Fish don't fry in the kitchen. Beans don't burn on the grill. Took a whole lotta tryin', just to get up that hill.

THEY'RE NOT THE REAL POLL. The College Football Playoff Committee will again release the second poll of the season Tuesday evening. Here is the Amway Coaches Poll and a link to the newly released AP Poll.

AP Coaches
1 Clemson (31) Ohio State (34)
2 Ohio St (26) Clemson (21)
3 Alabama (2) Baylor (5)
4 Baylor (2) Alabama (3)
5 Oklahoma St Oklahoma St
6 Notre Dame Notre Dame
7 Stanford Stanford
8 Iowa Iowa
10 Utah Florida
11 Florida Oklahoma
12 Oklahoma TCU
13 TCU Utah
14 Michigan St Michigan State
15 Michigan Michigan
16 Houston Houston
17 North Carolina North Carolina
18 UCLA Florida State
19 Florida St UCLA
20 Miss St Miss State
21 Temple Temple
22 Navy Wisconsin
23 Wisconsin Navy
24 Northwestern Northwestern
25 Memphis Memphis

IOWA IS STILL BEHIND STANFORD. Here's where the committee got their first release right as Iowa is ahead of Stanford at #9. The Committee also had Northwestern #19 in their initial poll and the Cats should move up with losses to SEC teams in front of them. The Cats could climb as high at #16 in the poll that really matters. Also, Wisconsin was left out of the first release and should enter this week in the late 20s. Northwestern and Wisconsin still play this month but both, baring a loss (Wisconsin has NW and Minnesota, jNW has Purdue, Wisconsin and Illinois) they both could end the season in the Top 25 and quality road wins for our Iowa Hawkeyes.

That's six Big Ten teams in the CFP Top 25 (we assume) and three from each division. The West currently has the advantage in cross-over meetings 6-5 with three more meetings on the horizon. A split looks likely. Iowa hosts Minnesota this Saturday night in Kinnick Stadium. Minnesota is not ranked nor should they be anytime soon. #FreeFloyd
