The first weekend of college football has come and gone, and we already have a few shake-ups to the top ten. Logic would tell you with two top-ten teams playing one another, there would be a winner and a loser. With the season being so young the loser just can’t stay in the top ten, for now. So yes Georgia fans, losing in week one is a difficult pill to swallow, but it’s a long season, and you will have plenty of opportunities to play your way right back into the thick of things.

Other teams either came close to falling out of or fell completely out of the top ten not because they lost a close game to another highly ranked team, but because they struggled with terrible teams at home. Ohio State and Florida ended their games with more questions than answers. They both struggled with MAC teams largely because both the Gators and the Buckeyes were pedestrian on offense and missed tackles all over the field on defense. Both teams showed flashes of greatness on offense, but both have a long way to go.

Zig’s Top Ten:

1)      Alabama

2)      Oregon

3)      Clemson

4)      Stanford

5)      Florida State

6)      Texas A&M

7)      South Carolina

8)      LSU

9)      Louisville

10)  Ohio State

Only a few minor differences from last week. Namely, Clemson enters the top five after a huge win against Georgia. For the record, I am not completely sold on Clemson. History will likely repeat itself as they find a way to lose a game they shouldn’t this season.

The other ‘surprise’ would be the addition of Florida State to the top five. Yes they dominated a dreadful Pitt team, but they did it on national TV with a red shirt freshman quarterback. Jameis Winston is the real deal. This kid is poised beyond his years and has an absolute rocket for an arm. Florida State is back and that game in October against Clemson is looking bigger and bigger.

LSU enters my top ten after they beat a very good TCU team. LSU certainly looked like a national title contender and Zack Mettenberger looks like a completely different quarterback. I would like to purchase a lifetime supply of whatever that kid drank in the offseason and force feed it to Braxton Miller. Mettenberger may not win the Heisman or be a first round draft pick, but if he plays like that all season, LSU is suddenly a legit national title team again.

Stay tuned for my weekly picks. This week’s games could cause another shake-up in my top ten!
