Back to back losses for the Cavaliers means that the Hoos aren't even close to the Top 25. In fact, only two ACC schools make the cut. How many would the Hoos need to win in a row to land on the charts?

Whoops, I forgot to submit my BlogPoll ballot this week, which I'm pretty sure means that these Week 4 results, based on the over 100 other bloggers' votes, are all null and void. But just for funsies, here's what the other voters decided on:

So Michigan took a pretty big tumble; I'm not sure I would have punished them that badly. Plus, who's this fool that put Notre Dame as No. 1?

But how about Florida State, holding down the fort for the ACC and moving on up into the Top 3? I think that's a fair bump, and I likely would have done it as well. Hokies still off the board, which is good.

Only two ACC schools this week in the Top 25. Any predictions on how many ACC teams will find their way in come December? Starting with this week vs. Louisiana Tech, how many would Virginia need to win in a row to get there, considering the relatively weak schedule?
