The rankings should be much different in week 2. Assuming Ole Miss wins convincingly today, and Florida State squeezes one out against Miami (two likely scenarios) what do you see happening to the rankings? I know we could just wait but I love to speculate and see other people's opinions before the rankings come out.

I know last year someone tried to create their own equations for this stuff. Bah I think it was.

Here is the week 1 AP top 25:

1 Florida (58) 1498
2 Texas (2) 1424
3 Oklahoma 1370
4 USC 1313
5 Alabama 1156
6 Ohio State 1113
7 Virginia Tech 1054
8 Mississippi 1047
9 Oklahoma State 989
9 Penn State 989
11 LSU 914
12 California 746
13 Georgia 714
14 Boise State 659
15 Georgia Tech 593
16 Oregon 587
17 TCU 521
18 Florida State 307
19 Utah 289
20 Brigham Young 267
21 North Carolina 261
22 Iowa 229
23 Notre Dame 225
24 Nebraska 207
25 Kansas 13

My guess at the top 25 assuming the two above scenarios:

1. Florida
2. Texas
3. Alabama
4. USC
5. Ohio State
6. Oklahoma State
7. Ole Miss
8. Penn State
9. Cal
10. LSU
11. Boise State
12. BYU
13. Georgia Tech
14. TCU
15. FSU
16. Oklahoma
17. Virginia Tech
18. Georgia
19. Utah
20. North Carolina
21. Notre Dame
22. Kansas
23. Iowa
24. Nebraska
25. Tennessee

Yeah that didn't work out for me so well last year. Say what you want about the computer polls but those things are more complicated than any of us will ever know.

As far as the top 25 shake up, I don't think we will see much of one. The voters are ridicuolous. I would bet money that Oklahoma will still be ranked despite being winless. There is so much ego and bias in these polls that they really can't be taken seriously until we approach the end of the season.

Here is my poll so far, based on my own eyes and nothing else:

1. Florida
2. Texas
3. Alabama
4. USC
5. Oklahoma St
6. California
7. Boise St
8. BYU
9. Penn St
10. Georgia Tech
11. Ohio St
12. Ole Miss
13. LSU
14. Notre Dame
15. Nebraska
16. Kansas
17. North Carolina
18. Utah
19. Missouri
20. Michigan St
21. Oregon St
22. Tennessee
23. Iowa
24. Arizona
25. South Carolina

TCU is not ranked because they haven't played a game yet. I will never rank a team that has 0 wins.

These will change based upon what happens in the final two games of the week.
