Poll: And the No. 1 team in the country is…

Let’s face it.  The utter evisceration Alabama performed on Florida Saturday evening should leave little doubt as to which team stands atop the rankings after five weeks of the 2010 regular season.

However, one might be able to make a case for Oregon following their win over a very, very good Stanford team.  Or maybe even Boise State for those, like me, who still think they could play with any team in the country.

Ohio State?  Get back to us when The Vest stops playing it close to his attire against vastly inferior opponents.

Regardless, here’s your chance to let your vote be heard.  Say it loud, say it proud.  Or something like that.

    I’m going to vote for Boise to be #1, because that shows everybody I’m not just hip and trendy, but enlightened and generally a better person.
    Plus, the beatdown they put on that girl’s wheelchair basketball team last night is proof they could beat any team in the nation.

    I agree that an Oregon-Bama Nat’l Championship would be an awesome game. However, how about this: Bama-Nebraska. Two teams that like to run and play great defense.
    Consider this: Bama runs the table. Ohio St runs the table (I expect them to lose at least one, but let’s pretend). Nebraska beats Oklahoma (or vice versa) in Big 12 championship….so an undefeated Big 12 team. Boise St and TCU also undefeated. Who plays Bama?

    How about this: Nebraska actually plays a decent team at some point. That would really be something. Any team that has a schedule that makes Boise State or TCU look like they are playing in the SEC can’t be taken seriously.

    Oh dear, oh dear … my first chance back on the CFT boards and people are talking about undefeated seasons and national championship games.
    Let’s just talk about South Carolina.
    Where is blitz?
    @rolltide …
    That was hilarious ROFL
    @JT, if you’re still around … CONGRATS! Knew your Brownies could be those annoying cats and their hyper-egos ;)

    If Boise State wins out like they should, they definitely deserve a shot at the national championship. They have the best record in football over the last four years and BCS teams will not schedule them because they are afraid of them. Ask Oregon. The West has some awesome teams but you BCS guys simply refuse to consider their worth. Utah kicked Alabama’s butt in 2009, but they are never mentioned in the championship talk. Go WAC Go MWC.

    Thor –
    “How about this: Nebraska actually plays a decent team at some point. That would really be something. Any team that has a schedule that makes Boise State or TCU look like they are playing in the SEC can’t be taken seriously.”
    Let’s get real here. Schools only control their non-conference schedule. Oregon’s non-conference schedule is not any tougher than Nebraska’s. New Mexico and Portland State? Each has only one non-conference game against a school from a BCS conference. Very few BCS conference schools schedule more than one non-conference game against schools from BCS conferences. Alabama has 2 and one of those is Duke. USC has 2, Virginia and Minnesota. Oh my! Ohio State has 1. Oklahoma has 1. Florida has 1. Oregon has 1. Nebraska has 1. Question their schedule is BS.
    You can make an argument that right now the Pac 10 is tougher than Big 12 North. But then again, Nebraska gave Washington a major beat down, and the Washington turned around and beat USC.
    Nebraska has a history in the game that only a very few schools can match. Don’t get me wrong, I am a Husker fan and no way would I rank them higher than Oregon right now. And if they both win out, Oregon should be in the title game. But to scoff at them the way you did is just hot air.
