SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

Notes:

  • The B1G is hiding comfortably in the meaty mediocrity of the poll. Each team has significant concerns.
  • Oklahoma and West Virginia are slotted a bit high in my opinion. Also, I guess we'll see what TCU is all about,.
  • Stanford shouldn't be ranked. I count teams more worthy in the "Others Receiving Votes" category as Utah, Florida, and BYU
My ballot:

Commentary:

  • I think Virginia Tech is ranked too highly in the BlogPoll. They have a stagnant D and I didn't see many playmakers on defense.
  • I am bullish on the Utah schools.
  • The B1G is quite messy. I'm fine with Ohio State and Michigan State right now, but I'm not sure what to do with the rest of the league.
  • Schedule is a silly thing in polls because I think Notre Dame could win 10 games snoozing in he B1G, but of course, I support independence forever.
This all gets more controversial and interesting in the coming weeks. Thoughts?
