As with last week's ballot, this is just a starting point. Make your comments/critiques below and I'll revise mid-week.
10. Notre Dame
13. VA Tech
23. Boise St
The most significant change: Yes, I dropped still-unbeaten
This is a great example of not succumbing to that traditional pollsters (media, coach) symptom of INERTIA – moving a team up or down (or staying put) based on the previous week's poll.
Each week should be an entirely new evaluation, taking into consideration the entire body of work, revised with the latest.
(I should credit the media writers in the AP: They dropped UGA from 9 to 10. It's not as extreme as me, but at least they did SOMETHING.)
Next week's BCS impact games:
4. Georgia Tech at VA Tech
Comment question: Who do I have too high? Too low? Anyone outside the Top 25 who should have made my 20-25 range?-- D.S.
