Arkansas is ok. I've seen them twice, including their big ooc win vs Tx A&M and haven't seen anything that separates them from the big group of teams in the middle. Not saying they don't deserve to be ranked (keeping in mind that I think the polls are worthless crap), but I feel perfectly comfortable in saying there's nothing about them that stands out vs 20-30 other teams in the country.

Oregon is a good win. I was referring more to their conference opponents in that particular post, but Oregon is a decent home win. Having seen Oregon, they can't defend any part of the field, but they are a potent offense. I'd probably say they were a little better than Arkansas on a neutral field.
