Not buying Kansas State that high... at least not yet. Good game against the Sooners for sure... top 10 quality, maybe. But #3 seems like a desperate grab at picking some team that isn't in West or South. Notre Dame has played Navy, Purdue, Michigan State, and Michigan. Its a solid start but with the Big10 down this year, I don't think they have quite changed my mind about them yet... but they are close! Here's mine.
4. Florida State
5. South Carolina
9. Kansas State
10. West Virginia
Apparently I pretty much agree with MikeT!
Kansas State not only won at Oklahoma but also crushed Miami 52-13. And sure this isn't Miami from the early 2000's, but Miami is 3-1 with 2 ACC wins thus far this year. Collectively those are the two best wins any team has this year. Thus, plenty of reason to have them at #3 and frankly I wouldn't be surprised if the computers had them at 1 (right now). Now granted I do not believe Kansas State is better than some of the teams I have behind them, but based on the season thus far Kansas State is more than deserving of #3 at this point.
And it is absolutely ridiculous to have USC ahead of Stanford right now. Sure by the end of the year USC might have proven itself more worthy, but right now, totally and utterly ridiculous.
