The QuackPoll, Week 4: Dave and Jake Have Gone Missing

New, 13 comments

If you see them, make sure they're fed and they have access to madmike's YouTube channel. That's pretty much all they need.

I sent a reminder email and everything.

But, like wide receivers in a Nick Holt defense, sometimes things get through. Dave and Jake's ballot's this week are MIA, so we'll have to make-do without them. Here's what Noah, Dom, and I ended up with after Week 4's games.

Notes from this week:

  • Oregon's back on top, and it's all Tako's fault - Alabama, the top team in the Week 3 QuackPoll, sleepwalked through a 31-6 win over Colorado State. It didn't look good, and it costs the Tide this week. Losing Jake's and Dave's ballots, both of whom had 'Bama at #1 last week, would have been enough to knock them to #2. Tako dropped the Tide all the way to #7 in his poll, and that was enough to drop Alabama below Clemson to #3 in the combined ballot.
  • I am convinced that LSU will be the #4 team in every combined poll, no matter how anyone feels about them.
  • Week 5 is gonna change EVERYTHING - Alabama-Ole Miss, LSU-Georgia, UCF-South Carolina, and Wisconsin-Ohio State all have serious QuackPoll implications, and at least two of those should be fun to watch (I'll leave it to you to figure out which two).
  • Michigan should probably stop sucking - The Wolverines are 4-0, and dropping like a rock. After consecutive nail-biting wins over Akron and UConn, Michigan has fallen from #5 all the way to #25, and the only reason they're ranked at all is because Dom sees good in them, putting them at #18 in his ballot.
  • This week, we like... Alabama (Noah's #1), Washington (Tako's #3), Louisville (Dom's #6)
  • This week, we hate...Miami (Noah's #22), Stanford (Tako's #15), Baylor (Dom's #17)
