Here's the draft of my blogpoll ballot. Tell me what you think.
1. LSU Tigers
After very impressive weekends for LSU and Alabama, I think you have to place them above Oklahoma, which struggled against Missouri. Oklahoma St. notched an impressive win against TAMU and deserves to jump up a few spots. Wisconsin is holding steady in the Big 10. I think they're going to steamroll their conference rivals and have a very real chance to go undefeated.
9. Oregon Ducks
10. Florida Gators
Boise remains steady, but they're not going to get an opportunity to rise much in the polls unless all the teams ahead of them falter. Simply not enough meat on their schedule. Stanford had a bye. Nebraska feasted on a cupcake. Not sure if they should really be this high--need to see them play against some better competition. Oregon dominated and looks ready to make another run at the Pac-12, but the defense doesn't look good enough to compete for a national title. Florida is looking pretty solid and gets a chance to move up next week when it plays Alabama.
11. Clemson Tigers
12. Texas A&M Aggies
14. Baylor Bears
I know you guys are probably going to hate me for putting them this high, but I'm pretty impressed by Clemson right now. Their game against FSU wasn't as close as the score suggests; they're playing very well, particularly on offense. TAMU lost a tough one to Oklahoma St. but should be competitive at a high level this year. USC, as we all know, is a big question mark. Baylor has a great offense that should give them a chance in any game, although their defense will make them upset prone. Based on what I've seen so far, I don't think VA Tech is very good, but you have to put them somewhere.
18. Georgia Tech Yellowjackets
USF looks like the best pick in the Big East. Michigan--I'm probably going to hate myself later in the year for saying this--looks like they might be for real this year. GA Tech's offense appears to be back in gear. WVU didn't play as badly against LSU as the score indicates; I think they'll hold up well over the course of the year. ASU looks like the best pick for a mid-pack Pac-12 team.
22. Houston Cougars
23. TCU Horned Frogs
Illinois--solid mid-tier Big 10 team. Houston looks to be the best bet for a non-Boise BCS buster now that FIU has lost. TCU should have a chance to start rising in the rankings now. KSU picked up a nice road win against a perplexing Miami team. FSU gave it it's best shot against Clemson in Death Valley, but this doesn't appear to be the national-title contender we thought it was.
