Every week, our Senior Decider votes in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, which of course makes all other opinions both superfluous and valueless (hey, dont say you never get your moneys worth here).

So here, after Week Seven, is the world of college football, whether you like it or not. And if you dont, theres a new one next week you might like better.

1 Alabama Yeah, yeah, yeah. Blah, blah, blah. 2 Oregon If you just took first halves, an easy No. 1. Second halves, they'd be 63rd. 3 Kansas State Taught West Virginia a valuable lesson about moving costs. 4 Florida Edged South Carolina by almost five scores. 5 Oklahoma Kansas remains un-good. 6 Florida State At Miami is a good win. A very good win. 7 Louisiana State Texas A&M gave the Tigers all they could eat, but the Tigers ate all they needed. 8 Notre Dame The wins are nice, the opponents strong, the margins unsettling. 9 Oregon State Not their best game, but good enough. 10 Mississippi State The last gimme. 11 Rutgers They continue to decline the opportunity to be exposed. 12 Texas Tech Scored more in their overtime than Notre Dame did all day. 13 Southern California They're not back yet, but they can see it from where they're standing. 14 Georgia Kentucky by five? This is not an inspirational moment. 15 Clemson Virginia Tech must not be very Virginia Tech this year. 16 Ohio State Purdue in overtime, plus a catastrophic injury doesn't make anyone in Columbus happy. 17 South Carolina Quite the comeuppance for the Ol' Ball Coach. 18 Louisville Barely beat South Florida. 19 Texas A&M Doesn't deserve to drop after performance against LSU. 20 Toledo Second-best team in the state maybe? 21 Ohio Or is it these guys, who were off this week? 22 Boise State Quietly winning since early stumble. 23 Northern Illinois One loss, to Iowa. You make room for that. 24 Louisiana Tech 70 against Idaho is probably running it up, but sometimes it can't be helped. 25 Cincinnati This could have been lots of teams (Tulsa, West Virginia), but Toledo loss is no shame.
