|Last week's ballot|
I came thisclose to submitting a ballot with Virginia Tech at top as a form of protest but decided against it. For the moment. I'll have a more detailed response to Year2's ballot later today or perhaps tomorrow in the comments section of his post, which is here for Alabama fans who will note that you are now ranked No. 4 on our ballot. Nothing else gives me serious heartburn except maybe South Carolina dropping six spots after a win; I just think you should have to play more than five quarters of impressive football in the first six weeks to be ranked No. 1. Onward.
Ties I broke: Florida-Virginia Tech, Nebraska-Ohio State, LSU-Southern Cal-Cincinnati, Miami-Kansas, Georgia Tech-South Florida, Houston-Pittsburgh.
