BlogPoll Top 25, Week 6: The Final

So there was a rather obvious last-minute change at the top of the polls here; I had given plenty of thought in either direction, but I think I like Alabama's quality of victory just a bit more than LSU's. I mean, it's close, but I think I like the Florida / Arkansas combination of victories just a little bit more than the Oregon / West Virginia combination. Both wins were equally dominating, I think - Alabama's domination just looks a little bit different than LSU's.

Aside from that, I can't complain too much about the end results. Lots of movement this week, far more so than last week, but I think that'll be the case with a lot of ballots. And yeah, Illinois is still the odd jumper of the lot. I'm not sure I like that either, but absent options I'm not really sure what else to do, so I'll just roll with it.

I'm hoping that the sheet is ready to roll by next week, which should hopefully help us out a bit. Incidentally, if anyone knows of a good site online that has easily accessible margin of victory values, that'd be incredibly useful. I'm trying to avoid manual entry (and even if it's accumulated, that's fine; I think we want accumulated), and tabular data scraping would be much, much preferred.
