Week one BlogPoll

I have submitted my top-25 and results should be posted tomorrow.

In the meantime, here is how I ranked 'em.

Rank Team Delta
1 Southern Cal --
2 Ohio State --
3 Florida 1
4 LSU 1
5 Georgia 2
6 Oklahoma --
7 Missouri 1
8 Auburn 1
9 Texas 1
10 West Virginia 3
11 Wisconsin --
12 Oregon 5
13 Kansas 3
14 Arizona State 1
15 Texas Tech 1
16 Utah 7
17 Alabama 9
18 South Florida 2
19 California 6
20 Brigham Young 2
21 Wake Forest --
22 Fresno State 2
23 Clemson 11
24 East Carolina 2
25 Virginia Tech 12
Dropped Out: Illinois (#19), Tennessee (#22).

I may be too high on Utah, but I think they deserve to shoot up in the rankings for defeating Michigan on the road. I dropped Georgia two spots because I wasn't as impressed with their win over an FCS team. This is why I also dropped BYU, Texas Tech and West Virginia.

Tennessee and Illinois dropped out of the rankings because of their losses, but I still am not ready to rank UCLA in the top-25 just yet, even though they did beat the Vols. East Carolina and Alabama both made this week's ballot, as they had impressive wins over ranked opponents, especially Alabama.

Clemson, losers to the Tide, fell 11 spots to 23rd, while I probably overrated Virginia Tech, who fell 12 spots in this week's ballot.

Anyway, there you have it, my ballot for week one. I didn't get a chance to ask for input because of yesterday being Labor Day, but hopefully I'm not too off in my choices.
