|25||North Carolina State|
|Last week's ballot|
Dropped Out: California (#5), Washington (#9), Pittsburgh (#14), North Carolina (#15), Florida State (#17), Brigham Young (#18), Mississippi (#23).
Who knows any more? This is really just me chucking things at the wall and seeing what sticks. This seems reasonable enough, but I'm easily swayed by convincing arguments this week, more so than usual. I will say that there were two games this week that had major ripple effects: Stanford's drubbing of Washington (hence drops for teams like LSU, USC, and OSU) and South Florida's win over Florida State in Tallahassee (causing a drop for teams like BYU, though not, oddly enough, Oklahoma.)
Anyway, suggestions that weren't made while drooling on your keyboard are highly likely to go into effect this week, because most of these teams don't have ironclad reasons to go where they are, and there were also about 10 other teams that didn't make the cut but easily could have. (Utah, for example.)
