The top four all survive another week, but we're shuffling things up due to the drama in South Bend.
Hey friends, I am kind of swamped with work today, so this will be short. I'll swing by and check the comments later to see any insights/questions, and I'm always available @rakesofmallow on Twitter. Quick hitters:
* Alabama stays at number one partially because they beat a good team on the road and partially because I don't believe in anyone else more than them.
* The next three are all really close, and I may shuffle them again. When it comes to ND, I always have them lose out on this ballot when it is in question, just to counter my Irish bias. Kansas State could probably be one, if you wanted, but I don't think their resume is better than Notre Dame's. This all is very frustrating.
* Florida State hasn't beaten anyone and lost to a miserable NC State team. Clemson lost to them. #goacc
* The bottom of the ballot is a train wreck. You could make a case for a dozen different teams for the final six spots on the ballot. If anyone is particularly compelled, state your case and we'll switch someone out.
