Blogpoll Draft: Back In The Swing Of It

17:00 Cholis Back 0 Comments

Nothing refreshes like a full Saturday watching every game you can get your eyes on. It's especially sweet when your team is ripping it up. Not sure what to do with Oregon and USC, so I'll let this week take of it for me. Any other curiosities, throw in the comments. Corrections, suggestions and objections are always welcome.

Games Watched: Florida St./North Carolina, Rutgers/Army, Minnesota/Ohio St., South Florida/Pitt, Penn St./Michigan, Boston College/Notre Dame, Tennessee/Alabama, Clemson/Miami, Iowa/Michigan St., Florida/Mississippi St., Auburn/LSU, Texas/Missouri and Oregon St./USC.

Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Brigham Young (#18), Nebraska (#19), Kansas (#21), Missouri (#22), Auburn (#25).


Moving Up:
TCU - The cream of the Non-BCS schools. Still have a game against Utah that could be trouble but appears to be clear sailing otherwise at this point.

Big East - Meh, someone had to fill slots I previous filled with atrocious Big 12 North schools. Hey, look Central Michigan popped up there too.

Moving Down:
Boise State - The slide continues. Oregon and then what? Maybe the AD should be looking for a Mountain West invitation.

Big 12 North - Do they really need to have a representative in the Big 12 Championship? Will the winner even be bowl eligible?
