Countdown to Football Frustration

BlogPoll: Week Nine

To drop USC or not drop USC, that is the question.

Things haven't been easy for Pete Carroll the last few weeks, and that's probably a good thing for college football. Nobody likes to watch a blowout every week, and dynasties tend to lead to those unwanted results.

However, with greater competion comes the residual effect of questioning a team's strength as compared to other units. Southern California is certainly an awesome team, but it's getting harder and harder to say that they are heads and shoulders above either Texas or Virginia Tech at this point.

[Notes About This Week's Ballot]
If I could, I would have only ranked 23 teams this week.

I feel really confident with the top 11 teams I have slotted. Then things get fuzzy down to 20. Then it's just grasping at straws.

Texas Tech failed me. I know.

I didn't punish Auburn for losing to LSU this past weekend. In fact, they actually rose a position. I significantly underestimated how far they have progressed since game one this season.

    For once, I can say, "I agree with your poll."

    Told you Tech would crumble.
