This Week's BlogPoll Top 25 Ballot

This week's BlogPoll Top 25 ballot shows me regressing -- or progressing -- to the conventional mean: Florida at No. 1, Alabama at No. 2, TCU at No. 3. Texas at No. 4, clearly behind those first three, but clearly ahead of Cincy at No. 5 and Boise State at No. 6. Everything after that is a jumbled mess of contradictions -- but I'm willing to connect Oregon State to Oregon in my Top 10 until we get a resolution to this year's Civil War, which will determine the Pac-10 champ.

Please help out with your comments and analysis; I'll change the ballot Monday per your input.

What exactly did you see from VaTech to rise them 5 spots? They were at risk of getting upset by a terrible Virginia team for most of the game and didn't pull away until the very end.

Dropping Cal 8 spots for not playing seems a bit harsh; this late in the season anyway. Cal, USC, and Stanford should be bunched together pretty tight.

Why did you drop Cal 8 spots when they didn't play, and raise Stanford 5 spots for beaten a mediocre Notre Dame team?
