The limited computer output put the Ducks over 'Bama. Florida dropped from 10 to 20 and after BYU ran all over the Longhorns they dropped from 16 to 35.

Way too early to rank. The big teams have been playing Southeastern Slime Rock Valley State the last 2 weeks, and have not begun to play other strong schools.

Agree, it is too early but Ohio State is looking really bad in the computers and they may decide it.

Ohio State’s remainging conference schedule includes only 2 top 25 teams, Michigan and Northwestern. Add that to the fact that AP and Coaches poll puts them at 4 and apparently the computers hate the early schedule and the late schedule looks weak too.

You get that the Buckeyes will need to be one of at most 2 undefeated teams or they are out.

Ohio State drops in polls despite beating two opponents 82-27. I suspect if they had won 300-2 they would have still dropped to the same position

That’s “An Ohio State Team” ...

Or, “One of Ohio State’s Teams”

Or, “A Team from Ohio State”

Didn’t Oklahoma State lose 3 starters for rules violations?

Hmm...how many in the top 10 are vulnerable due to getting whacked by ineligible USC?

They should make a rule that everytime someone says “THE Ohio State” (or any other team) they have to say “THE” in reference to the opposing team’s name. Maybe THE Ohio staters will hear how ridiculous they sound!

Bama and Oregon are easily the two best teams. Oregon’s previous light linemen has been resolved, and even Alabama can’t match the speed of Oregon.

You are right.
I don’t care what they call themselves, but when you say “Jennifer Aniston”, people assume that you mean “the” Jennifer Aniston, not some other Jennifer Anniston in Arkansas or Alaska or somewhere.

So how many “Ohio States: are there out there, anyway?

Okay I hate Alabama (Auburn guy) but I heard that issue in 2010 and every year since. SEC teams have speed to burn and are huge and very physical. Unfortunately Alabama is the best of those teams and will very likely win it all again even against Oregon. That’ll be 8 in a row by 4 different teams.

USC is eligible to play in the BCS as it was last year, but ineligible to play any decent football as long as Lame Kiffin is the head coach.

Fight On!!

Hadn’t been paying attention.

Looks like we need a coaching change, so this year’s freshman have chance at a decent 2015 season.

“Ohio State drops in polls despite beating two opponents 82-27.”

Oregon passed Ohio State because they beat 2 opponents 125-13.

And one of Oregon’s opponents was Virginia which is not a good team but not a patsy either.

OSU beating of Buffalo did not look good as the game was actually still in doubt in the 3rd quarter.

USC does not have a QB. Check out the stats from last weeks game.

completions-attempts-yards-ints.

Cody Kessler 8-13-41-1, Max Wittek 3-8-13-1

The total is 11 complete, 21 attempts, 54 yards and two interceptions including a pick 6.

Marqise Lee who would probably be the first receiver taken in the NFL draft had 27 yards. Let me play QB with Lee, and I think even I get more than 27 yards.

from cbssports.com

Tre Madden rushed for 151 yards and Marqise Lee had seven catches for just 27 yards for the Trojans, whose inept offensive performance had fans loudly booing and chanting even before USC fell behind. They really let Kiffin have it when he ran up the tunnel alone after his halftime interview.

Kiffin’s two-quarterback offense managed only 193 yards on 63 plays, with no pass completion longer than 8 yards.

Here is more on Matt Wittek who replaced Barkley after he was injured last year.

Sun Bowl 2012, USC vs. Georgia Tech
Max Wittek: 14-of-37 for 107 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

I was at a bar with two of my Stanford classmates and we were laughing our butts off watching this guy try to play college football.

That's a stretch..

Coach "Boom" is in for a very tough year..either that, or we go back to the single wing..

Yeah, I know. ;) But this team has absolutely no on-field leadership.

For the most part, but Georgia should get credit for starting with two tough games.

Forgot about the Barkley injury.

What’s his status?

Barkeley is in the NFL, Eagles to be exact and 3rd string behind Vick and Nick Foles (Arizona).

“Hey Texas, you can have your old defensive coordinator back.”

We will throw in Mack Brown and you have a deal!
