BlogPoll Week 13 Preliminary: Who's #2?

Steve Dykes

We have a logjam all of a sudden. And behind Notre Dame of all teams. Who you got?

You know the drill. I turn in a final ballot in the morning. If you don't want it to be this, give me your thoughts and/or arguments.

1. Notre Dame

By themselves in group one despite the fact that they'd be underdogs to everyone in the top ten.

2. Alabama

3. Oregon

4. Kansas State

5. Florida State

6. Georgia

7. Florida

All the one-loss teams! I oppose spiking Kansas State on the grounds that they've done a lot of impressive things, and it's not like they're the only team with a blowout loss (Georgia) or bizarre loss (Florida State). We'll find out a lot this weekend about how FSU/Florida/Georgia should be ordered.

8. LSU

9. Texas A&M

10. Stanford

11. South Carolina

12. Oregon State

13. Oklahoma

14. UCLA

Two loss teams with decent wins! You can make an argument for A&M over LSU despite head-to-head because of common opponent of Alabama, but given that the head-to-head was in College Station, I lean Tigers. Stanford and South Carolina are just about a tossup in my mind. Stanford has a worse loss but a better win.

15. Clemson

16. Texas

17. Oklahoma State

18. Nebraska

These teams are all kinda okay, right?

19. Louisville

20. Utah State

21. Arizona

22. NIU

23. Michigan

24. Louisiana Tech

25. San Jose State

Consideration pile: Kent State, Rutgers, USC, Washington, Texas Tech, Mississippi State, Ball State, Arkansas State, Wisconsin

Worth noting that the WAC has three teams in this ballot, which is more than the Big Ten (2), ACC (2), Big East (1), and Mountain West (0). I'm sure glad the MWC stole all the good teams from the WAC.
