Last week’s ballot

Dropped Out: Notre Dame (#18), Oklahoma (#20), California (#23), Mississippi (#25).

Please forgive, but this was done in an sleep-deprived haze. I know something is going to be wrong. Tell me about it.


  1. Oregon has to be above USC. And did you watch USC this weekend? They are not deserving of a move up, regardless of who lost ahead of them. This is a team in regression.

  2. Oregon crushed USC just last week. No way should they drop lower, especially when USC looked terrible last Sat.

    Also, TCU > Boise.

    Props to including Navy.

  3. Yes, the Oregon ranking is my bad. I had them higher than USC earlier, not sure how that one got by. Oregon is still the better team. I’ll fix that.

    @sM – I thought about TCU going higher, but Boise does have a victory of a formerly top-ten team. What does TCU have over that? I know Boise has struggled with lesser teams. Is that your reasoning?

  4. Playoffs

  5. eK – just my opinion, here’s my comparison:

    Against ranked teams: TCU 2-0, Boise 1-0 (and TCU will likely go to 3-0 this weekend)

    Against teams with winning records: TCU 4-0, Boise 2-0

    Avg. margin of victory: TCU 26.2, Boise 25.4 (especially relevant given the two facts above)

    Red zone success: TCU 93%, Boise 84%

    While I’m cherrypicking stats – Largest home crowd of season: TCU 37K, Boise 32K

  6. @sM – compelling arguments, all of them. I shall take them into consideration.

    And LOL @ their largest home crowds.
