BlogPoll Ballot Week 6 Draft

The college football world seems particularly muddled this week. Let's try to sort it out.

Bullet points after the jump. I need a lot of help with this one, you guys:


Some explanations:

  • Florida moves up because they handled Tennessee better than Georgia did (on the road) and Kentucky way better than South Carolina did. They also won at Texas A&M, who destroyed Arkansas like Alabama did. That's not worth a lot, but it's worth something.
  • Miami improves to 4-1, bolstering Kansas State's 40-point win over them just a bit more.
  • LSU moves up a smidge not because of their victory over Towson, but because a Washington team they took out to the bayou and fed to the gators defeated Stanford.
  • Oregon ends up slipping a bit because their beatdown of Arizona isn't as impressive when Arizona loses to Oregon State and the Wildcats' best win (Oklahoma State) goes down again. The Ducks also struggled (relatively) with a Washington State team coming off a loss to Colorado. Again, this is very fluid and the Ducks will obviously have ample opportunity to move on up.
  • I think it's possible Notre Dame hasn't played a halfway-decent team yet. We will see.
  • Oregon State, Texas and Ohio State all move up on the backs of nice road wins. The former actually have two solid road wins (Beavers at UCLA and Arizona, Horns at Ole Miss and Oklahoma State). The Buckeyes seem like the best team in the Big Ten because of course.
  • The bottom of the poll is really muddled, and any help would be appreciated. How do you evaluate one-loss USC or Stanford against undefeated teams who haven't really defeated anyone of note yet?
