Blogpoll: Week 12

15:31 Cholis Back 0 Comments

Damn, that's it? Now we just have 3 weeks to wait until finding out what bowl Penn State ends up in. Thanks to the Big Ten for wrapping up so early that I can forget who is even on the team anymore before they play again. It's not like I was planning on watching any football this weekend anyway, but whatever, it's fixed next year. Here's what I've got, questions, corrections, suggestions and objections are always welcome.

Games Watched: Central Michigan/Ball State, Colorado/Oklahoma State, Boise State/Utah State, Ohio State/Michigan, Minnesota/Iowa, UConn/Notre Dame, Penn State/Michigan State, LSU/Ole Miss, Kansas State/Nebraska and Oregon/Arizona.

Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Arizona (#23).


The Top 7 hold steady, LSU coaches its way to incompetence and a loss against Ole Miss who was just slightly less incompetent. Wisconsin clears up my internal debate in the Penn State/Wisconsin ranking question. Oregon State would be my Pac-10 Rose Bowl pick at the moment, C.J. Spiller could seal a Heisman leading an upset of Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship. Pitt's single loss is the worst of any in the top 15 (with the exception of maybe Purdue over Ohio State, but the Buckeyes have scalps of worth in their win column to brush it off) and really need a win against Cincinnati to leap over anyone ahead of them. Temple continues inching closer to getting ranked, winning the MAC would remove all doubt.
