Demerit: It’s late, I know.

Movers: Boise State find themselves ranked inside the top three for the first time ever on my ballot.  They won the most hyped game of the opening weekend against a conference contender, and it was essentially a road game.  It seems like they do just enough to win these big games while their opponent always plays below their potential.  I suppose I need to give BSU some credit for that.

Is there any team that answered any lingering more resoundingly than Oregon?  

Just like Oklahoma, Florida, and Texas, the Ducks had to replace a high-quality starter under center. All four teams wondered what their offenses were going to look like.

While the rest of the group struggled with everything from snapping the ball to completing more than 50 percent of their passes, Oregon took it easy on New Mexico while scoring 72 points.  It may have been against the Lobos, but it was still more impressive than almost anyone else.

You could make an argument that TCU should make a leap commensurate with Boise’s for their win over Oregon State.  I would listen.  Then again, who cares?  It’s Week two.

Sliders: Why can’t Florida move the ball on offense?  Does Texas have a running backs coach?  Has Utah State ever scored against an Oklahoma caliber opponent before?  Each of these squads could plummet out the Top 10 without too much debate based on last week’s performances against totally overmatched opponents.

After that, the rest of this list is basically arbitrary.  We have very little to go on at this point.
