No SEC Power Poll balloting this week (for obvious “are there any changes to make? No, no there are not” reasons), but here’s the WBE BlogPoll ballot:
|Last week’s ballot|
Dropped Out: Houston (#21).
The usual set of notes:
— I hate this Texas team. Hate. Fraudiest bunch of frauds that ever frauded. More on this later today.
— Yeah, Oregon ahead of Florida. Winning the Pac-10 (maybe the best conference in the country this year … yeah, I said it) is worth more than finishing runner-up in the SEC, especially when said runner-up has a road win over LSU and almost precious little else to really hang its hat on.
— Flying leap for Arizona from out of the poll to No. 14, but a road win at USC is still nothing to sneeze at–Trojans’ resume is still easily top-25 caliber, even if they’re not playing like it at the moment. Head-to-head nudges them ahead of Stanford.
— The Pac-10 is kind of a mess: five different 8-4 teams behind Oregon. Put the 6-3 in league play teams ahead of the 5-4 ones, they tried to pay attention to head-to-head from there.
— Miami moving up is pure correction.
— Thought about including Central Michigan, but the fact that they weren’t even competitive at a Boston College team that’s not really anywhere near the top 25 really hurts them.
