Top 10.

1. LSU

2. Alabama

3. Oklahoma

4. Boise State

5. Wisconsin

6. Oklahoma State

7. Stanford

8. Nebraska

9. South Carolina

10. Virginia Tech

You have South Carolina in the top 10 but not Oregon? Other than that, good list.

Oregon has lost a game. South Carolina has not. South Carolina hasn't looked great so far this year, but fact remains they are 4-0 against decent opponents and loaded with talent and potential.

Hard to make an argument that Boise State can be #2 in your poll but South Carolina can't be Top 10. That is beside whether I think we deserve that ranking or not, just looking at what we can go off of so far this season.

South Carolina has played absolutely miserable football. Especially after watching the Vanderbilt game, there is no way I can see them as a top 10 team. Oregon just finished absolutely crushing Arizona on the road. They look like they're in midseason form right now, while South Carolina is still trying to figure things out. And our only loss was a "neutral site" game against the number 1 team in the country. Boise has looked dominant this year, and have shown no weakness what so ever.

I don't see why Oklahoma State is so low on people's lists. They beat a top-10 opponent on the road. How many other teams ahead of them can make that claim?

How high should they be? All four that have posted have them at 6 or 7. Not everyone has played a top 10 team on the road. Some will, but haven't yet.

Who has Wisconsin played?

UNLV: arguably the worst team in FBS

Oregon State: arguably the worst team in a BCS AQ conference

@ Northern Illinois: middle-of-the-road MAC team

South Dakota: FCS team

And Oklahoma State?

Louisiana-Lafayette: middle-of-the-road Sun Belt team

Arizona: decent Pac-12 team

@ Tulsa: pretty good C-USA team

@ Texas A&M: top-10 opponent on the road

Wisconsin has played soft-lobs and nobodies while Okie State has one huge road win and two other decent out-of-conference wins. There hasn't been anything impressive about Wisconsin's competition. Yeah, Russell Wilson has put up big numbers, but against who? A FCS team and two teams that lost to other FCS teams and that might go winless the entire season. Weeden and Blackmon have done it against legit opponents.

It's the same rationale for LSU jumping Oklahoma: LSU played and beat more impressive teams than Oklahoma.

So we're all just going to ignore the fact that once again Oklahoma State is your prototypical Big XII eggshell armed with a hammer. Right.

/Who's A&M beat to make them so good?

You say that as though Oklahoma State didn't win a rivalry game against a top-10 team in one of the toughest places to win in all of college football. And no matter how overrated you think Texas A&M is, there's absolutely no way you could think any of Wisconsin's opponents thus far are anywhere near as good as the Aggies.

Besides, Justin Blackmon might be the best wide receiver in college football. It's not like Okie State doesn't have playmakers.

Clearly you missed the "hammer" part of the "eggshell armed with hammer" bit. They've got the hammer. They've also got a secondary that can ignite if you glare at it hard enough. That's where they are suspect.

Also, winning in Kyle Field was more impressive before A&M had a lost decade and a half.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

There are only 3 teams in college football that scare me. Alabama, LSU, and Wisconsin. Until something shakes that up everyone else is playing tiddly-winks.
