CCM Top 25 | The First Five And Then The Other Guys

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Yup, Alabama remains #1

There's a big shakedown going on...at the bottom of our polls. Here's what we know after five weeks of football. Right now there are five teams who legitimately deserve to be in the conversation for the BCS championship and then there's everyone else. We don't necessarily agree on the order but we do agree on the same five teams.

The bottom of our polls sees a lot more movement than the top. Rich bounced three teams this week, Notre Dame, Ole Miss and Wisconsin, while I bounced the Irish and Georgia Tech. I didn't punish Ole Miss for losing to the best team in the nation and (going back to the debacle at Arizona State) I only acknowledge one loss for Wisconsin and it came against the best team in the Big Ten.

Here's our Top 25. Let us know how you would have ranked them.
