Dropped Out: Kansas (#13), Arizona State (#20), Georgia Tech (#22), UCLA (#24), California (#25).
Yes, I rank USC No. 1, of course, but I have only one other Pac-10 team in the Top 25, near the bottom. East Carolina dropped; Ohio State should have dropped even more.
Even though the Pac-10 obviously sucks, I gave BYU "transitive" credit for UCLA's win over Tennessee.
I give South Florida huge credit for beating Kansas -- the Big 12 is obviously very strong this year.
(Unranking Kansas entirely for losing on the road to a team I rank in the Top 10 is hardly fair; I'm sure I will move them back in, likely at the expense of one of the mid-majors in the 20s.)
UPDATE: Orson, whose poll I always respect, has Penn State at No. 5. I know the PSU commenters would agree with him, but am I fair to be suspicious enough to keep them out of the Top 10?
