BlogPoll Ballot from week #1

The tough thing about the first week of the season is that we still don’t have a complete picture of just how good or bad some teams are. I am always reluctant to make any major changes. The only noticeable move I made within the top tier teams was moving USC and Oklahoma up one spot each while moving Ohio State down two spots. For some reason tOSU’s win over Youngstown State just didn’t feel like it was a "quality" win. I know, I know you could probably say the same thing about Georgia and Oklahoma. I mean almost everyone is playing a cupcake in their first game so what do we really see.

I am still not ready to anoint USC to the number one spot. That is probably more out of superstition than anything else. It is hard to argue against that this team could be very special if they continue play like they did on Saturday in Charrlottesville it was just that good.

Alabama makes big jump into the poll with a very convincing win against Clemson, to the point I dropped Clemson out the poll completely.

As for Tennessee, I have noted elsewhere that their game against ucla was not going to be slam dunk. Regardless, it was an ugly game. While I am not going to get into the "who's better the Pac-10 or the SEC" debate but I will say that it is very telling that the SEC has a very tough time winning on the road outside of the SEC. For their win ucla breaks into the poll...the question is how long they will be there?

Next week things will get a little more interesting and I will be a little more informative as to how my votes will go.
