Gotta love that love at 25 for the MAC West champions Central Michigan Chippewas!

wow i would have thought you and benny would at least show some respect for the Big 10...Wisconsin at 10? Give me a break.

Good looking ballot, although I think you're punishing Cal a little too much for a game in which they were obviously looking ahead to USC. I think they would beat Auburn and Wake, but that's JMO. Just a nitpick though.

about cal, brad.

i'm not so sure they were looking ahead to usc. they really didn't play such a bad game, and had a few calls gone differently, the game wouldn't have even been that close.

but agreed that perhaps they shouldn't be that low. but mich/osu fans may want to pay attention to that cal/usc game...it could be the rose bowl opponent if that's how things play out.

Texas loses the week after you finally give us props.

Can you remove us from your top 25?

Yost said...

LOL, Jason. Sorry 'bout that.

Florida dropping after losing to USC - a team that also nearly beat Auburn, Tenn, & Arkansas, but you have Southern Cal moving up four spots after beating a nobody and they have also lost to a nobody... not sure I see the logic in that.

Wisconsin at 10? Who have they played? They lost to the only team, with any talent that they have played. By the same token, so have the Cocks, but you penalize the Gators for winning. I don't recall Michigan or OSU losing spots after their ugly wins weekend before last.

if tOSU and ND win out... can you imagine the uproar at ND in Glendale?

Hey anon, don't sweat the Florida stuff, they will lose again, if not to FSU in Tallahassee, they will in the SEC championship. So they have plenty of room to drop some more.

Yes. Rutgers > Louisville > WVU (at least until WVU beats Rutgers). What possible justification is there for anything else? Why is that so hard for the "real" polls?
