CGB Top-25 Week 11 Results

I'm late yet again... In any case this week was the first week in which Rishi voted! Or at least someone claiming to be him. In the end I had to throw out the ballot because it was ridiculous. Cal at #1 was the best part of the ballot because it had stinkers like Wazzu, Temple, Duke, SMU, UTEP, etc. Outside of Cal no other team on his ballot deserved a single vote. Unfortunately this means we only have 9 ballots this week.

1 Alabama (4) 1
2 Florida (2) 1
3 TCU (2) --
4 Cincinnati --
5 Texas (1) --
6 Georgia Tech 1
7 Oregon 1
8 Boise State 2
9 Ohio State 1
10 Pittsburgh 2
11 LSU --
12 Virginia Tech 5
13 Stanford 10
14 Penn State 4
15 Iowa 1
16 Oklahoma State 4
17 Oregon State 4
18 Miami (Fla.) 5
19 Clemson 5
20 Southern California 11
21 Brigham Young 1

A couple of big moves but most in the bottom half of the poll. Namely Stanford's and Cal's rise and USC and Utah's fall. Arizona and Houston also falls out from a pretty high up position in the poll. Houston I can understand, but 'Zona? In other news Alabama takes over Florida's spot and it makes no difference as they'll play each other anyway. TCU also recieves two first place votes but it doesn't do enough to upset the top 2. Isn't it odd seeing USC in the 20s?


The Biggest Homer Award goes to...

... DougOLis, who voted for Cal as #21!

This award was presented to the user(s) who loved Cal the most out of everyone who voted this week

Most everyone who did vote for Cal voted for us in the low twenties. No surprise here.


The OMG Cal Sux Award goes to...

... Missing Barry, Ohio Bear, and Kai, all of whom did not vote for Cal!

This award was presented to the user(s) who held a glass half-empty look at Cal

Anyone surprised to see Missing Barry in here?


The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Utah
  2. Brigham Young
  3. Clemson
  4. Virginia Tech
  5. Miami (Fla.)

Most people had the most trouble figuring out where these five teams belonged. This list is limited to teams that are in the top-25 only.

Utah because well they got killed by TCU, BYU because well what have they done notable other than beating up a Bradford less Oklahoma and the other three are schizophrenic ACC teams.


The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Wisconsin
  2. California
  3. Nebraska
  4. Alabama
  5. Florida

Most people were generally on the same page when it came to these teams. This list is limited to teams that are in the top-25 only otherwise all the crappy teams would top this list.

I'm a little surprised to see Wiscy on here as I'm definitely confused about them


The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...

  1. Kai
  2. Missing Barry
  3. Takimoto
  4. BeastMode
  5. royrules22

This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed most from the overall Top 25.

"Rishi" would've won this but since he's not included it's Kai! He had votes such as TCU at #2, Florida St at #23, LSU at #21 and Clemson at #8! It's crazy I tell you!


The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...

  1. Ohio Bear
  2. Rated-R Superstar
  3. Berkelium97
  4. DougOLis
  5. royrules22

This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed the least from the overall Top 25.

Hey look I get two awards! That's because only 9 people voted... argh. Ohio Bear's life in drab Ohio is reflected in his poll, yikes!
