While it is still very early, and many will say College Poll mean nothing in September. However, I think we are starting to see some trends. First and foremost it looks like Alabama and Ohio State are separating themselves from the pack. Also given the Virginia Tech loss, and their bouncing out of this poll, it seems that Boise State’s hopes of a National Title have been dimmed. I still think they have a good chance if they can beat Oregon State. Before we go any further here is the poll:
- Ohio State
- Boise State
- South Carolina
- Penn State
- West Virginia
So the Coaches say good bye to Florida State, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and BYU. They welcome in Stanford, Michigan, Houston, Cal, and Missouri.
For Michigan fans we have been here before, last year this team was 4-0 before Big Ten play began. This year it looks like they can get to 5 or 6 wins before the meat of the Big Ten schedule begins. Michigan Coach Rich Rodriquez needs 7-10 wins to keep his job and it looks like QB Denard Robinson will get him to that level. We also have to count Robinson as the early Heisman Trophy leader.
I am a little surprised to see Miami at 17 with a 1-1 record. At the moment they are the highest ranked team with a loss. The only other top 25 team with a loss this week is Penn State who lost to Alabama last week.
