Michigan State comes in at number 13 while LSU, Alabama and USC were bunched at the top of the poll. So what do you think? Too high? Too low? Also to note, Chris Petersen is a voter this year. How this already wasn't the case, I have no idea.
With Utah and TCU joining the AQ teams and Boise State replacing a lot of players, Dufresne doesn't have much hope for anyone crashing the BCS party this year. It's true that the non AQ elite have shrunk quite a bit in past years, but I kind of like that Boise State has lowered expectations this year. I think it helps to take the pressure off a bit. Of course, that only helps if it's still a successful season.
Somehow I missed that yesterday was the birthdays of former player and current Bear Shea McClellin plus our own Noel.Diggity. My apologies.
