Blogpoll Ballot: Week 11 Draft

Week 11 is here, and it's time to publish my blogpoll ballot for this week.

Alabama surges to the top, Texas falls to #2, and Florida winds up at #3.  Well, you have to put all of them somewhere, and I guess they will just be taking turns on my ballot for a while.

There were relatively few big games last week, so what we had is a series of humdrum games, with none of the top teams really having the opportunity to prove their superiority.  I guess that will happen for sure when Alabama and Florida face off in the SEC championship.  Texas' only remaining games are against fading Kansas, mediocre Texas A&M and Nebraska in the Big 12 championship, so they will likely be in the BCS championship game versus the winner of the SEC championship game.

My ballot follows the jump.

Rank Team Delta
1 Alabama 2
2 Texas 1
3 Florida 1
4 Cincinnati
6 Boise State
7 Georgia Tech 1
8 Pittsburgh 1
9 Oregon 2
10 Ohio State 2
11 Stanford 8
12 Iowa 2
13 Oklahoma State 3
14 LSU 1
15 Virginia Tech 3
16 Houston 7
17 Penn State 3
18 Clemson 4
19 Miami (Florida) 5
20 Southern Cal 7
21 North Carolina 2
22 Wisconsin 3
23 Oregon State
24 Nebraska
25 Navy
Last week's ballot


Dropped Out: Utah (#17), Arizona (#21), Auburn (#24).



  • Southern Cal is fading faster than a pair of bleached bluejeans on a sunny day.
  • Navy makes an appearance, which they honestly deserve. Go Navy, Beat Army!
  • North Carolina continues to hang in the ACC, and Miami is looking like a shell of the top 10 team earlier this year.  But Georgia Tech is the class of the conference.
  • Clemson continues its turn-around from its early season swoon.
  • Ohio State is making a move, and an impressive one.  Barring a loss to Michigan, the Big 10 will have to chose between Iowa or Ohio State for their champ.  Not sure how that is done these days.
  • Cincinnati continues to impress.  Where will they be when one of the two SEC teams finally lose, as must happen?
  • If Georgia Tech beats Georgia, they will likely take over the #6 spot from Boise State on my ballot.
  • How about the Stanford Cardinal?  Talk about coming out of nowhere.
  • Bad loss to UCF by Houston dropped them way down, but barring a catastrophe, they should win out.
