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 Five, 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 The bye only reminds us what we already knew about what's what and who's who 2 Oregon The separation between the Ducks and the Pac-11 grows exponentially 3 Kansas State Like watching a boa constrictor eat 4 South Carolina There may be a comedown for the Gamecocks, but it's harder to see where 5 West Virginia A great game tells us that Geno Smith could also help the defense 6 Florida Probably scored enough points to beat LSU twice 7 Notre Dame Convincing Miami to stop thinking well of itself was its own reward 8 Oklahoma Strong work at Texas Tech revivifies the Sooners 9 Florida State This probably represents their national place better than 2 10 Texas Horns only lose three places for losing so entertainingly 11 Ohio State Nine scores on Nebraska overwhelms all the anti Big-10 evidence 12 Louisiana State Tigers score like they're in the English Premier League 13 Georgia Religion has been gotten 14 Rutgers Slipped a couple of spots simply because of the chaos above them 15 Oregon State The Civil War may be the best game left on the Pac-12 schedule 16 Mississippi State Solid but not wonderful against Kentucky. This is about their acme. 17 Clemson Georgia Tech isn't exactly a high point of their list of wins 18 Iowa State Beating TCU at TCU ought to remove most of the doubters 19 Stanford A week ago, they couldn't score. This week they couldn't stop the other guy from scoring. 20 Southern California Utah was more work than the Trojans thought they should be 21 Louisville Having a bye left as much of an impression as the rest of their season 22 Louisiana Tech This is a couple of weeks late, but they got here 23 Cincinnati Louisville in three weeks, but they shouldn't sleep on Toledo 24 Ohio Still unbeaten, though Buffalo was a harder task than it should have been 25 Texas Christian Holding on by a very thin reed
