Post-Season BlogPoll Preliminary

Dave Reginek

The top ten have actually separated themselves pretty well, although you can argue any order. After #15, it's a mess. We should have a non-BCS conference champ in the top 16, but there's real room for discussion about which one.

You know the drill.

1. Notre Dame

2. Alabama

Yeah, we know who's in the national championship game. After that, there are actually eight more teams with top ten resumes. Who woulda thunk?

3. Oregon

4. Kansas State

5. Florida

6. Georgia

7. Stanford

8. LSU

9. A&M

10. South Carolina

This following group seems pretty defined to me. UCLA has lost more, but with the exception of a crazy game at Cal, they're mostly quality losses.

11. Florida State

12. Oklahoma

13. Oregon State

14. UCLA

15. Clemson

After #15, it gets pretty murky, but there are three non-BCS teams that I feel have separated themselves. No, major polls, Boise State is not one of them. You ranking them ahead of these three is inexcusable.

16. Utah State

17. Northern Illinois

18. San Jose State

The following seven teams, along with Ball State and possibly Nebraska, should all be ranked #25. But they can't. So here's a guess at an ordering.

19. Kent State

20. Baylor

21. Wisconsin

22. Oklahoma State

23. Louisiana Tech

24. Louisville

25. Arkansas St
