  • Note: Poll now reflects additions/corrections by Collin Long. He is less enthusiastic about this poll, but his ballot balanced many of the glaring errors I made originally.
  • I am fairly certain that the front four teams are truly ranked in the correct order (i.e., if Ohio State played WVU, the Buckeyes would win; if West Virginia played Auburn, the Mountaineers would win; etc.)
  • The back end of this ballot is a mess. Wake Forest makes the ballot on the strength of two BCS-conference victories (Syracuse and Connecticut) and a spotless record. I really don't anticipate Wake staying, but the Demon Deacons certainly deserve some credit at this point. Especially if Rutgers (who has victories over winless North Carolina and Illinois) are going to get kudos.
  • I am not putting Boston College or Penn State back in my ballot until they convincingly pound someone of sizeable stature. I am inscribing this law into stone.
  • Spots 10-20 are interchangeable to me. Ideally, I'd like to rank them all 15 until something gets sorted out.
  • If you can make a case for Georgia Tech, I'll listen. But if you rely on "they played Notre Dame tough," I'm not buying in. To be honest, destroying Virginia isn't much of an accomplishment as the Cavs have instituted the Syracuse '05 offense this year.
