Here is my ballot for this weeks trial run:
- Top Five
- Virginia Tech
- Next Seven
- Boise State
- Southern Cal
One thing is for certain... though we have played five games now, there still isn't enough information to legitimately draw distinctions between so many teams among the nation's best 20 or 25. Ranking them in any particular order at this point is just silly. I know that LSU's offense may look like it should disqualify them from the top 5, but they are undefeated with 3 SEC wins and a win on the road at Washington. Their defense is fast, fast, fast and will keep them in most if not all of their games. If they beat Florida, they belong, if they don't, they will slip. More proof that rankings after 5 weeks is still a fool's challenge.
So what do you think? Am I just as confused as the Coaches Poll voters
