Wow what a weird pol. Tons of homer-ish voting causing total confusion. TCU is in first place by 28 votes despite the fact that 'Bama had 6 more first place votes! This is what happens when people don't vote for 'Bama. I'd also like to point out to you guys that Texas isn't a bad team and that Cal is not such a good team. At least not good enough to deserve 6 first place votes! In other news Florida drops to the lowest it's been this season while Oregon rises again. The biggest movement this week is of course California's rise combined with LSU's and Stanford's drop.


The Biggest Homer Award goes to...

... gol, jl, steveo, Ghost of Joe Roth, kk, and Rocksanddirt, all of whom voted for Cal as #1!

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

Sigh. Come on guys we're not *that* good.


The OMG Cal Sux Award goes to...

... Ohio Bear who voted for Cal as #21!

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

And we're not that bad!


The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Wisconsin
  2. Nebraska
  3. Stanford
  4. Utah
  5. LSU

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.

So why did Wisconsin and Nebraska end up getting ranked anyway? Has Wisconsin done anything notable this season anyway?


The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Alabama
  2. Boise State
  3. Florida
  4. TCU
  5. Cincinnati

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.

As usual it's teams in the top 10 that are devoid of confusion.


The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...

  1. Rocksanddirt
  2. aslkdjfgregs
  3. Ghost of Joe Roth
  4. steveo
  5. jl

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

Rocksanddirt had came in first votes for Cal at #1 and Oregon at #2 while totally omitting Alabama from his ballot, in addition to voting in Stanford at #8 and Navy at #25. aslkdjfgregs flipped it around with Oregon at #1 and Cal at #2 and Georgia Tech at #3. At least he voted for Alabama at 5.


The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...

  1. Berkelium97
  2. neodarksaver
  3. MadBum
  4. Ohio Bear
  5. CruzinBears

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

How do you do this Berkelium? Always knowing exactly how it's going to turn out so that you can match your ballot as closely as possible?!
