Dropped Out: Penn State (#7), South Carolina (#14), Texas A&M (#19), Louisville (#22), Nebraska (#23).

We have both LSU/OU and OSU/West Virginia tied, so we go with the arbitrary alphabetical order for no other reason than “O” comes before “W”. Let us hope we will not run afoul of the recent BlogPoll curse, where homers (such as us) rank the home team a little higher than the BlogPoll collective and then see their team lose. I am confident that no such collapse is imminent, as we’ll be beating Minnesota by at least five touchdowns on Saturday.

It’s still weird seeing Kentucky and Cincy in the top 25. Remember, this is football, not basketball!

I didn’t notice it until now, but Penn State fell from #7. Yikes. But, you lose to Michigan and bad things will follow.

That’s some high quality blog-2-oh!

Brian at MGoBlog is to college football blogging as water from a glacier, blessed by an Eskimo medicine man, is to Bobby Boucher.

I meant to link this earlier, but Brain’s Ohio State 2007 Preview is simply top-notch blogging. His whole Big Ten preview has been great but his Ohio State preview shines above the rest. He may rely a little too heavily on recruit rankings for my taste, but it doesn’t detract from the points he makes. Brian is at the top of the analysis game when it comes to college football blogging.

I’m already feeling sorry for him, though, because it is just going to kill him when the Buckeyes ruin Michigan’s season again.
