The Perfect College Football Poll...

Is it just me or does the idea that you "only" need to be one of four great teams in college football mean that you stop trying to be "the best" and merely try to be "good enough"? It's a repugnant ideology, if this is the case, but everything I've seen from this weekend reminds me of a bowler who is just gliding along, shucking balls towards the center of the lane in a devil-may-care way, assuming he'll great enough strikes from pure muscle reflex that he'll make it the next round.

All in all, things went to plan as USM goes home with a paycheck and Alabama goes home with another win and no significant injuries without having to show next week's opponent much of the playbook.
