BRING ON THE CATS TOP 25 POLL: Week 2

In which Auburn and Oregon look back fondly on their national championship dreams of yesteryear as their poll position slides away dramatically.

It wasn't too many years ago that Auburn and Oregon met in the national championship game. Now, both have plummeted — the latter 15 spots and the former right out of the poll — after a fugly win and a decent road loss.

That's my only major observation this week. (A much less significant observation: Man, there are a lot of schools with feline mascots in this week's Bring On The Cats Top 25 Poll.)

You can catch up on the first two weeks of balloting action here. For the newest poll, scroll down:
