Top 10

This week's top 10. Doing an entire top 25 is just too hard for me. I can't judge a correct top 25 by respectfully seeing all the teams play, therefore a top 10 is a helluva lot more manageable.

1. Ohio State
2. Michigan
3. Auburn
4. Florida
5. Notre Dame
6. Tennessee
7. Louisville
8. California
9. USC
10. Arkansas

No Texas. No West Virginia. Either of these teams have done anything to prove to me that they deserve to be in the top 10. West Virginia can be contained by simply forcing Pat White to throw the ball. Syracuse was able to do it for a while, get a real team out there like Michigan or Ohio State and it will be all night long. The Mountaineers as I said before, will struggle to have 14 pts on tOSU or Michigan.

Texas has yet to show me anything either. Beat an Oklahoma team who is down, barely escaped against Texas Tech and Nebraska. See the prior post for more about them.

Who Benefits most by USC's loss?
I think in all honesty, the Big East champ. Is West Virginia or Louisville honestly the second best team in the nation? Not a snow balls chance in hell. But one should be unbeaten at the end of the regular season and will most likely be the opponent for Michigan/Ohio State on January 8th.

It should also be noted that I feel Notre Dame is stung the most by the Trojans loss. The Irish really wanted and needed USC to be unbeaten when the teams meet in Notre Dame's regular season finale. Now, even though USC is the same team they were one week ago, Notre Dame will not get a quality win for beating the Trojans on the road.
