Week 6 BlogPoll Ballot

As you'll notice, the BlogPoll has now been picked up by CBS Sports. This means that my inability to properly rank teams is one step closer to legitimacy!

Rank Team Delta

2 Missouri 1
3 Alabama 1
4 Texas 1

19 Auburn 7
20 Oklahoma State 3
21 North Carolina 4
22 Virginia Tech 2
23 California 3
24 Wake Forest 2
25 Oregon 5
Dropped Out: Fresno State (#19), Connecticut (#21)
On the Radar: Kentucky, Fresno State, UConn, Tulsa, Northwestern, Pitt, Ball State, Michigan State, Florida State, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Illinois

Justifications (or at least the best I can do):
  • No arguments for anyone other than Oklahoma at No. 1 for me.
  • Bama struggles + Missouri romp = New No. 2
  • Texas. Is. Good. I am NOT looking forward to playing this team in Austin and seeing what McCoy can do on the Mizzou defense.
  • Still not impressed by Texas Tech, but they're better than all the alternatives. I don't think we'll know anything about them until Oct. 25 against Kansas (and even that looks shaky, now). They will ROMP Nebraska and Texas A&M over the next two weeks.
  • The ballot starts to take a resume feel, with Vandy coming in at No. 9. They're certainly not the ninth-most talented team in the country, but they've earned the spot, at least for this week.
  • South Florida drops to No. 16. Kansas drops two spots for the Iowa State scare, and I just realized I only dropped Wisconsin one spot. Do the Badgers deserve to fall more?
  • Auburn continues to drop, coming in only one spot ahead of Oklahoma State.
  • 21 thru 25 is apparently my token Pac 10/ACC section of the ballot
