TCU, UAB, Kent St, and a 3-3 Miss St are hardly brag-worthy. Wins over Auburn and Florida are more notable, but those two teams have yet to prove themselves.

And a loss to a growing rag-tag Georgia team that struggled against Tennessee, needed all 4 quarters to beat my alma mater AT HOME, and finally loss to Mizzou?

Sorry, but I don't see anything top-10 about LSU. Top 15, maybe.
And to that end, Georgia should be closer to 20.

I'm okay with #1 Alabama; not thrilled with #7 A&M (no quality wins yet but played Alabama well), #11 S.Carolina needs to earn that #11 ranking but I'd keep them inside the top 15; Mizzou won't be able to hold their #14 rank after losing their QB but props to them for trying; Florida should be sitting just outside the top 25, not inside.

In case anyone was wondering.

Who is your top 10?

As for Missouri - you shouldn't rank them on what they might do. You rank them on where they are today. Do you think the teams currently below Florida would beat them?

Its not Bama's fault that Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, Miss. St and Auburn are in the process of rebuilding their programs.

Virginia Tech and Texas A&M's only losses are to Alabama.

I suspect we'll find out a bit more about Alabama's true strength when LSU arrives in Tuscaloosa. It's only fitting; the road to the BCS has gone through either Tuscaloosa or Baton Rouge for the past several years, so here we go again.

FWIW, I'm wondering where Acuda or Ducky are. I'd have thought they'd be hootin n hollerin about the Ducks, who look damn near unstoppable this year.

VT isnt looking that good this year. Yes, they only have one loss but they struggled against some pretty mediocre teams. Alabama is the only good team they have really played.

When it is all said and done Alabama will have played 5 top 25 teams. This while running their conference schedule. Haters gonna hate no matter what they do.

Sounds like Notre Dame last year.

Virginia Tech's defense has lived up to the hype, but their offense is just terrible.

I enjoy the rivalry with LSU because it means SO much every year. Division, SEC, BCS titles are on line as it will be the case this year.

15-20 years ago, Bama fans wouldnt consider this as a big game.
