Rock Chalk Talk BlogPoll Ballot Week 11

I'm expecting to get beat up this week, but I watched a lot of college football this weekend and formed some strong opinions in a few situations.  So that makes me an expert right?

  • Kansas State stands pat.  That was a GREAT game.  I'm sitting in a sports bar with everyone and their mom watching LSU v Bama on almost every TV.  But out of the corner of my eye I can see K-State v Okie Light.  I'm not the only one and slowly there is quite a bit of interest in Bill Snyders team as they appear to have a very good shot at knocking off #3.  In the end they lose, but after the blowout loss to Oklahoma, a close one on the road in Stillwater has restored by belief in the old man.
  • Big drops in the Big 10 for Michigan and Nebraska because my opinion of the conference is returning to that of mediocrity and not one where really good teams are just beating up on eachother.  Nebraska loss is worse, but Michigan looks like they are losing their identity at times.  With Denard Robinson it seems easy and pretty straight forward, but that doesn't appear to be the case.
  • I'm dropping Alabama to five because I don't believe in their offensive ability.  LSU has a great defense, as does Alabama, but normally I think LSU is a little more capable than what they showed on the offensive end and I'm not sure I'd say the same about Bama.  Now I'm ready for Okie Light v LSU solely for the Okie Light offense v LSU defense matchup.  It would also be fun to watch Andrew Luck work against that Tiger defense as well.  We'll see if the Honey Badger really takes what he wants.
  • Middle of the pack I'm liking the Longhorns and Trojans more because they seem to be showing improvement over the course of the season and I think they are building momentum internally.
  • Oregon over Arkansas...I honestly have no clue why I made that decision.  Forget that one, I like the Razorbacks and that should be a great one against LSU over Thanksgiving weekend.  One thing is for sure and that is the fact that LSU is earning their shot and when they get their they will be battle tested.
