I now present the definitive Top 25 poll. Each week I will poll myself, tabulate the results, and then present them.

2. Auburn 12-2 (3) [-]
3. Michigan State 13-1 (4) [-]
4. Alabama 11-2 (2) [1]
5. Missouri 12-2 (6) [-]

21. Wisconsin 9-4 (17) [18]
22. Duke 10-4 (NR) [-]
23. Washington 9-4 (23) [-]
24. Vanderbilt 9-4 (NR) [-]

Please keep in mind that this poll is based on who I think is the better team. In my opinion, a higher ranked team would beat a lower ranked team on a neutral field. It is not based on the traditional methods of polls in which record trumps all so an undefeated team from Padukah U. is ranked higher than a one loss SEC team. This is solely a measure of which team I think would win on a neutral field.

Note: There may be significant fluctuation to my rankings as I watch teams play, as my opinion of their ability to beat teams above and below them on a neutral field may change. I will not be simply sliding teams up and down based on if they win or lose, but rather reevaluating my opinion each week. I believe this is how a poll should be done.
