To review, my Week One BlogPoll rules:
- No winning team moves down in the poll because there is no preseason in college football;
- No losers appear on the ballot because they haven't achieved anything;
- No team will move into the Top 25 by defeating an FCS team (new this year).
The ground rules set, we have:
2 Boise State
3 Ohio State
Four of my Top 5 won over the weekend, which kind of locked me in here. I would expect Boise State to move down next week and Virginia Tech to return to the ballot. TCU moves into the Top 5 with a good win. Arizona stays put by waxing Toledo.
I'll be impressed by Oregon a bit more when they play against a team not a midmajor, but that was still a pretty thorough annihilation of a decent Mountain West team. Florida will not remain in the Top 15 if they don't play better next week.
13 Georgia Tech
Michigan easily defeated Connecticut and I'm not ready to completely abandon Connecticut, so Michigan debuts high on the poll. Oklahoma will also not remain in the Top 15 if they don't play better next week -- almost losing to Utah State has pretty much confirmed my opinion that they were overrated to begin with. BYU won against what should still be an improved Washington.
18 Florida State
22 South Carolina
25 Oklahoma State
Ooh. South Carolina. Oklahoma State is about the only team that defeated another FBS team -- dismantled them, actually -- that I felt like ranking. So they're No. 25. Next week, I begin to integrate the resume poll and things should change dramatically.
