Look at all those green bumps at the top of the poll. Saturday confirmed, yet again, that this is the best sport on earth. My thoughts:
- Kansas State and Oregon tumble. I'm probably being too harsh on Oregon (my No. 1 team for weeks), but K-State earned their slot. Klein is hurt, which is unfortunate, but Saturday night showed the cracks in a very weak Big 12.
- The Ohio State Buckeyes are kind of filler for me. I don't know how to slot them. They're football zombies. Really good football zombies.
- Not much is changing in the bottom half of the poll. Huge congrats to Mike Gundy. That man is building something out of a beaten and battered football squad. That man is showing his football chops in spades.
- I love the MAC.
