Real life has been interfering in all sorts of nasty ways recently, so I don't have the time to go into a discussion on the blogpoll as much as I'd like. But I did take the comments on the draft onboard and made some modifications to the final ballot:
|Last week's ballot|
- Cincinnati Up It's obvious that their season goes beyond the norm. Winning games with # of play deficits in the 2:1 range just doesn't happen often.
- TCU Down Like I said before, I have no problem with them up at #4, but I can understand the argument. They're ticked down and awaiting BYU.
- PSU Down Big numbers against weak teams is usually a pretty good sign, but it never feels good to base a team's strength on that. So they get to wait until they play somebody else.
- Texas Tech Up I feel they're at least a more dangerous team to face than Central Michigan, South Carolina, and Idaho, so up they go. They're just so schizophrenic this year, though.
If I counted it right, the total delta on the ballot is 98, which is a shade higher than I expected. Not bad, though.
And as always, thanks again for the feedback.
