At Saurian Sagacity our BlogPoll rankings are a group effort (led, of course, by yours truly). Trying to rank 120ish teams is an awesome task by oneself, and the helpful comments and suggestions are always welcome (not to mention the raison d’etre of the BlogPoll itself).
After weighing the various merits of commentators (within the bounds of resume style ranking) I have made the following changes –
Cincinnati is moving up. I credit Dan Shanoff with this insight.
Cal is moving down. Maryland isn’t a win worth noting.
I *think* Ole Miss is a good team, but they haven’t done anything yet to prove it. Movin’ on down.
Washington appears to be pretty good after all, and LSU won there. The Tigers move up.
As for the logical order of Miami ahead of FSU ahead of BYU ahead of Oklahoma, that is a tough call. FSU nearly gakked up to a lower division team at home, and I think their defense…well it stinks. BYU got totally owned, at home, by FSU. Oklahoma, on the other hand, lost a very close game at at neutral site.
So I don’t think the simple order ranking is necessary logical. However, at this point, it is good enough.
As for Iowa, it is a very close call. I’m not sure who I’d remove to include them. So they can wait for a week.
Our results are –
