As much as it pains me to say it, Alabama is the best team in the country....and it's not close.  Florida is beatable especially now with Tebow's health in question.  Texas is in the same boat as Florida...very beatable.  LSU deserves to be in the top 20 right now without question but no where near the top 5 where they currently sit.  Where in the world is Auburn?  They are #10 in my poll and if you watch that offense you would rank them up there as well.  Sorry mid-majors, the top 5 belongs to BCS conference teams.  Try putting over half of the SEC or Big 12 on your schedule and see how you bowl victory every couple of years over a conference team doesn't add up to much in this poll.
