Blogpoll Rountable #2

A little late, but better late than never. The questions, from Ciskie:

1. What team best met your overall expectations of them in their opener?

Zeke: Not be a homer, but I think Iíd think it would be the Buckeyes. I think we (MotSaG) were able to pretty much predict the how the game would unfold (except my prediction was backwards, OSU dominated the first half). Explosive offense (the score could have been a lot more lop-sided) and a defense that is still trying to shore up a few things.

2. What team jumped off the map and surprised you the most? (Bonus points to anyone who can make an argument for someone besides Tennessee.)

Zeke: In my mind anyone who attempts to make an argument against the Tennessee / Cal game is off their rocker. This was the swing game of the college football weekend. Maybe Cal is not very good, but after watching about half of that game I thought Tennessee looked much better than advertised.

3. What team best moved themselves into a position to surprisingly contend for a national title?

Sylvester-Yon Rambo: Southern California. It may not be a surprise to some, but after losing all they have to the NFL and all their off the field problems. Not many are picking them to make it back. But with a very weak Pac 10 league and even weaker non-confrence schedule (Notre Dame is way overrated) they have the easiest path now to go undefeated again.

sportsMonkey: Oklahoma. Maybe writing them off after Bomar’s troubles was premature. Their season really boils down to Texas and Texas Tech.
