    LSU jumps to No. 6 in latest poll; Wisconsin out of top 10

    LSU has surged to No. 6 in The Associated Press college football poll after its second victory of September against a highly ranked team, and Wisconsin has tumbled to 18 after becoming the first top-10 team to be upset by an unranked team.

    Top-ranked Alabama strengthened its hold on No. 1 on Sunday, receiving a season-high 58 first-place votes from the media panel.

    Clemson slipped out of the No. 2 spot for the first time this season. Georgia moved up a spot to second behind the Crimson Tide, giving the Southeastern Conference the top two teams in the ranking.

    Clemson is third with three first-place votes, followed by No. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 Oklahoma.

    LSU has now gone from No. 25 to start the season to No. 6 in three weeks.

    This is basically what happened. A lot of the voters in South jumped LSU over us (ie McMurphy) and barely penalized TCU.
    So we gained barely any pts in AP poll ... but at the same time they didnt ding TCU.

    The people who dinged TCU are beat writers for Rutgers, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan .... and they too gave us no credit.

    It's Ohio against the world

    And how do both the writers and the SIDs both have Wiscy far above BYU?

    They’re sure, without further context, that the game was a fluke?

    Based on what?

    I only ask the question to point out the answer to it, which we all know.

    College football's top-five parity problem actually no problem at all
    Bill Bender @BillBender92

    You either love it or hate it.

    The haters would say college football has a parity problem in 2018. It's a five-pointed problem that features Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and Oklahoma. The other 124 teams? They're just trying to catch up. The haters will use it as an excuse to talk College Football Playoff expansion, the growing gap between the Power 5 and Group of 5 and to say that the regular season just isn't as exciting as it used to be. Sizing up the competitors from week to week is basically a copy-and-paste exercise.

    What's the problem? There's a "Power 5 within the Power 5," and it's ruining college football.

    Or not. Adjust that thinking now. Remember how riveting the two-way race was between USC and Texas in 2005 — where you knew those teams were simply better than everybody else and there was nothing anybody could do about it? This feels like that — except five teams from four conferences are involved. It might not be fun, say, five years from now, but you have to appreciate the domination in the short term.

    Those five schools have combined for 75 percent of the College Football Playoff appearances so far, and appear to be a good bet to snag at least 75 percent of those appearances this year. The numbers are staggering so far.

    Those five schools have combined to outscore opponents 568-154 – an average score of 47.8 to 12.3. That's a five-touchdown difference, and it shows on the field every Saturday.

    The quarterbacks have made it entertaining, too. Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, Georgia's Jake Fromm, Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins and Oklahoma's Kyler Murray would be a good bet to fill the row at the Heisman Trophy ceremony if it were tomorrow. Clemson's Kelly Bryant is right in the mix if he can hold off freshman phenom Trevor Lawrence. The backup options, including Jalen Hurts, Justin Fields and Tate Martell look capable when pressed into the action.

    Seriously. Will Alabama average 50 points per game with Tagovailoa at the controls? It has so far. Is Kyler Murray the next Baker Mayfield? Is Haskins Ohio State's best quarterback ever? How many running backs does Fromm have at his disposal? Is Clemson's offense actually better with Bryant and Lawrence sharing time? None of those is a ridiculous question.

    Cont'd ...

    Looks like Jonny Miller (the clown who had us at #25 after week 2) simply mismarked his ballot for week 2. Here are his rankings of Ohio State so far this season:

    Preseason: 5
    Week 1: No poll
    Week 2: 25
    Week 3: 4
    Week 4: 3

    You guys should be ahead of Clemson, honestly. They have not looked impressive at all.
