After missing Dom and Jake last week, the QuackPoll is at full strength. After 9 weeks of play, here's how it looks:
|Rank||Team||Points (125 max)||Change|
|2||Florida State (2)||120||-1|
Also receiving votes: Notre Dame (3), Ole Miss (2), Minnesota (2), Oregon State (1), Texas (1)
Dropping Out: Nebraska and Oregon State
Some weirdness in the lower end of the poll, probably due to the biases of Jake and Dom being added back it to the fold. UCF, Wisconsin, and Louisville all dropped spots after wins.
Oregon's back on top after their win over UCLA. Florida State and Alabama did nothing to deserve being dropped in the polls, but we're unabashed homers and we like our guys at #1.
Michigan and Arizona State feel like "I mean, I guess they're good enough to be ranked, kind of" picks. I personally don't like either of these teams, but if the alternative is ranking Nebraska, Washington, or Georgia, then sure. Fine. Whatever.
Ohio State breaks its tie with Baylor and moves into the #4 spot. I'm not happy with it, but I will accept it like a good member of a democracy. And when Baylor beats Oklahoma by 30 next week, everything will sort itself out.
Biases this week:
|Loves||Wisconsin (#11)||Stanford (#5)||Oklahoma State (#15)||Oklahoma (#9)||LSU (#11)|
|Hates||Louisville (#25)||UCF (unranked)||Fresno State (unranked)||Texas A&M (#21)||UCF (#21)|
