Blogpoll Ballot: Week 2

EUGENE OR - SEPTEMBER 04: Running back Kenjon Barner #24 of the Oregon Ducks is mobbed in the endzone by his teammates after scoring a touchdown in the second quarter of the game against the New Mexico Lobos at Autzen Stadium on September 4 2010 in Eugene Oregon. Barner had 225 total yards and 5 touchdowns as Oregon won the game 72-0. (Photo by Steve Dykes/Getty Images)

Without further ado:

This week's full poll and awards, here.

As always, my ballot is a seat-of-the-pants mixture between resume and power rankings.  Hence, Boise gets the top spot because they had the best win this week; if Alabama beats Penn State this weekend, I'd expect Boise's current ranking to be a one-week-only thing.  TCU makes a similarly big leap by beating Oregon State, a top-25 team.

Elsewhere:

  • Oregon makes a huge jump because, uh, that's what happens when you win 72-0.  Having seen bits and pieces of that game, I think I underrated them at the start of the year.  We'll know more after they play Tennessee this week.
  • VT doesn't lose much ground, and they shouldn't lose much when losing by only three points to the now-#1 team.
  • In retrospect, Texas probably didn't deserve to fall 5 spots, but they looked pretty shaky at times on Saturday.  Florida and USC, conversely, looked awful on Saturday and deserve their respective falls.
  • Very impressed by FSU, Georgia, and Arizona; they were the other big jumps.
  • Michigan slides in at #25.  UConn played terribly but it'd be foolish to think that Michigan didn't have a whole lot to do with that.

So, who impressed/disappointed you in the first weekend?  Did I screw anything up?  (More than I usually do?)
