I almost decided to deface my ballot than recognize who the top two teams are in this poll. At this rate I'll be skipping another national title game. (I still haven't watched last year's and probably never will.) Anyway, here's our draft of the BlogPoll following the third week of the season.
A few personal thoughts:
- Gary and Andrew really hate Ohio State for some reason. I mean, REALLY hate them.
- I have no idea why Nebraska got replaced by Oklahoma State.
- There are four really good teams. I don't consider Georgia on the level of Oregon or Florida State. The next dropoff is after USC, because I think they would wallop K-State.
- For a minute I thought about rigging the poll to make Pittsburgh #25, so they could get one of those insulting "shout-out" votes for doing the unexpected and beating an FBS school. Grape Job Pitt!
What would you all change in this poll? Let us know in the comments.
