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:
- 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.
- 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?
- 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.
