BlogPoll Ballot: Feeling Lazy?

I'm going to cop to being a little bit lazy with my BlogPoll ballot this week. Not altogether, don't even pay attention to the results lazy. But I'm going to basically move teams based on where they were before this past weekend and what happened in said weekend.

Why? Mainly because not that much changed. Sure, Bama drops a touch for losing to Florida, Missouri has to move down for getting waxed by Oklahoma, etc. But with so few teams playing, there's really not the reason to go through the ballot and start over from scratch. I will do that at the conclusion of bowl season.

Also, I know it's late. We had a hiccup in the system on Sunday and I haven't had time to get it done until now. That, too, will change after the bowls, and you can all tell me how stupid I am. Which you're pretty much free to do this time; it just won't change anything.

Dropped Out: Ball State (#18).

Most of this should be pretty self-explanatory. Alabama has the best loss of any team in the country this year, so I kept them in the Top 4. They weren't No. 2 because they probably have the weakest schedule of the Top 4, but not enough to outweigh other teams' losses to teams that are, yes, ranked, but not nearly as good as Florida (cough cough to Iowa, cough cough to Oregon State). Virginia Tech -- why not? It is, after all, the ACC. I flipped Oregon and Oregon State, for now, but reserve the right to switch them back after the bowl games.

I must admit, I didn't watch much football on Saturday, the result of: (a) getting four hours of sleep and then taking the LSAT, which is not a combination I'd recommend; (b) family obligations; (c) upheaval at work. I did see at least some of Louisville-Rutgers, Boston College-Virginia Tech, Alabama-Florida and Missouri-Oklahoma.
