Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Florida State (#18), Notre Dame (#21).

Ohio State may have lost, but they showed they are able to compete with a top program. So even though they lost, they move up. Again, that's because they played much better this week losing to USC than they did by squeaking by Navy. Oklahoma State falls by losing at home. Missouri drops for three quarters of suckage against the Perverts. (Unfair perhaps, but they've played 5 quarters of outstanding football and 3 quarters of awful football so far this season.) The Weasels get a spot for beating Notre Dame as well. Florida State bows out after trailing nearly the entire night against 1-AA Jacksonville State. (Even if Jacksonville State is quarterbacked by former LSU head-case Ryan Perriloux.)

Big XII PowerPoll
  1. Texas
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Nebraska
  4. Kansas
  5. Oklahoma State
  6. Missouri
  7. Baylor
  8. Texas A&M
  9. Texas Tech
  10. Iowa State
  11. Kansas State
  12. Colorado
About what you might expect until you get to the final 3 spots who embarrassed themselves this weekend. I almost should put them into a three-way tie for last, but that's the chicken way. Iowa State at least lost to a team that was ranked in the preseason, so it's probably the least bad loss. Kansas State sneaks ahead of Colorado because they at least were competitive with Lafayette. Colorado's defense was so mind-numbingly Cosgrovian that I can't help but rank them dead last.

When was the last time we saw two teams the likes of BYU and Boise State in the top 10 (or top 6 as the case may be)?

Gotta love the excitement and unpredictability of college football.
