Blog Poll v9.2 - Week 8

Here is my final ballot for Week 8.

Cal and Wake were dropped because I errored in ranking them to begin with.  I am also buying the argument that Texas should be #1.  Generally I'm stubborn and if I rank a team #1 and they win I find it hard to move them out of that spot.  But beating OU and Mizz in consecutive weeks is more than anybody else has done this year.  Any other changes are just slight adjustments within a spot or two.

 

Rank Team Delta
1 Texas 1
2 Alabama 1
3 Penn State --
4 Oklahoma --
5 Southern Cal --
6 Georgia 1
7 Florida 1
8 Ohio State --
9 Texas Tech --
10 LSU --
11 Oklahoma State 3
12 South Florida 4
13 Missouri 2
14 Kansas 1
15 Pittsburgh 9
16 Boise State 2
17 Utah --
18 Florida State 8
19 TCU 7
20 Minnesota 3
21 Georgia Tech 5
22 Northwestern 4
23 Ball State 2
24 Georgia Tech 2
25 Boston College 1

 

Dropped Out: Brigham Young (#12), Virginia Tech (#15), Wake Forest (#19), California (#20), Michigan State (#21), North Carolina (#22).

Teams on my radar include

Oregon - tough schedule 5-2 record
Tulsa - undefeated and probably should be ranked
Arizona - 5-2 and facing USC, they are my TBD team this week

Could move back in with a win to follow up last week's loss

Michigan State - @Michigan
Virginia Tech - Florida St
North Carolina - Boston College
BYU (maybe) - UNLV

This is my final ballot for this week.  Hopefully we'll get some clarification this week with some key games like

Tex Tech vs. Kansas
Virginia Tech vs. Florida St
Boston College vs. North Carolina
