Week 9 BlogPoll Ballot

My full ballot is after the jump. Here's a quick justification of the movers, shakers and frozen.

  • Oregon or Auburn? Oregon has looked more dominate, but Auburn has beaten better teams. I'm going with the Ducks because I'm infatuated with the Blur.
  • Mizzou travels to Nebraska this Saturday; both tagteamed the state Oklahoma over the top rope. We'll know a lot more about each team after they play. For now Mizzou gets a huge bump, because they're undefeated. Nebraska's loss to Texas is an even bigger blemish on their resume after the 'Horns got dropped by Iowa State.
  • Florida State drops because I should have bumped them down last week after they struggled with BC.
  • Iowa's losses are respectable, as soon as they notch a quality win they'll move up.
  • I didn't think I'd rank Virginia Tech before we played Georgia Tech, but then a lot of other teams lost and we started playing offense.

I know this ballot is a mess. Let me know what I need to change before Wednesday.

Sparty Says

Hey look at me, I beat a team in your top ten by 10. I'm undefeated. Why am I ranked behind TCU?

Eye Test

I think TCU looks better than Michigan State. If Sparty wins at Iowa I'll have to bump them into the top three.
