i'm U of H alum & i don't think U of H is better than Miami; even with them losing badly this week.. other than that I don't see anything out of the ordinary.

That's a fair point. Miami has played probably the toughest schedule in the nation up to this point.

I'm not gonna sell Houston short though unless they give me a reason to. Almost nobody thought they could go to Stillwater and win. After they did, they were still the underdog at home against Texas Tech.

I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that they could beat Miami.

Cincinnati is for real. Pike is a more athletic version of Schaub. so far I've seen his stock rise from 4th to 2nd rd. with lots of football left to play. Did not catch them til late last season because of someone named Barwin, but even without him the defense is quick/strong & offensively very balanced. seem to also get great coaching. would not surprise me if they're in a BCS game when its all said & done.

as usaual, very nice poll bah007 :shades:

Agree on Miami's schedule. that TE who dropped two balls after Miami came out of the second half looking good took the wind out of their sails.

I still like Dan LeFevour myself, as he can run and throw the ball. I could see the Texans picking him up unless we get a new FO staff and that could mean anything at this point. Pike's numbers have been great so far, but he still has only played last year and four games this year

Pike and Lefevour are both spread QB's if that matters to you.

I'm not saying the first half was pretty terrible. But, the offense scored a TD on the first drive of the second half and then got the ball back. They were clearly building some momentum and driving the ball effectively until Graham dropped two passes. I know it's playing the IF game but, say he does catch those passes and Miami punches it in. Suddenly halfway through the third you've got a 14-21 game with momentum. If I'm Miami I like those odds.

Not putting the entire Loss on Graham. Just saying those two drops killed their momentum and chance to pull within a score.

Not to metion both losses were by 1 point. I would love OU to drop out of the 25 being a UT fan but as much as I hate to say it OU is a dang good football team who can play with anyone.

Week 5:
5.LSU (5-0)

Had to save my first post in almost 4 months for something good. LSU has looked absolutely terrible this year. I'll be the first to say Ole Miss was not and is not a top 5 team, but they're good and are definitely one of the top 20 teams in the NCAA. LSU, likewise could go toe to toe with most teams in the country but there's no way they are a top 10 team in my book.

Ole Miss had the benefit the first few weeks of the season of teams ahead of them losing, then all of a sudden they were ranked #4 and people complained. The same has happened to LSU, they'll be lucky to go to the Cotton Bowl this year.

Well when Florida kicks their ass then you will probably be happy to see them drop.

LSU hasn't really impressed me that much up to this point. Their offense is probably going to lose them a few games this year. Right now they sorta have bonus points with me because they already have three road wins at a juncture where most of the top teams haven't even left home yet.

Outside of the SEC title game I dont see Bama nor Florida losing a game although Bama still has LSU @ home in three weeks.

Texas on the other hand has three top 25's on the schedule along with the Aggies & the big 12 title game (either Kansas or Nebraska?) .... We'll find out a lot more about the Horns this weekend.

Maybe we'll get to see McCoy vs Tebow in the Bowl Crap Series Title game after all ....

Just an observation, but you have Notre Dame over Michigan in your Next Five. ND is 4-2 and UM is 5-2. UM beat ND. ND may have played USC close, but they still lost . . as usual. Weis now 1-16 against teams with winning records.

Michigan may have the head to head but I have been more impressed by Notre Dame as a whole.

Michigan has only played three teams with a pulse. And lost to two of them.

My rankings aren't absolute. I have no problem making drastic changes and Michigan still has plenty of chances to impress.

True, but Texas' defense is looking pretty legit at this point in the year. SEC offenses might get shutdown by the Texas D. Either way, Texas vs. Bama/Florida would be a great game IMO. Would be great to ruin that on Thanksgiving though :smooch:

The Texas D is a huge part of why they are undefeated .... the offense has yet to really get it completely together.

I think the Texas defense is better than either Florida or Bama's offense ....

It comes down to how their offense compares to the opposing defense and who wins the turnovers .... Right now Im not sure how good the Texas offense really is.

I found out the hard way last year that head to head isn't the only thing that matters.

Yeah Oregon lost to Boise St fair and square. But they have also beat Utah, California, and USC.

The Boise State debate drives me batty. They've played exactly one team all year. How can someone say that major teams like UT and OU deserve to be downgraded for playing LaTech and New Mexico State once a year before they embark on their grueling conference run when BSU plays 11 of those teams in a 12 game season? Wow, they beat Nevada. They've got my #1 vote.

Iowa belongs up there though. They may not finish there as the season isn't over (and for the record I'd put a 1 loss team in the Big 10 ahead of an undefeated team from the WAC unless the Big 10 team lost to a bad opponent), but going undefeated in the Big 10 is a lot more impressive than going undefeated in the WAC.

2002 OSU had a great defense. No phase of that Iowa team is anywhere near what they were. Also, the big 10 is garbage for the most part. Penn State is overrated and OSU is too. Like i said in my earlier post, it was just a matter of time before someone got them Stanzi or no Stanzi.

We'll see. Can't imagine it will look good. Their win over Ohio St is the only thing keeping them floating right now.

I'd have the Froggies in the top 2. They've been playing better than anybody, on both sides of the ball.

And get USC out of there. They've been getting smoked. They don't belong.

Debated jumping TCU over Florida but didn't. I'm certain that my top four are the best four in the nation. In what order, I'm not sure. Still think Texas is the best. #1 in the nation in defense, #2 in points scored, #5 in turnover margin. Tough to argue with that.

Problem with USC is that whenever they lose, a whole host of teams around them lose as well. They are in the middle of the pack as far as three loss teams go.

I was just looking at the BCS standings thinking how close the Frogs are to playing for all the marbles - One loss by Texas and the Frogs win out ....


As for USC - I cant see a team getting whooped by 30+ and remaining in the top 20 .... Yes other teams lost but they have been getting their asses handed to them lately. Then again there are so many 2-3 loss teams its hard to place them.

All of them have a cupcake or two on the schedule .....


I think Texas looks to be the best team right now - the offense looks like I expected it to earlier in the season , the defense has been nothing less than spectacular , the special teams have been very good and they are top 5 in turnover margin. Dont think any other team has made a better statement to be #1.

TCU - All I can say is wow ... they just keep on winning and doing so impressively.

I still dont know. They are a quality football team no doubt. But they have only faced a couple of teams that even have the talent to beat them. MAYBE Virgina, even though they are bad this year. BYU and Utah could beat them, so I think those were solid wins.

But they are a dangerous team who will have alot to play for if they make it into a bowl game, and should be able to play with anyone ala Boise State a few years ago with Oakrahoma.

They won at Clemson, who has a shot at the ACC title.

Same thing with Okie St and Houston.

The BCS had them 20 and 21, the AP had them in reverse, at 22 and 18.
The two polls also had GaTech and VTech flipping.

At least OK St. plays in a tougher conference and, thus, a tougher schedule.

Both Techs play virtually the same schedule.

There's absolutely no reason to rank Virginia Tech ahead of Georgia Tech.
