    Answers to my own questions:

    1. Poll:
    1. Alabama; 2. Oregon; 3. Ohio State; 4. South Carolina; 5. Stanford; 6. Clemson; 7. Florida; 8. Louisville; 9. Texas A&M; 10. LSU

    2. Miami: Probably the biggest hindrance to Miami has been Donna Shalala's academic standard rule. No athletes admitted without a 2.5 GPA. While that might have done wonders for the overall academic performance and ensured a higher team GPA, it has cost the Canes players that it used to get who are now going to Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Ohio State, etc. If the Canes get a hammer of a probation from the NCAA that might seal their fate forever. If not, they could get back into the national picture but it will be difficult.

    3. Getting the win and getting out with no serious injuries was what was most important in game one.
