Half the BlogPoll Ballot

Now that it's October and everyone has played at least a third of their games, I'm switching to a mostly resume-based approach. It's still a small sample size though, so I am going to make some allowances based on expectations. Some teams are clearly good but haven't beaten anyone yet (e.g. Stanford and Oregon), while some don't have a good win but it's not for lack of trying (e.g. Texas A&M and FSU).

The numbers next to teams are their AP Poll ranks. I think the AP Poll is the best of the mainline polls and provides a decent starting point. That's the only thing I use the AP ranks for though; I placed teams in positions based on my own reasoning.

Note: This table is too big to display properly in the narrow view. Switch to wide view or click the post title from the main page to see the whole thing left to right.
