win, but their resume is impressive. I remember Ole Miss nearly ending LSU's run a couple of years ago.
                5) Georgia - Ho hum.
                6) Miami - I still have yet to see them play since week 1.
                7) LSU - I can't wait until the LSU-Bama game.
                8) Notre Dame - Put the green jerseys away... forever.
                9) UCLA - Impressive comeback yesterday.
                10) Ohio State - Homer pick, but they still beat a solid ranked team.

                11) Florida State
                12) Penn State
                13) Texas Tech
                14) Boston College
                15) Oregon

                      careful there. looks can be deceiving, esp with the way UT has sometimes looked against opponents they're supposed to beat in the past

                        1. SC - until they lose, although I still think Virginia Tech has been more impressive this season.
                        2. Virginia Tech
                        3. Texas

                        9. Florida State
                        10. UCLA - reluctantly, because their defense is positively wretched.

                            1. USC
                            I'll keep them their until someone knocks them off. What they might be lacking in defense right now they seem to be making up for with moxy. They've taken some outstanding shots so far and have weathered them. That counts for a lot. You'd have a hard time convincing me that there's a better football payer in the country than Reggie Bush.

                            2. Texas
                            I'd be surprised if anyone is within 4 scores of them for the rest of the calender year. Vince Young is throwing the ball well, which is scary.

                            3. Virginia Tech.
                            If on November 5th they're still undefeated, I'll probably have them at 2. That defense is suffocating, and Baby Vick keeps getting better.

                            4. Georgia
                            They haven't done anything ultra impressive, but 6-0 in the SEC is 6-0 in the SEC, even in a down year.

                            5. Notre Dame
                            They belong in the elite group, even with 2 losses. If they played USC 10 times, they'd win 4-5. I can't wait to see what Charlie Weis will do once he gets top talent in there.

                            6. Alabama
                            They had the huge Florida win, but I'm not sure how much that means. They looked sluggish against Ole Miss. Probably just a hiccup, but Mike Shula is still the coach.

                            7. LSU
                            For all the talent, they should be playing a lot more consistent football. A lot of it starts with the QB.

                            8. FSU
                            Had a letdown against Virginia, and I still have a lot of doubts about Jeff Bowden, but the atheticism in the defense gives them a chance against anyone.

                            9. Miami
                            Kyle Wright is really starting to develop. By bowl season, they might be as good as anyone in the country.

                            10. PSU
                            They lost to a pissed off Michigan in the Big House on the final play of the game. It's kind of tough to penalize them too badly for that.
