Blogpoll Draft: A Whole Lot Of Meh Going On

15:35 Cholis Back 0 Comments

Another ugly week of upsets makes for another ugly poll. No one is separating themselves from the pack, which leaves us with a huddled mass of blah. I painted myself into a corner with Oregon, USC, Ohio State and Penn State so it was settled with the transitive property. I know, I see Utah there, but they'll stick around another week and we'll see how that TCU game shakes out. Iowa finally gave in after spending the season being poisoned, shot, beaten, castrated, tied up and thrown into an icy river. The loss of Stanzi couldn't come at a worse time, he's got the mystical powers they need heading into Columbus. I have a bad feeling that a collapse might be imminent and that's unfortunate to see after the season they've had. Oregon State, on the other hand, might be getting itself in shape at the right time to deliver a rematch of USC and Ohio State in the Rose Bowl, thanks in part to Penn State's non-appearance and Stanford's gotcha game. It's a mess, have at it. Corrections, suggestions and objections are always welcome.

Games Watched: Virginia Tech/East Carolina, Louisiana Tech/Boise State, Ohio State/Penn State, Florida State/Clemson and UConn/Cincinnati.
