Last week's ballot

 

Dropped Out: Brigham Young (#16), Texas Tech (#18), Arkansas (#22), Nebraska (#25).
Games Watched: Michigan vs. Penn State (part), Michigan State vs. Iowa.

Lots of movement this week, including four new teams.  I might not even be in the running for the Numb Existence Award this time around . . .

  • Texas looked by far the best this weekend, so they're your new #1.  I have a very difficult time differentiating between the top three teams now that Alabama looked terrible on Saturday.
  • Likewise, Iowa and Cincinnati are awfully close in the next two positions.
  • I can't justify ranking Boise so highly anymore.  They've played nobody since Oregon (who look great now, FWIW), and won't play anyone else until their bowl game.  Shame.
  • Penn State looked damned impressive on Saturday.
  • Ohio State may be ranked too high.
  • Welcome Central Michigan and Notre Dame!  (Gross.)
