So all I have to do next year is beat a first-week Oregon team, TCU, and 12 high schools, and I get to be #2 in the country? Sign me up!

OU would trash half the teams on this list, even on their down year. You're a hack.

As a Boise State fan, I only wish Craig James (voted Boise State #7, TCU #14) had a bit of your perspective. It's also disappointing, that in general, everyone who was calling for TCU to play in the NC game, is now downplaying the Broncos' victory. They just can't win...

As an Iowa fan I wonder about your decision to place them behind Oregon...based on your decision making earlier in the year, Iowa's 27-24 loss in OT to OSU, on the road, with a freshman back-up QB, seems like a better loss than Oregon's 11 point loss on a nuetral field. Iowa was never fancy, but with their starting QB they never lost and handled a fairly dynamic GT team.

I've never understood the criticism the Big 10 gets. You have 4 of the top 15 from the Big 10. I will concede the SEC has the top elite teams, but it would seem no other conference comes close when looking at top to bottom. No issues with your blog poll though, I think that's right on.
