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

Voting Booth AP

Unlike last week’s upset-apalooza, Week 7 was relatively calm and tranquil, a veritable Barry Manilow record played on a day-long loop.

Sure, there was No. 5 West Virginia’s Lubbock implosion and No. 3 South Carolina’s loss to No. 9 LSU, but, aside from the Mountaineers and Gamecocks spitting the unbeaten bit, there were no other upsets of Top 15 teams.  Hell, one could even argue that LSU’s win over the other USC in Death Valley, where the Tigers have won a school-record 22 straight, was hardly an upset at all.

So, with that, we’ll get right to the whole point of the post: who should be the No. 1 team in the country when the new polls are released early Sunday afternoon?  No. 1 Alabama cruised while No. 2 Oregon had little problem handling the University of Bye Weekend, so, barring a collective voter brain fart of epic proportions, the very top of both the Associated Press and coaches’ poll will remain unchanged.

As for ye’all?  Vote Chicago-style below, and have at it in the comments section below that.

    “Ye’all?” Perhaps you meant y’all which is the contracted version of “you all.” Nit-picky? Yup, just like mid-season polls. Just wait for the insanity coming when the BCS releases it’s computer-driven drivel.

    Alabama is the reigning BCS National Champion, so by virtue of that they remain until someone comes along and beats them.

    It was a fun game for all us, like watching a game at an old drive in movie. This was a great distraction for those evacuated from their homes as well as the relief workers trying to help them be able to return to their homes.

    Spurrier and Miles were entertaining following the game. Both teams played hard, with what appeared LSU’s team with their backs against a wall, and they seemed to play that way. The defense really bottled up a great RB for the Gamecocks. LSU’s offense at least gave the defense some time to rest and be ready for the next series though doing well in the red zone eluded them for most of the game.

    This was an entertaining game between top 10 ranked teams.

    Keep winning each week and the rankings will work out eventually.

    Without question, Oregon and Oregon State should be ranked 1 and 2 respectively. Hey, if Alabama and LSU can play for a national championship with one loss between them, why can’t the Ducks and the Beavers?

    Last week Oregon fans were complaining about how they should be #1 since they played and Alabama did not play. Since Oregon didn’t play this week maybe some of the other teams in the top ten should move up and Oregon should lose their place as #2.

    Alabama is #1, Oregon is #2 and they will remain this way till they lose.

    Does it really matter who’s #1 and who’s #2?

    As long as both keep winning we’ll get what we all want to see – Alabama and Oregon. Without question, they’re the undisputed top two teams in the college football this season.

    I am Mizzou fan, but I am impressed with the Class the Alabama fans have. The SEC is a great conference, unlike the Texas 10 (aka Big XII), my vote goes hands down to ‘Bama.

    I’d love to see Alabama against Oregon that would mean Oregon knocks off USC

    Obviously Idaho should be #1…
