0 Shaee's College Football Top 10

By Shaee Flatt

After a week of college football that saw very little defense, no major upsets, and some video game like numbers from multiple players, here is my new top 10 in college football. And as always, let the debate begin.
1.     Alabama (5-0) – Maybe I should just start my poll at number 2 from now on.
2.     Florida State (5-0) – Looking at Florida State’s talent combined with their weak schedule, I see no reason they can’t be the team that faces Alabama for the national championship.
3.  Georgia (5-0) – Georgia’s two headed monster at running back, combined with the conference’s best quarterback, and a defense that hasn’t quite reached its potential yet is a scary combination for the rest of the SEC. Big jump this week for the Dawgs.
4.     Oregon (5-0) – Another easy win for the Ducks. Look out for Washington this week, though. New DC Justin Wilcox has the Huskies D looking strong, and could pose potential problems for Oregon this week.
5.     LSU (5-0) – LSU drops three spots this week after a miserable performance against Towson. I expect the Tigers to get their first loss this Saturday in the swamp, but until it happens, the Tigers are in my top 5 based mostly off of experience.
6.     Ohio State (5-0) – I made a mistake last week, by saying Ohio State could make a rose bowl run, as I forgot they weren’t eligible. Despite that fact, the Buckeyes still have the Big Ten’s best team.
7.     West Virginia (4-0) – My, oh my. While scoring 70 points is impressive, allowing Baylor to score 63, which was more than the Bears could score against SMU, Sam Houston State, and ULM is pretty embarrassing. While the offense is great, the bad defense will catch up to the Mountaineers eventually. Maybe this week against Texas?
8.     South Carolina (5-0) – South Carolina struggled early against Kentucky, but pulled away in the second half. While it was a good bounce back, the Gamecocks will need to be sharper as they get deeper into their grueling SEC schedule, and it has to start this week when they host Georgia.
9.     Kansas State (4-0) – After their huge win over Oklahoma, Kansas State was off this week. They should have an easy time the next couple of weeks against Kansas and Iowa State.
10.  Oregon State (3-0) – While I think there are a few teams below them more talented whom I think Oregon State would have a tough time beating, I can’t deny what the Beavers have done. They’ve beaten three solid football teams, and for that, they break the top ten this week. We’ll see how long it lasts.
