This weeks ballot is a total mess. Here are a few thoughts:
- Yes the Pac-10 is a total mess. Is Arizona (after losing to New Mexico) really the 5th best team, one place behind a team that lost at home to UNLV? I'm willing to forgive Cal's loss in the long term because it was a long way from home, but they will have to do some work to break back into the poll. ASU must play well next week to gain consideration, but the UNLV loss wasn't a fluke. UNLV played them straight up.
- Auburn is a total mess on offense. They've had problems in earlier games, and scored only 3 points this weekend. They are dinged accordingly.
- Ohio State couldn't run the ball or stop the run. This could easily continue against Penn State and Wisconsin. I guess the Big 10 isn't an open and shut case.
- The Big XII is very good this year, and it'll lead for some very exciting football.
As always, leave your thoughts on the poll or college football in general below.
Dropped Out: California (#12), Arizona State (#13), UCLA (#25).
