Okay, Relax Y'all

I didn't expect people to get all worked up over a poll ballot in week 6, but I probably should have realized that it was coming. In recognition that it's probably too early in the season yet to go 100% on stats since some teams have only three (USF) or four (Florida, et. al.) games against I-A teams, I'm goingto do some more curating to my half of the ballot. Consider this morning's post a draft.

  1. Florida
  2. Alabama
  3. Virginia Tech
  4. Texas
  5. Iowa
  6. TCU
  7. LSU
  8. Oregon
  9. Ohio State
  10. Boise State
  11. Miami (FL)
  12. USC
  13. Notre Dame
  14. Nebraska
  15. Cincinnati
  16. Kansas
  17. BYU
  18. USF
  19. Pittsburgh
  20. South Carolina
  21. Penn State
  22. Oklahoma
  23. Auburn
  24. Georgia Tech
  25. Utah


  • Bama above VT, for obvious reasons.
  • Texas above Iowa, since Texas looks better on week-to-week basis.
  • LSU up to 7: shouldn't be penalized too much for losing to No. 1.
  • Miami up to 11: for some nice wins.
  • USC up to 12 and Oklahoma down to 22: in recognition of wins and losses.
  • South Carolina at 20; CMU out: SC is a better 5-1 team.

Any other complaints? If not, then this'll go final.
