Poll position

LSU is up to No. 2 in the coaches' poll and No. 3 in the AP poll.

There is sure to be some whining about the AP poll as Alabama jumped ahead of LSU to No. 2 and behind Oklahoma.

Look, I've got no problem at this point in the season with that ranking. Alabama has been impressive in wins over Clemson and Georgia. (I'm not really counting Arkansas, Tulane and Western Kentucky). LSU's most impressive win is at Alabama.

That being said, I still have my doubts about Alabama. I understand the Tide's strength is along both the offensive and defensive lines. But quarterback John Parker Wilson is probably playing over his head -- or at least his previous career performance. And in the course of a season, depth could be an issue.

The good thing for LSU is of the two teams in front of the Tigers, they'll get to play one during the regular season.
