Still, nobody can contest Oklahoma as number 1.
since polls are still absolutely meaningless at this stage of the season, i'd argue that if you're actually basing your ranking on who has proven themselves to be the best team against the best competition, i'd put 'Bama #1 with a bullet. not even a close second, they are the most accomplished team SO FAR.
but if you base it on who you think is the best team via eyeball test, # of All-Americans, margin of victory over thoroughly out-classed opponents, fanciest offense, how they finished last year, or coolest uniforms or whatever, then no, they deserve top 10, maybe even top 5, but not 1, 2, or 3.
i think USC, Oklahoma, and LSU are more talented, but i think Bama's better coached than all 3 (and God i hate admitting that) and would probably beat Oklahoma head-to-head but would need significant + turnover margins to beat the other two (sorry Sooner fans, i just ain't sold on them yet, and won't be until i see them beat a good defensive team for the first time in 5 years or so...)
