A little late this time around because there were no games this weekend (other than Army/Navy neither of whom would be ranked) and because we only had like 3 ballots until much later. We only have 8 now, so it's not much of an improvement.
Others receiving votes:
California, Wisconsin, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Arkansas, North Carolina, Central Michigan, Texas A&M
Dropped out this week:
Biggest Difference from AP Poll:
Southern California +10, Clemson +9, West Virginia -7, Central Michigan -7
Biggest Difference from BCS Poll:
West Virginia -9, Oregon State +5, LSU -4, Clemson UNR, Wisconsin UNR
Looks like a lot of people just mailed in their ballot without thinking about it (I'm guilty of this also). I mean what else describes our bias for Texas and ranking West Virginia significantly lower than the official polls. Other than that not much to say. Alabama for now is king of the hill and if we had our way we'd have a 'Bama v. TCU national championship. Unfortunately we don't.

The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...
- Southern California
- Oklahoma State
- Brigham Young
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 our bowl opponent is one of the perennial confused team. They haven't really done much to prove they're that good, and on the same token have done much to prove they're bad. As for USC, everyone is probably scared of dropping USC from a poll.
The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...
- West Virginia
- Ohio State
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.
So all (8) of us decided to vote West Virginia at a much lower position than the rest of us. It's interesting to note that Bama is not unanimous.
The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...
- Davis Bear
This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed most from the overall Top 25.
Heh. Really almost all of us had the exact same divergence. The only WTF vote was Takimoto's vote for Oregon at #1. The rest of us just had weird votes such as Cincinnati at #2, USC at #25 (me), or hell even Texas A&M at #25 (Davis Bear).
The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...

Everyone else. We only had 8 voters so there is overlap here.
Sorry, I didn't really put effort into this.
