There is no joy in Mudville, there will no YouTubes or attempts at humor. No pontifications on whether the "Game of the Century of the Week" lived up to it's billing, just the Blogpoll. The biggest movers up were Clemson and Michigan State simply because of all the losses around them, Alabama, Nebraska, Kansas State and Michigan all fall this week and South Carolina somehow remained in place despite losing to Arkansas through a strange mix of upsets and bye weeks, but are left in a precarious position with this week's slate. I have the biggest problems with the ranking between 9 and 18, it's a complete mess. Again, I'm expecting to see some clarity following the games this weekend. Take a look at the BlogPoll ballot below the jump. As always, questions, corrections, suggestions and objections are welcome.
Arizona State plummets out of the poll as you simply cannot lose to UCLA. The Sun Devils were joined by West Virginia and Washington through the exit. Ohio State, Auburn and Cincinnati slide in to complete the 25 spots. The Buckeyes control their own destiny in the Big Ten and I didn't know who else to fill out the last two spots with, so congratulations Tigers and Bearcats I just stopped caring at that point. Games of note this week are: Oregon at Stanford, TCU at Boise State, Oklahoma at Baylor, Nebraska at Penn State, Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech, Georgia at Auburn and West Virginia at Cincinnati.
