The Blogpoll is up, yeah I know it is a day late but that's because I was taking so much time making sure it was almost perfect for you folks to shred up. Hats off to Auburn for ending the LSU crazy train as well as to Wisconsin for following up their Ohio State victory with a nice showing against the Hawkeyes in Kinnick Stadium. New BCS standings are out along with the polls and the biggest thing that stood out to me wasn't the Auburn leap frogging of everyone to #1 but the thin sliver separating Boise State from TCU. Just .0013 separates the Broncos from the Horned Frogs and the boys from Ft. Worth still have a game against #7 Utah on their schedule next weekend.
Before we get to the Blogpoll goodness we also give a nice little shout out to our boys over at Wide Right and Natty Lite and their Cyclones of Iowa State for physically manhandling Texas. Not a fluke win, a truly impressive showing by Paul Rhoads. On the flip side of that coin we've got the Longhorns and the fine folks over at Barking Carnival decided to have me join them on a podcast along with Adam Kramer to talk about the overall state of college football as we are a week away from November. Click here to download the show folks or just go ahead and listen to spot while you check out the site, plenty of great information on the show; everything from Boise St vs TCU/Utah and revised BCS Championship Match-Ups to some talk about John Blake and the UNC football program.
Now on to the poll folks and after this weekend my national championship game is completely dead, Oklahoma won't be able to get in as a one-loss team AND Iowa is completely out of it with their second loss of the year.
-Dropping out of the poll. We've got the Longhorns, Wildcats and Mountaineers tap dancing out of the Top 25. All three teams lost, Texas and WVU lost to teams they were supposed to be athletically and schematically superior to. Northwestern fought hard but couldn't hang on at home to a still undefeated Michigan State football team that, appears to be gaining in a dynamic capacity.
