Poor Houston and West Virignia. They're totally not in our poll even though they are ranked nationally (Houston even pretty high!). Aside that we continue to rate Pac-10 teams higher than the media and the BCS. This means that as usual Cal is ranked highly by a Cal blog (!). That aside the top-5 remains generally stable with only minor flux (and two of these teams will duel it out this coming Saturday). However TCU remains the #1 vote for two weeks in a row. Only major drops are by Oklahoma State, Pitt, Georgia Tech and Clemson. But that aside it's not that much more different than last week, albeit with fewer voters. Personally I found this week the hardest to vote since the beginning of the season.

The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...
- 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.
WTF has Utah done that is worthwhile. In my opinion they're living off the hype of last year. Okla St and Clemson are meh teams anyway.
The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...
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.
Surprise surprise, Alabama and Florida once again make an appearance. I want people to be confused with them for once! Oregon is a surprising visitor to the list however.
The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...
This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed most from the overall Top 25.
rocksanddirt wins this week's crazy voter award with votes such as Cal at #1, Stanford at #7, UCLA at #19, Navy at #25 and of course not voting for Florida at all. Fake Hydrotech came in second with votes such as Cal at #1, Florida at #5, and Iowa at #15.
The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...
- Rated-R Superstar
- Ohio Bear
This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed the least from the overall Top 25.
It seems almost every week Rated-R Superstar shows up and we see a performance from one of the Bears in Ohio. Rated-R Superstar's only big difference was Cal at #18.
