Good God, what a hot mess.

  • In the BCS standings, Baylor is creeping up on Ohio State for the #3 spot. In the QuackPoll, they're creeping up on Alabama for the #2 spot, thanks in most part to my trollin' ass.
  • It seems impossible for ten of the bottom twelve teams to have fallen in the rankings, but it works somehow. The rise of Wisconsin, Arizona State, and Northern Illinois have caused many other teams to fall. Speaking of, let's talk about those three team, whom Dave, Noah, and I irrationally like. The Badgers, Sun Devils, and Huskies are nos. 16, 19, and 20 respectively in the AP poll. But we've got all three in our top 13. I'm gonna assume it's because we're smart and they're dumb.
  • DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUKE
  • The logjam of one-loss teams from #5-#10 is very interesting. I think Oregon's clearly the best of that bunch, but you could make a case for any of the other teams to be at #6. Missouri has the most forgivable loss (though it was at home), Clemson probably wins the eye test, Oklahoma State is playing the best lately, Michigan State has the best defense, and Auburn has miracles on their side.
  • Stanford drops eleven spots after their loss to USC, mostly due, again, to my trollin' ass.
