So here's what I got this week:
- Notre Dame looks pretty good.
- Maybe I overestimate San Diego State? But they're 3-1, after all.
- U-M handled Western Michigan, which was thisclose to knocking off #12 Illinois.
I dunno. It's possible I should be more impressed with slates like South Carolina's and Okie State's. When it comes to the teams rated 3 through 6, there's definitely room for argument.
There is no room for argument at #1. My formula gave me Alabama, but screw that. Any voter that votes for anyone other than LSU #1 - what with wins over Oregon, West Virginia, and Mississippi State - should be ignored and then kicked in the shins. I will brook no disagreement.
It's early and we still don't know much about the teams around the country, so there's still a ton of mushiness in this ballot. You don't like something? Say so.
