Blogpoll Draft Ballot

You're going to start seeing solidifying throughout these polls now that we're really getting deep into conference play. There weren't too many upsets last week, but enough top-25 teams playing top-25 teams to cause a shift. 

Which helped teams on the outside looking in (like Utah). My poll isn't much different from last week's, which I'm fine with. 


Rank Team Delta
1 Florida
2 Texas
3 Alabama
4 Southern Cal 1
5 Virginia Tech 2
6 Cincinnati
7 Boise State 1
8 Ohio State 1
9 LSU 5
10 TCU
11 Miami (Florida)
12 Oregon
13 Kansas
14 Iowa 1
15 Nebraska 2
16 Penn State
17 Georgia Tech 4
18 Houston 6
19 Oklahoma State
20 South Florida
21 Utah 1
22 Brigham Young 1
23 South Carolina 2
24 Auburn 10
25 Notre Dame
Last week's ballot


Dropped Out: Mississippi (#18).

I finally don't feel guilty for ranking Utah! Looking around the draft ballots for the BlogPoll, it seems the Utes will be on the cusp of the top-25 this week (if not in it).

The largest change came from Auburn, who I woefully overrated. They were waxed by Arkansas and stayed ranked because, well, I just don't know who should replace them.

In fact, that seems to be the general trend. Once you get to the last 20, I don't really know who is deserving and who is not. South Florida? South Carolina? Utah? I guess they all have a legitimate case and are there because other programs on the cusp either lost last week (Wisconsin, Michigan), have worse losses (West Virginia, Pitt) or more than one-loss (Oklahoma).
