I think 12 is a pretty fair spot for me right now!

 

Thanks voters!

 

Also, the top 3 are pretty close. It will be interesting to see them jockey in the coming weeks. TCU should be able to keep the spot barring a loss.

They have the best win in my mind (of the top 3). Clemson if they play like they did against SJSU moving forward though could leapfrog

Right, but TCU plays only good teams. OU has at least at trip to Auburn ahead of them. What does Clemson have? I wouldn't be surprised to see a bunch of teams jump them.

Hey a first place vote! Thanks to that person. I’ll try to justify it when I actually start playing games.

It's like 14-35 is so tightly bunched that a lot of them could be interchanged. A lot fluctuates more in the early weeks.

Polls are weird when most teams have only played 1 game. Things will settle out in a few weeks.
