1 Oklahoma - With all apologies to the SEC, the Sooners play in the best conference and they're clearly the best team right now.
2 Alabama - Amazing how quickly Saban has built them back up.
3 LSU -Lose a quarterback in the offseason, it doesn't matter with that fantastic defense.
4 Missouri - Daniel is the Heisman frontrunner, Maclin is great in his own right.
5 Texas - I'm not a believer in Colt McCoy.
6 Penn State - Look who JoePA is doing with questionable character guys and a very good quarterback.
7 Texas Tech - Fun to watch, not a real contender, but fun to watch.
8 BYU - Can you say BCS buster?
9 USC - Still probably the best talent in the country.
10 South Florida - Nice quarterback, but does anyone really believe these guys would beat UF or UGA?
11 Georgia - So much for that "Blackout".
12 Florida - Softest secondary in all the land.
13 Auburn - Great defense, that's about it.
14 Ohio State - Great as long as they're not in a big game.
15 Utah - Is Alex Smith still there? Not a real contender.
16 Kansas - Love Todd Reesing, don't love the defense.
17 Boise State - Teams cower when they see the blue field.
18 Wisconsin - Second half meltdown against Michigan will cost them.
19 Vanderbilt - No Jay Cutler, just a very good team.
20 Virginia Tech - What happened to Beamer Ball?
21 Oklahoma State - A top 5 facility, they do everything right.
22 Fresno State - Bulldogs are more bark than bite.
23 Oregon - Nike's team is just a quarterback away.
24 Connecticut - Great progress building a program. Unfortunately their QB is hurt.
25 Wake Forest - You can't lose to any team that the Village People did a song about. Who's next, the YMCA?
