Week 2 Notes:

South Carolina, Texas, Notre Dame, Florida Dumped in Week 2

Last week losers of note were South Carolina (dumped by Georgia, 41-30), Texas (a 40-21 loser to BYU), Notre Dame (41-30 losers at Michigan), Florida (beaten, 21-16, at Miami) and Cincinnati (45-17 by Illinois).

The common thread in four of these games (excepting the Florida-Miami game) is 40 or more points scored by the opposition, signifying a sereious lack of effort or ability on defense. A good question would be which defense is really the worst of these, leaving out Cincinnati, since they would be the obvious choice.

It could be Texas, but Notre Dame and South Carolina were both torched pretty well. An assumption could be made that the Longhorns won't be revisiting the Top 25 rankings here at Downtown Magazine or in any other national poll for the remainder of the season, since the Big 12 is not very mighty this season and a few upcoming opponents (Oklahoma, Texas Tech, TCU, Baylor, Oklahoma State) will likely test the Texas defense even further.

With spots 8, 13, 15 and 17 vacated, a number of teams moved up in the rankings with wins. LSU gained a position - from 10 to 9 - with their lopsided 56-17 romp over UAB, while Georgia improved by two spots, and Baylor moved up three spots to occupy #13, with a 70-13 win over Buffalo.

Teams now taking spots 14-20 each improved by four spots over last week, and the bottom five are now taken - in order - by Miami, Nebraska, Arizona, Fresno State and Illinois, all 2-0.

#1 Oregon proved to be as good or better than advertised, wiping out Virginia after a long trek East for the Ducks, 59-10. Virginia was itself an upset winner over BYU in week 1, and should not be looked upon as a soft spot in the Oregon schedule. They are capable of some upsets in the ACC.

Speaking of the ACC, #2 Clemson impressed on both sides of the ball, smashing SC State, 52-13, The Tigers get a week off, but won't have it so easy when they travel to NC State for their next game, Thursday, September 19.

#3 Alabama was idle, but #4 Ohio State looked vastly improved over their first game, especially on defense, abusing San Deigo State, 42-7.

#5 Louisville had no problem disposing of Eastern Kentucky, 44-7. The Cardinals may run the table in the watery American Athletic conference and may end up playing for the national championship if all the cards line up correctly, but they'll need help to get the numbers from the BCS.
