Some points on my new poll...

As stated in my roundtable post, I was wrong on Virginia Tech so you see a big move for the Hokies in my Week 2 Poll. Florida State was more deserved to move up as well.

I mentioned before that I am high on TCU this year and upon further review I am even higher on the Horned Frogs. They will have one of the best defenses in the country, regardless of conference. And I look forward to their game @ Texas in Week 2.

Missouri is new to my poll as Blue Ribbon had several of their offensive players in their pre-season All-Big 12 team and predicted them to win the Big 12 North. They might be a little high, but I'm comfortable with this pick for now.

Teams I'm keeping a close eye on as I'll gladly replace Rutgers, Boise and Hawaii if necessary.
  • Oregon
  • Arizona
  • Texas A&M
  • Alabama
  • Miami
That is my story and I'm stickin to it.

Arizona couldn't find a winning season if it tried to bite their face. You're about to rank them!?

not about to rank them, just keeping an eye on them. Blue Ribbon has them as the 3rd best team in the Pac 10, I know nothing about them but I'm keeping an eye on them.

Then Blue Ribbon hasn't actually been watching any Pac-10 games. Arizona will be lucky to be bowl-eligible at the end of the season.
