George Frey

So upset that it thinks about ranking Oregon State.

7 UCLA 89 +2
8 Texas A&M 87 +5

10 Miami 80 +2
11 Baylor 78 0
12 South Carolina 64 +4
13 Stanford 60 -9
14 Texas Tech 57 +3
15 Missouri 55 +9
16 Georgia 51 -9
17 Virginia Tech 47 +8
18 Washington 40 -4

23 Northern Illinois 17 0
24 Wisconsin 12 n/a
25 Utah 9 n/a

Also receiving votes: Arizona State (6), Auburn (6), Nebraska (6), Oregon State (5)

Dropping out of the poll: Michigan and Northwestern


The top 3 remain the same, though Clemson's place at #3 got a good run from Florida State. The two teams meet Saturday, and I'm sure their QuackPoll ranking will be on their minds. Obviously the big story from last week was a number of ranked teams losing. Stanford and Georgia both took a nine-spot hit, the Cardinal for sleepwalking through their game at Utah, and Georgia for losing to Missouri, although in the second half they were so injured they had a 45 year old fan from Augusta and UGA the mascot lined up at wide receiver. Other interesting tidbits:

  • Miami jumped Baylor without playing last week, though Baylor's first game of the year looking like mortals didn't win them any style points with the skeptical voters.
  • Texas A&M jumped five spots - including still-undefeateds Miami, Baylor, and Louisville - despite almost losing to Ole Miss. To recap, a one-loss team jumped three undefeated teams by barely beating a team who entered the game on a two-game losing streak. I find this puzzling.
  • All of us finally noticed Virginia Tech's six-game winning streak. Granted, it is an incredibly dull and unexciting six-game winning streak that was easy to miss, and included an overtime win over Marshall, but it's a streak nonetheless. The Top Whatever might have this right.
  • Georgia is 2-2 against the teams ranked above them, just in case you didn't have a clear enough perspective on how insane their schedule has been so far.
Biases of the week!
