BlogPoll – Week 4

Kyle Porter —  September 19, 2011 — 4 Comments

Like I said last week, things are starting to clear up in the top 25. This was the first week I kept my top 5 (and top 9) the same as they all performed they way I thought they should have performed given their position.

It kills me to rank Baylor as high as I have them but they deserve it with the way they’ve played so far.

I don’t really know what to do with West Virginia. I dropped them after they struggled with Norfolk State for a half but if they give LSU any kind of game I’ll be satisfied that their top 20 ranking is justified.

Clemson also might be a nomadic wanderer in my poll if Florida State throttles them this weekend in Death Valley.

And speaking of Florida State, I thought as a team they looked pretty strong but EJ Manuel, my goodness, he was not good. I’ll be interested to see how they respond.

OU, on the other hand, had no trouble responding. Just like #1 is supposed to do. I thought Scott Van Pelt had the tweet of the night on the Florida State OU game. He always says stuff in 8 words that would take me 8 paragraphs to convey.

My Cowboys sit at 7 but I’ll probably but the winner of this weekend’s game ahead of Stanford at #6 depending on how clean the game is.

Full poll after the jump.

    do you guys think vanderbilt will keep rollin along and plow through the sec? they are 22 right now i wonder if they’ll get top to top 10.just kidding. in all seriousness, who do you think is the worst team currently in the polls?

  • Justin

    Why is Michigan State in the poll? They’ve beaten a couple of pansies and got blasted by ND, who isn’t that good.

      You’re right, it’s tough to gauge them. We’ll know after the Ohio State/Michigan/Wisconsin stretch they have starting next week.

  • ThirdEyeMystic

    Next week will provide another shakedown in the polls. Top 10 looks solid. What do you think will happen to the loser of the OSU/A&M game? I guess it depends on how close it is, but do you think they will drop far in the polls?
