BlogPoll huh? How very original..

Who exactly has Ball St. beaten that shows they should be in the top 25? I think some high school teams may have played a harder schedule so far.

Not sure I see why you'd drop USC a spot after a 44-10 win over Oregon. Not sure the Vandy win was 13 slots good to pass 'em.

I'm curious as to where you see UNC in the grand scheme of things. On the cusp of your 25? A ways to go? It's been a long time since UNC looked this good. You should give serious thought to bumping TCU or Cincinnati for 'em if you haven't already.

Glad to see you dropped Auburn out of your 25. They are embarrassing to watch. More proof that the preseason polls are worthless.

Dan Shanoff said...

Vandy was underrated (and they deserve their moment in the Top 10) -- and I really disliked putting USC in the Top 10 last week.

rk: Um...I am actually an official voter in THE BlogPoll. I didn't just make it up.

I also find it curious that Ohio State beat a ranked opponent on the road and couldn't move up a single spot. Man, the unjustified hate going against them at this point is pretty ridiculous.

Unknown said...

listen, i know you hate ohio state, but how can you not move them up a single spot after beating a ranked team on the road and moving florida up 3 spots after beating...arkansas?

if there's any reason for that other than bias, i'd love to hear it.

I too was going to mention Ohio State not moving, but figured it wouldn't mean much since I am a fan. Happy to see I wasn't the only one to find it absurd.
