Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Oklahoma (#15), Nebraska (#16), Kansas (#19), South Florida (#22), Notre Dame (#23).

Here's the reasoning:

  • Florida looked terrible against Arkansas. Alabama didn't look terrible against South Carolina. Ergo, Alabama takes over the top spot.
  • I really didn't want to keep Texas in at #3, but they're still undefeated and still won.
  • I'm holding putting off Cincy in the top four spots until after they play West Virginia, unless somebody above them makes a mistake.
  • On Texas Tech: told you so.
  • This entire thing falls apart at about 18.
  • Pitt and WVU make their debuts, while Georgia returns. Pitt only has one loss; same for West Virginia.
  • Boston College isn't a top 25 caliber team, but neither are half the teams in the top 25.
  • I'm so torn on Oklahoma. They should be so good, but they've done nothing - literally - against any decent team. Same with Kansas. Right now, they're out.
