Monday, October 05, 2009 BlogPoll Week 5 Draft

I have mixed feelings on Oklahoma; they should have beaten Miami last night on the road, but didn't. I still think they're a better team than Nebraska, and I can't bump them below Nebraska nor anybody else underneath Nebraska...but I have to move Miami ahead of Oklahoma for now. So I'm bumping Miami to 10th, though I'm feeling uncomfortable saying Miami is a top ten team right now.
1 Alabama
2 Florida
3 Texas
4 Virginia Tech
5 LSU 1
6 Boise State 1
7 Southern Cal 1
8 TCU 1
9 Cincinnati 1
10 Miami (Florida) 10
11 Oklahoma 4
12 Nebraska 1
13 Ohio State 1
14 Oklahoma State
15 Oregon 4
16 Kansas
17 Missouri 1
18 Iowa 3
19 Auburn
20 Penn State 3
21 Georgia Tech 4
22 Wisconsin
23 Georgia 6
24 Arizona
25 South Carolina
Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Houston (#13), California (#21), Mississippi (#22), Michigan (#24).

Iowa falls for struggling with Arkansas State, a team Nebraska dispatched easily. I was skeptical of Houston, and losing to UTEP confirmed that. So out they go. I'm finding less and less to like about Ole Miss, so out they go as well for now. Problem with bringing teams in is that they all have warts. Wisconsin? Arizona? South Carolina? Maybe I should rethink that Ole Miss dropout.

Big XII PowerPoll
  1. Texas
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Nebraska
  4. Oklahoma State
  5. Kansas
  6. Missouri
  7. Baylor
  8. Texas Tech
  9. Texas A&M
  10. Kansas State
  11. Iowa State
  12. Colorao
Top 6 teams were idle this week, so no change there. Tech looked shaky against a horrible New Mexico team while A&M got exposed by Arkansas. Baylor looked ok with their third string quarterback, so up they go to 7th. Kansas State blocks an extra point and moves up to 10th. And after watching Noel Devine gash the Buffaloes, it's obvious that there is no "D" in Colorao. And that "pro style offense" is such a great match for the Buffs personnel...not. Next up for the Buffies: Texas. Can the 'Horns hang 100 on the hapless hoofstock?
