The Daily Gopher Blog Poll - Week 5 ballot

Below is my initial ballot. I'm tempted to move LSU up to #2 but it is hard to punish Bama when they beat a ranked team as well, so I'll try not to be knee-jerk and fall in love with LSU too early.

I moved Wisconsin up mostly because Stanford did not play and partially because I'm sold on the Badgers this year. Hopefully if I get on the Badger bandwagon, they'll implode.

At the bottom, I finally gave in and ranked Michigan. Every year about this time I feel like I don't have a choice but to rank them, then they go and stink up the Big Ten. I'd be OK with that again.

Unless I hear a number of complaints or some sound reasoning why I need to make a change, this will be my final ballot.
