Yes, I know, the BlogPoll ballot is supposed to be posted by Monday morning. But I was not alone this week -- cough cough. In any case, here's your humble correspondents portion of things. This week, power-polling counts twice and resume counts once, and then I adjust things that don't make sense to me.
2 Ohio State
Alabama and Ohio State give no reason to drop them in their first games against BCS AQ teams. Yes, I have Oregon at No. 3. That's because they kind of looked like a team that allowed a midmajor to hang around for the first half until annihilating them afterward. They were playing Tennessee. Michigan is now No. 4 in part because they are the one of the only teams I'm aware of that has played and defeated two AQ teams. TCU is the midmajor to beat after Virginia Tech lost by a larger margin to James Madison than to Boise State, but moves down because of Oregon and Michigan.
10 Boise State
Okay, now I'm willing to admit that I might have been wrong about Oklahoma after they have one of the most impressive wins of the year. Florida wasn't that bad against a South Florida team that is still in an AQ conference. We can question whether that should be the case, but until further notice it is so. Arizona and Nebraska lose ground because of teams moving ahead of them. Boise State ... well, that's what happens when you have a three-game season.
14 South Carolina
Wisconsin and Arkansas, please play someone if you want to be ranked anywhere near the Top 10, mkay? I moved South Carolina down from where the Gamecocks were in the first draft, both because I'm not sold on them being a Top 10 team yet and we count as a South Carolina voter for purposes of the CK award. Given South Carolina's record of disappearing against FCS teams and with Furman this weekend, I'm not taking any chances. LSU is ... I don't even know what LSU is anymore, but they have defeated two AQ teams, so there we have it.
20 Oklahoma State
Utah and Stanford have looked decent, Texas hasn't defeated anyone of any consequence, Auburn didn't really impress me with the Mississippi State game and Oklahoma State is probably not going to be here for long.
21 Air Force
24 Fresno State
Several of these teams are here simply because (again) they've actually played someone. A few of them will almost certainly not be ranked at the end of the season -- there are several teams that are probably good but just haven't proven it yet -- and some of them will stay. So I wouldn't get too excited one way or the other about the presence of any of them.
