Let me know if you disagree with any of my rankings.
No huge surprises here. I still like OK State a bit more than Boise.
No surprises with Boise-Clemson. Oregon I'm not sure about. It will be interesting to see whether losing LaMichael James hurts them. Arkansas I'm liking a lot more after the convincing win over Auburn.
Michigan is looking very strong right now, but their schedule gets tougher soon. GT I'm a bit uncertain about, but their offense should give them a chance in any game. WVU is the class of the Big East and looked much more competitive against LSU than Florida did yesterday. Illinois continues to impress and has a manageable schedule down the stretch. K-State also continues to play well.
I said last week that I'd put the Gamecocks back in if they played well against Kentucky, and they did. Connor Shaw has to prove he can play well from week to week, but that about as auspicious a debut as one could imagine. Nebraska I watched last night and wasn't overly impressed by despite their comeback win, which is why I have them lower than some of the other one-loss teams. ASU seems pretty solid to me and has some good wins in the Pac-12. TAMU is better than their record suggests, probably the best two-loss team at this point. I think they'll rise over the course of the season. Baylor has a great offense but their defense will have to prove it can stop TAMU next week.
These picks are a bit of a crap shoot. I dropped Texas completely because it was clear yesterday that they don't belong on the same field as a real football team. MSU seems like a decent but flawed team. Same with VA Tech. Georgia I like to make a run at this point in the season. Some of you will probably hate me for ranking ND, but I think they're much improved this year and that they'll make a nice run for the rest of the season. I'm not sure if Auburn deserves to be ranked, but I don't know who else does. I thought about ranking Houston, but despite being undefeated and having a real chance to run the table based on the schedule, they simply don't seem like a top-25 team to me.
