SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

Thoughts after the jump

- First and foremost, Mchigan drops to 21 in this weeks BlogPoll rankings. I guess beating Air Force by less than a touchdown isn't a good look for your national reputation.

In all seriousness, Michigan has a long road back into the nation's good graces after a week one flop against Alabama. It doesn't matter how good Bama is in the long run, all people are going to see this season is the team that got dismantled on the first Saturday of the season. Fair or no, MIchigan had its chance to make a statement and failed miserably.

- Speaking of Bama, the Tide haven't budged from the top spot, even with LSU putting together an impressive win against Washington. No matter what the nation thinks of Michigan, it is enough to keep the Tide ranked high on the basis of that win. Let's hear it for small victories.

- In the four to seven range, doesn't it feel like Georgia will be the one to last the longest? The Dawgs don't really play anyone of consequence in the SEC -- missing Bama and LSU will do that to your schedule -- while FSU and Oklahoma annually put together at least one horribly disappointing loss, and Oregon has to survive the Pac-12. Could the Dawgs end up three or four by the SEC title game? How far will the subsequently drop when Bama/LSU beats them by 30 in the Georgia Dome?

- West Virginia comes in for the other inexplicable drop in the polls. Holgorsen will have his revenge.

- Ohio State got a first place vote after beating UCF and Miami (OH). That is all.

- Kansas State benefits from people who apparently don't remember that Miami is terrible.

- I can't wait until people start selling on UCLA.

- Arizona is two spots behind Michigan on the basis of an Oklahoma State win that was overvalued on the basis of OK St beating up on an all-time weak FCS team.
