Notes:

  • USC enough said.
  • Virginia Tech, LSU, and Texas no reason to drop.
  • Florida outplayed Tennessee, but it wasn't impressive.
  • Ohio State was suffering a post Vince Young hangover.
  • Florida State needs to improve, but winning at Boston College is big.
  • Georgia has looked average ever since beating Boise State.
  • Alabama looks real good, Florida comes to town Oct. 1.
  • Michigan State has a good shot to win the Big 10. State needs to step up the defense.
  • Tennessee remains at #11 on talent alone.
  • Notre Dame is still a top 12 team in the country. The defense got shredded, but the Irish might be the only team to have a chance at USC.
  • Miami won a close game at Clemson, but the Canes are still not top ten worthy.
  • Michigan rolled over E. Michigan, but must beat State on Oct. 1 to get back among the elite.
  • Arizona State hosts USC on what looks like a big college football day, Oct. 1. The Sun Devils offense is putting up ungawdly numbers.
  • Louisville whipped Oregon State. If Oregon State plays Arizona State tough this weekend, it will only make the Cards look better.
  • Purdue struggled against Arizona. The Boilermakers must shut down Minnesota this weekend to move up.
  • NC State is off the radar for the moment.
  • Texas A&M pasted SMU. The Aggies won't be challanged until Nov.
  • Clemson might lose four games this year, but still be a top 15 team.
  • California is being decimated by injuries. Illinois might be better than first thought. The UCLA games looms large in the coming weeks.
  • Boston College could not beat FSU at home. It might be awhile before the Eagles get near the top ten again.
  • Texas Tech gets no respect laying 80 on Sam Houston.
  • UCLA just might be a top ten.

Ach mein Gott. Between the breasts in the ad and the Bama ranking at No. 9, I'm weak in the knees.
