one could argue that the AP matters more, since they determine their own champion rather than just being part of a formula.

At this point it doesn't matter. The two teams in front of them play quality opponents this week. Alabama plays Penn State and ohio state plays Miami. If Alabama and ohio state win, they should be ranked higher than BSU. If they lose then they obviously wont any longer.

Possible, but I'm just taking it one game at a time. SMS shouldn't be an issue, but not sure what to say out of the UCF game. ISU could go either way.

There shouldn't be a single Big 10 team in the top 10, let alone 4 in the top 15.

That's a take based on perception and not reality. Have you seen Ohio State play? They won their bowl game and beat the team that a lot of people thought were top-5 material last year (Oregon). They're even better this year. Iowa only lost 4 or 5 starters off an 11-2 team that also won a BCS game.

Dude the Big 10 very well might be the best conference this year. I know I can tell you in week one the SEC and Big 12 looked extremely weak. Time will tell but just because OSU repeatedly fails in the big game doesn't necessarily mean the entire conference is shit. OSU craps their pants in big games usually because Jim Tressel plays overly conservative and shit ends up happening.

There is a ton of Big 10 hate around, and maybe rightfully so somewhat due to OSU's chokejobs but that conference repeatedly puts a ton of talent in the NFL and recruits well. The B10 performed pretty well in bowls last year too. I expect the Big 10 to have two BCS bowl teams w/ ease and probably 3 teams in the Top 10 at the end of the year.

I'm not sure we'll have 3 Top Tens...attrition tends to knock teams out. I think teams like Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, and even Northwestern (as we learned last year) often rise up and win games against the top 3.

OSU, yes. PSU, no--they're overranked, in my opinion, only because they're playing with a freshman QB. I would be extremely surprised if they looked decent against Alabama. I think they'll get clubbed.

Alabama, OU, Texas, Florida, Arkansas, TCU, Boise St, V Tech, USC, Oregon, LSU, North Carolina (preseason), Miami, G Tech, S Carolina would all be preseason favorites (probably top 2) to win the Big 10 if they were in that conference. The first 7 would absolutely be the odds on favorites to win it.
