When you blow out a team like Oklahoma in their place, people start to take notice. This morning, that means the voters of the USA Today Coaches Poll, where the Bears jumped from #10 a week ago to #6 now, just behind #5 TCU. I'm pretty happy with this position overall, even though I know probably a dozen of you are thinking "BUT THIS POLL DOESN'T EVEN MATTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR."
|1||Mississippi State||Mississippi State||Alabama|
|2||Florida State||Florida State||Mississippi St|
|7||Arizona State||Ohio State||Florida State|
|8||Ohio State||Arizona State||Baylor|
|10||Ole Miss||Ole Miss||Georgia|
|12||Michigan State||Michigan State||Arizona State|
|13||Kansas State||Kansas State||Kansas State|
|23||Colorado State||Georgia Tech||Arizona State|
The AP poll has been added, courtesy of the mothership's weekly composite top 25 post. As expected, Baylor is in identical position in both polls.
Thoughts? Baylor aside, I find it pretty interesting that Alabama is above Oregon given the results from yesterday and recent weeks. I know Oregon has had a lot of injury trouble and that may limit them going forward, but they beat a better team in Utah than Alabama did in LSU. At least Utah is interested in scoring points.
