Fightin' Gators Top 13

The second half is about to get underway and still a dozen or so teams can dream about playing in the BCS Title Game. Of course none of them can get there without the endorsement of this esteemed panel.

Time once again for the top 13 as chosen by the lawless firm of Vettel, Chmielenski, Redman and Cline.

1. Texas

2. Penn State

3. Alabama ---
HC: If the Terrence Cody knee injury is severe it could be devastating.

4. Oklahoma

5. USC

6. Florida -----
LV: The loss to Ole Miss is looking less and less damaging. Gators are good enough to run the table.

7. Georgia

8. Oklahoma St

9. Texas Tech

10. Ohio State -----
A CC: A big showdown win over Penn State this week could propel the Buckeyes back into title considerations despite their blowout loss to USC.

11. LSU --------
BR: This is not the ultra talented LSU team of the past few years, but if they can sneak past Alabama in a few weeks they could go 11-1.

12. Utah

13. Missouri

Dubious Achievement Award -----

BR: Wisconsin ---
The Badgers opened up the season destroying Marshall and Akron before beating a decent Fresno State team in a close game. Since then, they have lost four straight in the Big-10 (Conference that can't count). The losses include one to Michigan who only has beaten Wisconsin and Miami of Ohio this season.

HC: Washington State --- 116 yards of total offense. 69 points allowed. Just go ahead and forfeit the remaining games and use practices to prepare for next year.

LV: Wake Forest --- Middle Tennessee, Eastern Michigan (24 each) and Virginia (31) had no trouble scoring on Maryland and you guys can't get a point? It's beginning to look like FSU is the team to beat in the Almost Competitive Conference.
