Polls: AP Florida 1; Coaches Oklahoma 1

The AP has Florida at No. 1 and Oklahoma at No. 2. The Coaches have Oklahoma at No. 1 and Florida at No. 2 -- by a single point. Can't wait to see the individual ballots.

And, predictably, the computers have Florida at, like, No. 4. The BCS "experts" seem to think that the distance between Florida and Texas in the Coaches poll should be enough to mitigate the computers' dislike for Florida.

As for my BlogPoll ballot? Here's how it is sizing up:

(1) Florida; (2) Alabama; (3) Texas; (4) Oklahoma; (5) USC; (6) Penn State; (7) Utah. More coming later.

(That's not to say I think that Florida should play Alabama in the national-title game. But it's my feeling that after you see Florida smash Oklahoma -- far more decisively than Texas' 10-point win over Oklahoma -- we'll all realize that not only is Florida the No. 1 team in the country, but Bama is No. 2. Meaning: I think Bama would beat either Texas or Oklahoma, also. It's really too bad Oklahoma is in the title game ahead of Texas, because I think UT could give Florida a much better game than OU. It's going to be painful for Texas fans to watch the Gators stomp OU.)

Texas would beat Alabama...trust me. I know you're a SEC homer but we're at least the 2nd best team in the nation

How exactly does Alabama deserve the #2 rank? Their best win is an overrated Georgia (Georgia has three losses and ZERO wins over ranked teams). All told, Alabama has 2 top-25 wins. Utah has 3 top-25 wins and no losses. Your SEC bias is outlandish.

wow...you are the biggest Gator homer...i used to enjoy this blog, not its just obnoxious

anyway, as a Horns fan, I will enjoy watching the Gators stomp the Sooners...
