My Top 25 College Football Teams

If you sliced one of my arteries, the blood that flowed would be the color of burnt orange. I am a diehard Texas Longhorn fan and no one was more excited watching that nationally televised game Sunday night as I. But, at the same time, I can't help but wonder about a Texas defense that gave up 47 points at home, squandered a 17-point lead and never did stop Notre Dame's running game or its screen passes. I also remember last October when Texas achieved another "signature" win, an upset victory of Oklahoma and I'm still crushed about how last season turned out. Not good. So unlike just about everyone else who prepares one of these polls, I'm not ready yet to bless the Longhorns as a top 25 team. I want to see a few more victories first, especially some more convincing ones.
