Good grief! Anyone remember a weekend like last one in a while? I didn’t think so. I think we’ve all got this feeling that putting out polls this week is nonsense, and yet it is still what we do isn’t it? Congrats to the AP poll for finally getting #1 and 2 correct, as the GMW Poll has all year.
My voters don’t have as much love for Oregon as I do, but when you look at their body of work and the nature of their loss to Cal–the legit number 3 team in the country–in which they were very much in the game late, I think they must be respected. That makes the argument for the Pac-10 vs. teh SEC as the best conference in America a little stronger. The SEC is tough, but as always, time will tell who’s got the stronger conference this year.
