Here are the results after an entire weekend of action across the board in college football:
... and here is the writeup on the mothership SBNation.com.
I am complete agreement with Bill Connelly in that I find September polls pretty meaningless. Mostly I've been sitting back and trying to watch as many games as I can and figure out if any of these guys even deserve to be close to their preseason ranking.
Here are the differences between the BlogPoll and the AP/Coaches Polls:
WVU +3/2 - Bloggers love them some Holgo beatdown. 69-34 was the final vs. Marshall.
Michigan St +2 - Bloggers tend to have more respect than the press for a team that beats Boise. They'll contend in the Big 10 for sure.
Clemson +2 - Beating an SEC team like Auburn gives this team hope.. which will only come crashing down eventually.
Nebraska +3/1 - Destroyed Southern Miss. Don't know why the AP is hating.
Oklahoma St +3/1 OK so they beat Savannah State by a lot, but what does that actually prove?
Tennessee +3/5 - Solid opening vs. NC State impressed SEC folks.
The BlogPoll hates:
Oklahoma -2 - UTEP? Come on now. When will Oklahoma get it together?
Arkansas -3/1 - They beat Jacksonville State. Okay.
South Carolina -3 - Barely beat Vanderbilt
Wisconsin -4 - Barely eked past Northern Iowa of all teams.
Texas -1/3 - Slow start vs. Wyoming, normal Texas weariness
TCU -2/5 - You can't move up in the polls if you don't play.
