I missed posting these ballots last week, so here we are one week later. And, in the national scene, the story is, as it has been, that the 10-25 spots are a huge mess. Almost every team has bad losses, and few good wins. So I did my best to try and sort the on-field results as best as I could. If you have any suggestions, leave them below. Another note, I have dropped the various non-BCS teams in the poll. I just can't justify having them in the top 10. While Utah, Boise State, etc. are good teams, they have not had to play a tough schedule by any stretch of the imagination, and can no longer rest on their one or two out of conference wins.
In the Pac-10, OSU is getting closer to a Rose Bowl birth, but has two tough games remaining. California showed that it has very little offensive firepower outside of Jahvid Best, and cannot pass block at all, thanks mostly to injuries. Oregon showed what its capable of, in being both amazing, and horrible, in two different halfs. Also, Arizona showed promise in that they never gave up, which was very un-Stoops like.
Another addition to all of these ballots is the Pac-10 Heisman ballot, which is put together by Jake over at Building the Dam. The ATQ ballot is as follows:
- Jacquizz Rodgers. He's been by far the most consistent offensive player in the Pac-10 this year.
- Mark Sanchez. While not spectacular, he's been solid overall, and he's leading the best team in the Pac-10.
- Nick Reed. He's leading the league in both sacks and tackles for loss, and is one of my favorite Oregon players in some time.
The full BlogPoll ballot is after the jump. Please leave your comments on the ballots, or college football or the Pac-10 in general. GO DUCKS!
