Last week's ballot


Dropped Out: Florida State (#18).


 - Holy hell, this thing is a mess.  Much like the AP, I'm having trouble identifying what the true top-10 should look like outside of Florida, Alabama, and Texas.   LSU gets bumped up because, uh, well, I don't really know...they're undefeated?  Same with Boise State and Cincinnati.  These are all teams that I would feel very comfortable slotting in the 8-12 range, but because of the vacancies left by Penn State, Cal, and Mississippi, there they are in the top 5.  The swing on this poll, as it stands now, is monstrous.  Any thoughts on the top 10?

 - The bottom ten may garner some attention as well, mostly because I'm a Michigan blog and I dropped Michigan after a win - but tell me - are you that confident about UM's chances against any of the teams listed ahead of them?

 - I am relatively kind to Penn State - will probably drop them a few more pegs now that I look at it.

 - This is a tough, tough ballot.  Any and all suggestions are more than welcome.
