- Ignore the deltas. This ballot was filled from scratch with zero regard for the Week 1 one ballot. Thus, the "you dropped X team Y spots for beating team Z [score] to [score]???" argument isn't really a factor.
Simple but arbitrary rule: No 0-1 teams inside the top 20. Do I think Oregon St. or UNC end up being Top 20 teams? Perhaps, but I'm not going to rank a winless team inside the Top 20 this week out of principle. Virginia Tech stays on the ballot as credit for opening the season with a Top 10 opponent.
- UPDATE: Popular demand calls for Virginia Tech to move up. The amended ballot moves VT to No. 17.
Thoughts? Too down on the Big 12? Do a couple of teams need to go to make room for Georgia, WVU, Auburn, BYU, etc?
