ESPN.com took on the idea of which team should be ranked No. 2 today.
Guess whose case I took on. That's right. Toledo.
What was my case for Oregon?
Oregon should be No. 2 because it's got the best chance of ending up No. 1.
Based on what we've seen so far, you'd pick Oregon to beat Florida. You'd pick Oregon to beat Notre Dame. And you'd pick Oregon to beat Kansas State, which Wildcats coach Bill Snyder already did by dropping the Ducks from his schedule this fall, thereby creating a false perception Oregon wanted a weak nonconference schedule. No, that was Kansas State.
Some might even pick Oregon to beat Alabama.
