Week 1 Recap
Week 2 Preview

Posted: September 3, 2013

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

As a reminder, 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 how they will finish the year. For example, if based on record and finish, I would have Louisville ranked higher because they have an excellent chance to go undefeated based on their schedule. But I have them ranked significantly lower, because I do not believe they would beat the teams higher than them on a neutral field.

The number in () is last week’s ranking.

1. Alabama 1-0 (1)
2. Oregon 1-0 (2)
3. Florida State 1-0 (3)
4. Ohio State 1-0 (4)
5. South Carolina 1-0 (5)
6. LSU 1-0 (8)
7. Clemson 1-0 (14)
8. Georgia 0-1 (6)
9. Texas 1-0 (7)
10. Stanford 0-0 (10)
11. USC 1-0 (9)
12. Oklahoma State 1-0 (11)
13. Florida 1-0 (12)
14. Notre Dame 1-0 (13)
15. Oklahoma 1-0 (15)
16. Texas A&M 1-0 (16)
17. Miami 1-0 (19)
18. Louisville 1-0 (20)
19. Washington 1-0 (NR)
20. Baylor 1-0 (22)
21. Mississippi 1-0 (23)
22. Wisconsin 1-0 (18)
23. TCU 0-1 (17)
24. UCLA 1-0 (NR)
25. Michigan 1-0 (21)

Dropped: Nebraska (24), Virginia Tech (25)

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.
