2010 BlogPoll: Week 10
Well, my gut feeling on Missouri was validated Saturday afternoon. Missouri is a good team, no doubt about it. They just aren't a top ten team. Nebraska, on the other hand, I think is. (Of course, I'm biased.) So my top seven is holding steady this week, though I felt like flipping Oklahoma and Utah this week. That could change with the Utes playing TCU this week. I have to move Iowa up after demolishing a previously undefeated Michigan State team. Oregon State gets in despite three losses after wiping the field with Cal, and a slight nudge to Nevada to bring them into the poll.
I think my Big XII rankings are starting to settle down. I think I still give Oklahoma the edge over Nebraska, if only for "better loss". I'm bumping up A&M to seventh with the quarterback change. Texas Tech, Colorado, and Kansas are just plain bad. But Texas? They're playing like the #9 team in the conference, but do I really think they're only the ninth best team? That's a tough one to answer.
