The U.P. Top 25 [week three]

Week three sees a new number one despite a split in the top votes.  We also see the entrance of a MAC team, thanks to one voter constantly voting for the Chippewas.  And no, I cannot explain Oregon’s four-spot drop.

Three voters abstaining again (same three jackasses as last week).  Here is the third week of the Uncle Popov Top 25 (or 26, this week), based on week six of the college football season.

  1. out of the top 10! really?! So LSU loses to the number 1 team (number 2 this week) at home, by a relatively close score, and they drop out of the top ten. How is LSU’s loss (or entire body of work across the season) at all different from Ohio State’s? How about USC? USC’s loss is to Washington, who got drubbed by the Bayou Bengals at home (and Stanford for that matter). Hey Uncle Popov, let’s spark some debate and publish the comprehensive poll, as well as the polls of individual voters.

    • Good call, crumbie!

      as for LSU, from my own take, LSU was no different from Alabama at #1 last season. there was no one else to put there and LSU moved up primarily because others lost. given the body of work of LSU, the loss to Florida only justified finally taking LSU down. a last minute stand against Mississippi State? struggling against a Georgia team that made Tennessee look like the New Orleans Saints? so that is my take on LSU.
