Coaches in the USA Today poll, following advice from a Gallup survey they commissioned, wanted to make their final votes anonymous again starting next year.Thank goodness the governing lords blew the whistle and pronounced that idea unacceptable. The Bowl Championship Series was controversial enough without re-introducing such secrecy. I don't like transparency in my coffee but demand it in polls that help determine which schools play for something loosely resembling a national title.

Johns Hopkins isn't the only area Division III program with an untarnished record in 2014. Stevenson is 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Middle Atlantic Conference and earned votes in the latest American Football Coaches Association poll. It's the first time the program has won its first four games of the season, and the team has already matched single-season records in overall victories and league wins set last year. Considering that the Mustangs were 8-22 overall and 6-20 in the conference, the current run might be shocking to some, but not to coach Ed Hottle.

With back-to-back victories over Syracuse and Duke  - the teams that played in the NCAA title game last year - Maryland was the easy pick to be anointed the No. 1 team in almost every poll this week. But that ranking means little to coach John Tillman, who spent a considerable amount of time during his weekly conference call Tuesday morning downplaying the significance of the accolade for the Terps (4-0 overall, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). “I think most coaches would tell you that we don't want to be ranked No. 1,” he said.

Michigan might hold up Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times This may sound strange, given that it struggled at home with an FCS opponent, but the biggest surprise has to be Michigan. Almost everyone was predicting disaster for Rich Rodriguez in his third year, given the offseason problems and the fact his team lost seven of its last eight last year. Consider this: Central Michigan received points in the preseason coaches poll but not Michigan. So the fact the Wolverines are 22nd in this week's coaches poll has to be acknowledged.

The first Bowl Championship Series standings are out, and it's not what you think. While several experts last week predicted Boise State would debut at No. 1, a few key upsets over the weekend changed everything and pushed Oklahoma to the top spot. The Sooners check in with a BCS average of .9215, followed by Oregon at .8921 and Boise State at .8898. Ohio State was No. 1 in the Associated Press and coaches polls heading into last weekend's games, but a 31-18 pasting at Wisconsin dropped the Buckeyes (.5726)
