|Last week's ballot|
Dropped Out: Stanford (#18), Boston College (#23), Arizona (#24).
Attention fellow voters: If you continue to insist on ranking BYU, especially over Houston, please slap yourself in the face immediately. Consider: Texas Tech (which lost to Houston) just bitchslapped Oklahoma. BYU's marquee win until this week was a one-point luckfest over OU. Oh, and Houston also beat Oklahoma State. Yes, Houston has a couple goofy losses. And BYU got housed at home by Florida State, which just became bowl-eligible by squeeeeeeking past Maryland. At home.
I didn't really intend to lump all those ACC teams in a row, but that's the way the science came out.
LSU losing to Mississippi caused me to take an actual hard look at their schedule, which is surprisingly fraudulent. They took quite a fall given they lost by just two to a halfway decent team, but they really don't have anything to hang their hat on. They're right where they belong, IMO.
