Pac-10 Power Poll: Can cougs climb out of the cellar?

New, 3 comments

I'll just go ahead and answer that now: No. But we do have our first week with over 10 points in the history of the Power Poll. So that's something.

As always, individual votes after the jump. We'd like to recognize ASU's own House of Sparky for, along with me, not thinking that the Cougs are the worst team in the conference at the moment.

Still the best team in the country. Question is: will they have another Stanford-type breakdown this year?

Off week should only help the Bears, who get a shot to rebound next week against Colorado State.

 The Boise State Broncos are the best team in the Northwest. Ugh. Love the trick plays though.

 We all knew Georgia would handle the Sun Devils. What becomes interesting now is the matchup with Cal in two weeks.

 No news is good news for the Beavs, our highest-ranked team with a losing record.

 Was it an impressive win over UCLA, or is UCLA just that bad?

 Pac-10 sleeper? The Cardinal can start 2-1 in conference with a win over UW. I'll be pulling for them.

 I'm having a hard time remembering any season where all the excitement crashed and burned so quickly. We now know Tennessee is pretty bad.

 Still ranked above WSU? Yes, most likely because the game against BYU should still be going to OT.

We love us some Lobster, but how about the rushing game? Over 7 yards per carry for Tardy and Ivory on Saturday.

Tip of the hat to The Helmet Project for the helmets you see here.

Note: Remember that I put more weight into the previous week's games. In other words, I rank where the teams where they are at NOW, not where they are in terms of the whole season. -Grady
