ATQ Blogpoll: TCU and BSU make their early cases

New, 112 comments

With week one in the books, TCU and Boise State are leading my blogpoll ballot. Both had good games against solid opponents. However, in the end I went with TCU simply because they handled their game with much more ease. While the score in TCU's game didn't get out of control, they dominated the box score. Boise State had a very good game as well, but was not nearly as impressive. Their defense looked overmatched for long stretches, but they got it done at the end of the day, with big plays from the QB position. They have probably the best QB in the nation, and they'd be in any game they played because of him.

After that, it's a bit of a crapshoot. Being the first week, a lot of the results will be a bit skewed because all we have to look at is one game, and I'm doing my best to look at resume as much as possible. Alabama and Ohio State both did what they needed to do, dominating weaker opponents. Oregon jumps up on it's thrashing of possibly the worst team in D-1A. Arizona makes a significant leap going on the road against a competent Toledo team and showing that it will be a good team on both sides of the ball.

I dropped Florida and Oklahoma because both looked like utter garbage.
