BlogPoll Week 6 Rankings Are Live

The week 6 BlogPoll College Football Rankings are live. The general look of the poll is similar to what it was last week, at least in the top 3 - LSU did have their lead cut into quite a bit, and not surprisingly the BlogPoll is looking at LSU and Alabama as 1A and 1B. Four other observations I caught on first glance:

  1. We're getting votes! No, really. We're effectively 39th (we may be tied for 38th or 37th; I didn't look through individual vote totals for all the teams around us), but that's not saying much - we have one vote apiece at 22, 23, 24, and 25. Amazingly, that's slightly worse than the Georgia Bulldogs votes go - one random guy is voting them at 17, although on second thought didn't we spend a while talking about his ballot a couple weeks ago? Maybe that was on EDSBS. I know his name is familiar, but this guy has been high on Georgia all season. I don't know what this means. Maybe it just means he's lazy. Anyway, the other two UGA voters have them at 25, so make of that what you will.
  2. Texas A&M fittingly drops out of the rankings, after being dominant in the first few weeks of the season. I guess Week 4 started the second half of the year?
  3. The Clemson Tigers were fast risers, but not as fast as the Auburn Tigers, who jumped into the poll, ahead of the South Carolina Gamecocks, so credit for the head-to-head victory and all that.
  4. It looks like the majority of the voters decided to give the Michigan Wolverines and the Texas Longhorns the benefit of the doubt, slotting them in at 11 and 12 respectively. I'm not sure I see that, but we've been 'round the bend with them before. For comparison's sake, Illinois comes in at 14.
