We’re Going Polling: Week 10

November 4, 2012
  1. Kansas State
  2. Notre Dame
  3. Oregon
  4. Alabama – I moved K-State to No. 1 due to Notre Dame struggling against Pitt and K-State’s growing body of work – a complete beat down of Miami, holding Oklahoma to its lowest second fewest point output, a win at Iowa State, more beat downs at West Virginia and against Texas Tech and a win against an albeit overrated Oklahoma State. The Cats have dominated every team they’ve played this year, offensively and defensively. Notre Dame still has a better resume than Oregon or Alabama. Its fourth best win, against Michigan, is Alabama’s second best win, and the Irish dominated the Wolverines as much as the Tide did. Oregon’s been just as dominant as Alabama has; it’s just unfortunate that a national championship could be decided by preseason polls.
  5. Louisville – I’m higher on Louisville than most anyone, but staying undefeated, regardless of schedule strength, this late in the season is cause for praise.
  6. Ohio State
  7. Florida
  8. LSU – Had to keep Florida above LSU due to head-to-head result
  9. Oregon State
  10. Georgia – I don’t believe Georgia is that good, but I can’t bring myself to put any other team above it. Yes, the Dogs beat Florida, but they barely escaped from the Swamp with a win and were clobbered by South Carolina in their only other game against a good team.
  11. Stanford
  12. South Carolina – Another overrated SEC team. Yes, you beat Georgia but were dismantled in your other two games against good teams.
  13. Texas A&M – The Aggies just had to move to the SEC, didn’t they? They’ve actually been impressive in their wins and their losses.
  14. Oklahoma – Two good losses, and been pretty dominant in their wins against good competition.
  15. Texas – Longhorns really aren’t that good, but there’s really no one else that’s any better.
  16. Texas Tech
  17. TCU
  18. Louisiana Tech
  19. UCLA
  20. Florida State – Ranked sixth in the coaches’ poll despite only having one quality win.
  21. Clemson – Ranked eighth in the coaches’ poll even though it doesn’t have anywhere close to a good win.
  22. Northwestern
  23. Penn State
  24. West Virginia
  25. Toledo

    I wonder where K-State will be if Collin Klein has to miss any time due to his concussion.
