alabama is now ranked #2, its highest ranking since 1993. i would argue they should have moved up to the top spot, since they beat a tougher opponent than oklahoma did in meeting tcu. i mean, if the people making these rankings really believe in them, why do they ignore a defeated opponents ranking when they vote?!
lsu #3, followed by missouri and texas. penn state up to #6. usc fell to 9th-which bolsters my argument. if 1 can fall to 9, why can't #9 climb to #1??

#2 in the AP and #4 in USAToday. i still think Bama is over-rated.................. for now.

How so?
I know they do not get better at bowl time.
But right now. I dont see how they could do anything
better than they have.

Now Texas.
Texas is thoroughly untested.
Missouri has D problems.
Bama is very young.
LSU... I dont know about their QB.

Dont be surprised if the Buckeyes make it back.
If Pryor is used properly, they can be right back in the big one.

he's getting there. lee took all but one snap yesterday. scott is a hell of a running back. lsu may not end up in the hunt for the title this year, but next year....look out! scotts only a junior, lee is improving weekly. fun to watch. what was really fun was watching texas manhandle arkansas.
