Goodnight Sweet Title Hopes

Monday, October 05, 2009

Sam Bradford likely came back to college for a multitude of reasons. He likely enjoys his teammates, he probably enjoys being the king on campus, perhaps he even enjoys going to class. Maybe he didn't think he was quite ready for the NFL, or that he didn't want to be a Lion, and that another year of seasoning would treat him well. Bradford also likely had thoughts of a potential back to back Heisman spinning in his head. All of these were likely contributing factors to his decision to return to school but nothing was more of a factor than his desire to do what he could not last season, win the BCS Championship game. Now after just 5 weeks of college football and just 4 games for Oklahoma that opportunity is shattered.

With that out of the way, let's move on to the preliminary Top 25 rankings, where Oklahoma is nowhere to be found.

1 Alabama
2 Boise State 1
3 Virginia Tech 1
4 Miami (Florida) 4
5 Iowa 2
6 LSU 5
7 Cincinnati 2
8 Florida 2
9 Southern Cal 7
10 Oregon 2
11 South Carolina 4
12 Auburn 6
13 Houston 11
14 Oklahoma State 1
15 Brigham Young 2
16 Texas 3
17 Wisconsin
18 South Florida 5
19 Georgia 5
20 TCU 4
21 Michigan 11
22 Mississippi
23 Ohio State 1
24 Georgia Tech 4
25 Boston College
Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: UCLA (#9), Missouri (#21), California (#25).

If I did something profoundly stupid please let me know as the official ballot will be built either tomorrow or wednesday morning.
