It's a new week with the same top dog, as Alabama stays No. 1 in this week's BlogPoll. USC slides down to No. 3 after LSU overtakes them, but you can't blame that on me.
Here's the actual rankings:
And my ballot follows the jump:
That's right, no change for me in the top seven.
You want thoughts? I'll give you thoughts.
Obviously, Oklahoma State was among the most volatile this week. After utterly destroying Savannah State last weekend, they were beneficiaries of my overrating them, and ultimately threw it away with a defensive meltdown against Arizona this week. So you know what? I took them out of the Top 25 altogether. Come back next week, though, because I feel like you guys will fight your way back in.
Relatedly if I was high on Oklahoma State last week, enough to put them at No. 10, then I should give Arizona credit where it's due, right? Into the Top 25 they go.
I wanted to be high on Wisconsin. I wanted to believe. But Oregon State, really? Get out of here.
Stop laughing, Arkansas. I'm talking to you too.
West Virginia doesn't get a boost from me this week. Taking on Marshall in week one and then requiring a bye week before taking on JMU is not Top-10-worthy material.
