Some quick thoughts on the BlogPoll:
|Last week's ballot|
Dropped Out: Wisconsin (#17), Stanford (#19).
I'm not budging on Florida and Alabama- as I am pretty confident the winner of the SEC Championship game will go on to win the BCS title. In fact, I'm not sure I'd move the loser out of the number two spot.
Penn State stays behind Iowa- they're both at the same level obviously- but Iowa whipped them straight up. I was pretty charitable to the Tigers- I cannot in good conscience actually vote for Ole Miss- but I bet the Rebels would straight up beat most of the teams ranked 15 thru 25- and both Pitt and Cincinnati at a neutral venue.
Temple, Navy and Central Michigan are my salutes to the gritty mid-major programs. I don't know if they could beat, say, Nebraska- but it isn't like Nebraska going to travel, ever, to a place like Central Michigan to find out. Let them get some votes- it isn't like Nebraska is going to be hurting for a few ballots.
