College Football Rankings Week 2 2011

College Football Rankings Week 2 2011College Football Rankings Week 2 2011, The 2011 college football season is underway, which means that the SB Nation College Football BlogPoll will be a weekly column in the BSR. I will represent our site again this year and the publication of my rankings every Tuesday morning with some thoughts on what happened during the weekend. Below is my ranking after the first weekend of college football. Oklahoma continues to receiving the first and shut down Tulsa, 47-14, and Alabama is right behind them at No. 2. LSU went to No. 3 after driving the business prior to the No. 3 Oregon, who fell to No. 10. Feel free to throw your two cents and let me know how you think I did the rankings. Here are some observations I made after the first weekend of college football.

Les Miles is a hell of a coach

Being without a number of key players such as quarterback Jordan Jefferson from catcher Russell Shepard LSU seemed phase, since it uses four Oregon turnovers and rolled to a 40-27 victory. Miles will not allow their players to get caught in the nets of distraction after several players were suspended after allegedly being involved in a fight at a bar. Miles is a great motivator and is meticulous in his preparation for the games, which was especially evident in this game.

Do not dwell on the fact that no start was key. Instead, he developed a game plan that he knew he was going to duck the problem and it worked perfectly. Miles just always seems to be something up his sleeve. He always gives his team a chance to win, even if they seem to be down and out. There are still plenty of games between now and the national championship, but if Miles can continue preparing his team week after week, as he did last Saturday, will be in good shape come December.

Kellen Moore is the best quarterback in college football

No matter who plays against him, where he plays against them or people watching, Kellen Moore earns only. He showed that again last Saturday while driving his Broncos to a 35-21 victory against a very good opponent in Georgia. Moore threw for 261 yards and three touchdowns, giving him 102 in his already illustrious college career. It is the third consecutive year Moore and his team has beaten a marquee opponent to start the season (Oregon, Virginia Tech and now Georgia). It was the first time in the history of Boise State, however, that have defeated a team from the SEC. It’s just another notch in the belt of Moore, however.

In reaching this season, there were some questions about how Moore would just after seeing his two best receivers, Austin Pettis and Titus Young, collected in the second and third, respectively, of the draft this year in the NFL. He answered questions Saturday night loud and clear as he crushed the defense of Georgia and is connected to three different receivers for touchdowns. Moore was top-rated college football last season and main season passer Heisman Trophy contender. And if he keeps playing like he did against Georgia, it is clear that handling the trophy at the end of the season.

Virginia Tech learned lesson from the start of last season

After starting 0-2 last seasons, including a season-opening loss to Boise State and a home defeat to shame James Madison, Virginia Tech was ready to open this year. The Hokies wasted no time in putting his opponent away FCS, Appalachian State. Junior rider David Wilson scored on a 20-yarder in the game the Hokies first offensive scrimmage only 47 seconds into the game. The Hokies do not look back from there. Were 17-0 after one quarter and 38-0 at halftime en route to a 66-13-blowout victory? It was the second most points scored by the Hokies in the era of Frank Beamer.

Virginia Tech dominated the Mountaineers in all aspects of the game and remains one of the best teams on the CME to only 293 total yards of offense and 13 points. It was a great start for defensive coordinator Bud Foster and his unit after a mediocre 2010 season. Sophomore quarterback Logan Thomas looked good in his first game as quarterback of technology, throwing two touchdown passes and no interceptions. Game of the Hokies’ running back seemed to be one of its strengths after thrashing the Mountaineers to 256 yards.
