College Football Rankings 2011: Stanford Ranked Fifth In Blogpoll

Sports writers all throughout SB Nation appear to be a little bit more enthusiastic about the Stanford Cardinal than traditional media. The Cardinal stayed at 6th in the AP/USA Today polls, and they stayed at 5th in the Blogpoll. There probably won't be much change until Stanford loses or teams above them lose, but at the moment Andrew Luck's team seems to be the class of the conference.

Stanford received one first place vote from Brian Cook of MgoBlog, founder of the Blogpoll. Brian has had the Cardinal ranked number one since the start of the season based on the way they blew through the Pac-10 the last two months of the 2010 regular season and the array of star power they brought back. Brian probably hasn't watched much Stanford football yet, but they haven't been quite as consistent as he probably thought they would be. It's probably why he stands alone in his number one ranking of the Cardinal.
