As you can see, there has been some rejiggering of the final 5 or 6 teams.  Having defended my choice for UCLA, I found myself clearly stating that they were just barely hanging on in the poll...so I dropped them to 25.  Also, I think I was a bit over zealous on Miami (yes, that Miami) and Michigan State.  Nebraska moves up for now [editor's note: poll done before the dismissal of Castille was known].  I am still not very excited about Kansas, Florida State, or BYU - all of whom still get the boot in my poll. 

Lou Holtz has me all fired up, so I moved ND up a few notches to fill the void left by MSU, Miami, and UCLA.  North Carolina also benefits.  I'm on record as saying ND is going to end up with 9 or 10 wins whether we like it or not. 

Finally, I will make it known right now that any of the mid-majors that are currently ranked are one loss from finding themselves either at the Mr. Irrelevant spot of 25, or dropped altogether. 

The real-life conglomerated poll comes out today at noon ET and can be found here.
