    8.USC (3-1)
    9.Oklahoma (2-1)

    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.

    if they can pressure Harris then they can beat Miami.

    i think Oregon should be ranked a bit higher

    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.

    Two loss Oklahoma still in the top 25 with so many real good 1 loss teams .... And ahead of two unbeaten teams. I know Bradford is out and they are a better team with him ....

    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.

    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.

    don't really think a team that's lost 2 out of 4 games should be ranked

    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 ....
