- Ohio State---I anticipated a healthy win against Iowa and the Buckeyes delivered. As reward, they've solified and consolidated their No. 1 ranking
- Michigan---I hope they Wolverines don't burn me with this one. They're playing loose and are excellent on both sides of the ball
- Auburn---South Carolina switched to the mobile Syvelle Newton which threw the Auburn defense off, but their offense responded by playing keepaway and literally holding the ball the entire third quarter
- USC---Survived raucous Pullman. Actually held a 28-15 lead late but relaxed too soon and let the Cougars back into the game
- Florida---Stifling defense once again saved the day and got their revenge against Alabama. Who knew Chris Leak could run for 45 yards?
- Louisville---Upon reflection I'm a little less high on them at the moment. Ahhh those crazy bye weeks
- LSU---Beat up on poor Mississippi State. Have found a way to consistently work Early Doucet into the offense, now have a nice receiver troika with Davis and Bowe
- Oregon---Winning with authority and bottled up a good ASU offense
- West Virginia---The Slaton and White Show had a bye week
- Texas---Just look down a notch this year, masked by a bunch of games against nobodies
- Notre Dame---They're still a good football team...
- Tennessee---A notch below the SEC's Big Three
- California---Could have tanked after week one but didn't
- Clemson---Play defense, run the ball and score touchdowns unabated. Sounds good to me
- Oklahoma---Scrappy, talented, but simply not elite
