Bohls: On my top 25 ballot, Oregon, Iowa make big leaps but Texas falls out

Arkansas running back A.J. Green runs for a touchdown to help seal the Razorbacks' dominant 40-21 win over Texas, which fell out of the AP top 25 poll.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Associated Press folks in charge of the top 25 poll annually remind us voters to be flexible. Be fluid. Don’t be afraid to make drastic changes in our ballots, especially early in the season.

So, fluid it is.

I bumped Oregon all the way up to No. 4 on my ballot this week after its colossal upset of Ohio State in Columbus of all places.

I moved Texas out of the poll altogether. The Longhorns looked inept against Arkansas and nothing like a top 25 team.

I advanced 2-0 Iowa all the way up to No. 8 after beating Iowa State in Ames after whipping Indiana in its opener.

I left North Carolina State off my ballot.

I put Arkansas on it.

I was thoroughly impressed with the now 2-0 Razorbacks. I stuck them at No. 23, not that I was totally shocked. I picked Arkansas to win the game, but not by that margin. I have Sam Pittman as my early national coach of the year, followed by the Hawkeyes’ Kirk Ferentz.

Arkansas just took it to Texas and dominated the entire game, which should give Longhorn Nation pause after the Horns’ impressive opening win over Louisiana.

After their narrow escapes on Saturday, I have concerns about Texas A&M and Notre Dame.

Here’s my top 25 ballot:

1. Alabama

2. Georgia

3. Oklahoma

4. Oregon

5. Clemson

6. Cincinnati

7. Penn State

8. Iowa

9. Ohio State

10. Texas A&M

11. Notre Dame

12. Virginia Tech

13. UCF

14. UCLA

15. Coastal Carolina

16. Florida

17. North Carolina

18. Kansas State

19. Stanford

20. BYU
