My Top 25

The new AP poll is out. As always, I’ll post my ballot, and starting today, I will also post the actual Top 25 below it instead of just a link.
First, here’s mine:
1, Ohio State
2, Oregon
3, Boise State
4, TCU
5, Nebraska
6, Oklahoma
7, Utah
8, Michigan State
9, LSU
10, South Carolina
11, Alabama
12, Arkansas
13, Stanford
14, Auburn
15, Iowa
16, Oklahoma State
17, Wisconsin
18, Nevada
19, NC State
20, Missouri
21, Florida State
22, Florida
23, Oregon State
24, Arizona
25, Air Force
Now, here’s the real one, including first-place votes, record, total points and previous rank:
RK TEAM RECORD PTS PVS
1 Ohio State (34) 6-0 1453 2
2 Oregon (15) 6-0 1427 3
3 Boise State (8) 5-0 1395 4
4 TCU (1) 6-0 1304 5
5 Nebraska 5-0 1236 7
6 Oklahoma (2) 5-0 1225 6
7 Auburn 6-0 1104 8
8 Alabama 5-1 1021 1
9 LSU 6-0 999 12
10 South Carolina 4-1 978 19
11 Utah 5-0 926 10
12 Arkansas 4-1 813 11
13 Michigan State 6-0 806 17
14 Stanford 5-1 732 16
15 Iowa 4-1 648 15
16 Florida State 5-1 547 23
17 Arizona 4-1 472 9
18 Wisconsin 5-1 410 20
19 Nevada 6-0 376 21
20 Oklahoma State 5-0 348 22
21 Missouri 5-0 298 24
22 Florida 4-2 209 14
23 Air Force 5-1 187 25
24 Oregon State 3-2 186 NR
25 West Virginia 4-1 141 NR
You’ll notice I jumped Oregon to No. 2 after the Alabama loss, and also threw Oregon State back into the poll after its win at Arizona, putting four Pac-10 teams in.
You’ll also see I’m in lockstep with the real poll until pick No. 7 (not sure if that’s a good or bad thing, but it is what it is). I’ve got Utah higher than a lot of people, but I continue to be impressed with the way the Utes take care of business.
Admittedly, they haven’t played much of anybody yet, but they will soon (TCU and Notre Dame, notably) so that’ll get solved eventually and we’ll see where Utah really is. (Maybe I’m just already on that Pac-12 bandwagon).
It’ll be nice to see Ohio State get a better test this week at Wisconsin (and too bad the Buckeyes don’t have to play Michigan State this year).
And as for the Ducks, admittedly their defense looks like it might be a little shakier than advertised. But, boy, that offense. Will anybody in the Pac-10 hold it under 500 yards and 40 points again this season? The Ducks get the weekend off now to prepare for a Thursday night home game Oct. 21 with UCLA. Ultimately, I just looked at how unstoppable Oregon seems right now — no matter who the QB or the situation — and thought they deserved the No. 2 spot.
