Week 5 Top 15

  1. Alabama-They played really well against a okay Florida team.
  2. TCU-They looked a little shaky against Colorado State
  3. NebraskaBye week
  4. Oregon-They beat a very good Stanford team.
  5. Ohio State-They looked really shaky against a far lesser team in Illinois.
  6. Iowa (My Pick for National Champion) -(They are the real deal I think that they would have gone undefeated had Ricki Stanzi not gotten hurt.  Now great teams need to have back ups and they have one as their true freshman quarterback came in finished out the Northwestern game after no real game experience then the next week went to the Horseshoe and almost took down the mighty Buckeyes.  They also have 3 or four great smash-mouth and quick running backs.  So I really think as long as Stanzi doesn't choke and they stay healthy they will have an explosive offense.  They also have most of their exceptional defense coming back which includes this years Ndamukong Suh.) They played really well against a good Penn State team and won by the same margin as Alabama.
  7. Boise State-They creamed yet another one of their cupcakes that fill their conference
  8.  Utah- Bye week
  9.  Arizona- Bye week
  10.  Michigan State- They beat a very good Wisconsin team.
  11.  Oklahoma State- They are shaping up to be really good.
  12.  Nevada - They are looking to be a good team beating Cal by a lot when Arizona only won by one.
  13. Stanford - They lost to a very good Oregon team that very well could win the NCG.
  14.  Michigan- They look to be able to knock some teams of this year
  15. Wisconsin-They lost a very disappointing game to a good MSU team.

  1. Alabama-They played really well against a good Arkansas team.
  2. TCU-They looked a little shaky against SMU
  3. NebraskaThey played okay against South Dakota State but should have won by more
  4. Ohio State-They beat an okay Eastern Michigan team.
  5. Boise State-They well against an Oregon State team that shouldn't even be ranked
  6. Oregon-They handled Arizona State.
  7. Iowa (My Pick for National Champion) -(They are the real deal I think that they would have gone undefeated had Ricki Stanzi not gotten hurt.  Now great teams need to have back ups and they have one as their true freshman quarterback came in finished out the Northwestern game after no real game experience then the next week went to the Horseshoe and almost took down the mighty Buckeyes.  They also have 3 or four great smash-mouth and quick running backs.  So I really think as long as Stanzi doesn't choke and they stay healthy they will have an explosive offense.  They also have most of their exceptional defense coming back which includes this years Ndamukong Suh.) They played demolished Ball State while still not playing very well
  8. Wisconsin-They embarrassed Austin Peay
  9. FloridaThey played where they should be this week.
  10.  Utah- They crushed San Jose State
  11.  Arizona- They beat California.

Week 3 Top 15

  1. Alabama-They played good this week but I don't think they really have played anyone other than Penn State but I'm not totally convinced they were a top 25 team.
  2. TCU-They beat a good Baylor team.  Don't say Baylor isn't good they are but just aren't consistent.
  3. NebraskaThey played really good against Washington.
  4. Ohio State-They beat an okay Ohio team.
  5. Boise State-They played Wyoming so it really doesn't prove much.
  6. Oregon-They demolished Portland State.
  7. Texas-I think that their inconsistency showed against an okay Texas Tech.
  8. Iowa (My Pick for National Champion) -(They are the real deal I think that they would have gone undefeated had Ricki Stanzi not gotten hurt.  Now great teams need to have back ups and they have one as their true freshman quarterback came in finished out the Northwestern game after no real game experience then the next week went to the Horseshoe and almost took down the mighty Buckeyes.  They also have 3 or four great smash-mouth and quick running backs.  So I really think as long as Stanzi doesn't choke and they stay healthy they will have an explosive offense.  They also have most of their exceptional defense coming back which includes this years Ndamukong Suh.) They played really good against Arizona.  They made a late comeback and almost won.  Before people rip me and say I'm a homer look and see that I like Iowa State.  This means that I usually hate the Hawks.  Ok I would say that there was blatant holding calls against Arizona on every play I watched that were ignored/missed.  I don't know for sure if it went both ways but I didn't see much if any of that from the Hawkeyes.
  9. FloridaThey played where they should be this week.
  10. Wisconsin-They played okay but to stay here need to start performing.
  11.  Arizona- They beat a very good Iowa team.
  12.  Utah- They crushed New Mexico.
  13. LSUThey played good against a decent Mississippi State team.
  14. Oklahoma- They played okay against Air Force.
  15. Arkansas- They beat a Georgia team that was picked to win the SEC east

Week 2 Top 15

  1. Alabama-They played really good this week
  2. Iowa (My Pick for National Champion) -(They are the real deal I think that they would have gone undefeated had Ricki Stanzi not gotten hurt.  Now great teams need to have back ups and they have one as their true freshman quarterback came in finished out the Northwestern game after no real game experience then the next week went to the Horseshoe and almost took down the mighty Buckeyes.  They also have 3 or four great smash-mouth and quick running backs.  So I really think as long as Stanzi doesn't choke and they stay healthy they will have an explosive offense.  They also have most of their exceptional defense coming back which includes this years Ndamukong Suh.) They played really good against a also good Iowa State team in a rivalry game that is very inconsistent and can go either way.
  3. TCU-They demolished the lesser Tennessee Tech.
  4. Ohio State-They beat a very good Miami (FL) team.
  5. Boise State-They played a good against VT but this week VT got beat by James Madison so it shows their defeat of VT wasn't that big.
  6. NebraskaThey played really good against Idaho.
  7. Texas-I think that Garret Gilbert is starting to show his real abilities and is coming out and performing.
  8. Oregon-They beat decent Tennessee team by a lot.
  9. FloridaThey played where they should be this week.
  10. Wisconsin-They played okay but in the end the came up a little short of what they will need later in the season.
  11. North CarolinaThey didn't play this week but some other teams stumbled which left some openings.
  12. Oklahoma- They played really well against a good Florida State team.
  13. LSUThey played really well but it was against lowly Vanderbilt.
  14. Georgia Tech- They lost to Kansas who last week lost to North Dakota State.
  15.  Utah- They have played well both weeks and I think they're the real deal.

Again sorry about the bold it keeps coming back.
