BlogPoll: Week Five

As the date line on this essay clearly indicates, it has been a solid week since my last publication.

You're Welcome.

I have been absolutely swamped the past week with the oppressive daily grind that is law school sprinkled with the added joy of trying to complete a moot court brief. As such, writing essays about Syracuse's incredible roster of injured footballers has taken a necessary backseat.

I hope to have my house in order by this weekend so as to watch the heroic beating the Orange will take at the hands of the Seminoles. If not, I'm officially on hiatus until October 4th.

    Keeping Michigan ranked and not Georgia Tech makes baby kittens cry.

    From what my Mom used to tell me, there's another activity that makes baby kittens cry, but that has less to do with football and more to do with some soggy tissues.

    Anyways, onto the GT-Michigan issue.

    After the pounding GTech took at the hands of VTech this weekend, I couldn't in good conscience keep them in my poll. The Yellow Jackets turned in a Syracusian performance, basically allowing the better team to decimate them from one endzone to the other.

    Now, with that said, Michigan probably shouldn't be ranked either.

    But who else to include in the 25 spot?

    Virginia? Not after the clunker they turned in against the Orange.

    Wyoming? Get real.

    Oregon? I have little faith in the Ducks, even after the first half they turned in against SC.

    So it had to be Michigan, not because they deserve it, but because nobody else was deserving of the spot.
