An obvious problem that arose in the vaccuum left by my delinquency was the fall off of my public ballot disclosure. I write "public" because I mostly kept voting, although I sadly missed this week. Here's what the past three ballots have looked like:
Week of 10.23:
Week of 10.30:
Week of 11.06:
As you can see, the deltas are all effed up, so I apologize. I guess the biggest things to note:
- The most recent ballot reflects games through last Saturday, so for these purposes, Louisville was still undefeated.
- Texas made a big jump mostly because Colt McCoy is playing out of his mind; I am not sure if the SEC teams are that good or if they are just beating each other up; and no one else seems like an obvious choice for the top five, save for Cal, which remains there.
- Notre Dame has stayed in the same area for weeks because it plays no one and has lost to the only discernably good team it's played.
- I have been tempted to drop Michigan a number of times given how badly the offense has played in recent weeks, but I see no other team with a resume that argues for its ascendancy.
