My full ballot is after the jump. Here's a quick justification of the not so obvious movers, shakers and frozen.
- By my eye test LSU might have the best defense in the country. Over the last few weeks their offense has gone from suspect, to serviceable. There is also something to be said for Les Miles getting the big call right every, single, time. I think they're the best one loss team in the country and it's close but I think they're better than Boise State.
- For right now, I'm just whacking Arizona on the knuckles. Stanford blew their doors off, but they still only have two losses and have beaten some good teams. With that said, if they lose to USC they could drop out of the poll altogether.
- Oklahoma - Phil Steele needs to work in "bitchassness" into his set of power rankings for next year so he can give a better preseason prediction.
- Utah - I haven't been impressed with them all year and I think they've only looked flashy against the bottom feeders. So here we are.
I'll be submitting my final ballot on Wednesday, so if you have any suggestions leave them below before then.
