BSU ahead of TCU/Oregon in all but BCS: Poll watch (Week 9)

It's breakfast time and the Oregon Ducks are still partying in Autzen.

The Intern is in hiatus this week and has relectantly given his Poll Watch powers over to someone who can "bring it."

There was nothing significantly surprising this college weekend, unless you were the rest of the nation and believed all the USC hype, or a slit-writing 3rd Quarter Iowa fan who didn't wait to see bi-polar Stanzi.  Two of the "gimme" three pummelled their opponents, and didn't need half as many flags to help them.  Iowa "played-down" to Indiana for 3 quarters, then added the 12th man in the 4th quarter to pull past the Hoosiers. TCU, Boise, LSU, and Cincinnati easily took care of their opponents.


Did anyone else want to ask Mark May, "And what has Oklahoma done?"

 

Which brings us to poll watch topic of the day: Oregon and Boise.  The folks at AtQ have already forgotten the respect Boise earned on opening weekend.  It's a great thing Chip Kelly hasn't.  He specifically gave the Broncos and Coach Peterson credit to the Gameday Crew (credit edited out by our favorite 4-lettered word).  Meanwhile, Oregon's big win over USC should also help Boise.

  • Does Oregon make the 4-spot leap over Boise?
  • Will TCU hold it's lead over Boise in the BCS?
  • Will Iowa drop for it's sub-par successes?
