    LSU has been most impressive thus far. Alabama isn't far behind, and they likely have the advantage moving forward with the game being in Tuscaloosa.

    Seems like there are many more undefeated teams than usual. Lots of K-States out there (funny, they don't have much talent or depth).

    I'm not a believer in Jarrett Lee though he does have a great amount of SEC experience, but lawd are they fast on defense. Smothering fast. I'll take LSU to go all the way this year.

    Honestly, I don't think half the otions deserve to be in this poll, but I thought I would put all the undefeateds that could fit.

    It's gonna make the second half of the season interesting.

    Yea, no way that Michigan, Illinois, KjSu or GT finish the regular season undefeated.

    It will all work itself out.

    Someone has to lose in the following

    LSU/Bama
    KSU/OU
    OU/OSU
    Mich/Ill
    Ill/Wisconsin
    Clem/GT

    Unfortunatley Boise and Houston appear to have fairly easy remaining roads to an undefeated regular season. SMU could makes things interesting for Houston and TCU could make it interesting for Boise. Other than that it looks smooth sailing.

    We should see the LSU/Bama winner face off against the OU/OSU winner in the championship game assuming both teams are undefeated. That's my guess. It would also be great to see an undefeated Wisconsin miss out and an undefeated Boise St. miss out. It would further show the inherent flaws about voting for a champion (pollsters/voters still affect BCS standings)...

    I'm content leaving out non-AQ schools with perfect records against BCS teams with losses if for no other reason than what Utah has shown us this year about being in a more competitive conference... It's easy to win with your starters healthy for one or two games a year. When you face week-in and week-out competition, you don't win without depth. That's what the non-AQ schools will never have at the same level...

    Great. A site that not only tells me that Boise is better than LSU and CSU is better than CU and San Jose State (who both beat them), but sets off my virus detection software. Thanks for that.... :thumbsup:

    Boise would get ripped by LSU and Alabama. There's a huge difference between playing Georgia as opposed to playing LSU and Alabama.

    FYI We are going to beat their striped ass.

    @osgators Rachel George Burton was asked to compare LSU and Alabama defenses. "Alabama’s hands down a lot better. A lot more physical, just tougher guys." #Gators

    I recently had a $500/ticket offer for my endzone tickets. Lowers between 20s-$700/800.

    Alabama. I will, however, fully admit my bias toward the Tide.
