New, 4 comments

Yes, Alabama proved its worth, but not overwhelmingly.

Alabama may be tops, but LSU is charging.

What we know about this week:

  • Alabama is still very good;

  • Johnny Football is your new Heisman leader;

  • Tennessee is ... not good at defense. Either that, or Oregon is the greatest offensive juggernaut in history.

Here's my ballot:

Rnk Team cWL W-L SoS PF-PA MoV Polls Next opponent Remarks
1 Alabama 1-0 2-0 52.57 84-52 16 1 Colorado State I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt. They did win in college station, and that's no mean feat.
2 LSU
3-0 51.55 138-57 27 6,7 Auburn You have to like what we've seen from this team.
3 Georgia 1-0 1-1 58.7 76-68 4 9,10 North Texas Bye week
4 Texas A&M 0-1 2-1 63.21 159-108 17 10,9 Southern Methodist Noble effort, but their defense is … not worthy. Johnny Football is a god.
5 South Carolina 1-1 2-1 56.15 92-76 5.3 12,13 Sep 28, at Central Florida Hmmm. The Force does not really seem to be with them.
