Well first I want to note that only fourteen users voted this week, six less than last week. I guess the heartbreaking crushing the Bears received drove people away from the blog for a while. Here's to beating the Trojans!

But other than that this poll still has some WTFs and other notable movements. First and foremost is the two first place votes for Cal. Huh? We'll discuss this more later. In other notable news the top-10 was shuffled around. Alabama finally gains enough to overtake Florida as the number one team in the nation. Penn St, Cal, Miami (Fl.) and Ole Miss all drop out and VT, Cincinnati, Houston (!) and USC return. One thing I'm glad to see is that Houston is finally ranked above a team that it beat, Okla St. What a novel idea! But other than that this week is the week of meteoric rises and falls. Teams that imitated the sacking of Rome include Cal, Penn St, Ole Miss and Miami while Oregon, Iowa and Auburn all shot up to fill the void. Lastly, I have to ask: has TCU done anything worthwhile this season (and no beating Clemson is not a big deal)?


The Biggest Homer Award goes to...

... CaliforniaCMB, and ttgiang15, 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

Ok I don't understand this. For the past three weeks voting Cal as #1 wasn't too bad even if you were playing it dangerous with the all powerful juju. But does 42-3 ring a bell to you? I'm saying that we should hold CaliforniaCMB and ttgiang in contempt of the CGB court!


The OMG Cal Sux Award goes to...

... ragnarok, Norcalnick, and California Pete, 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

I can't blame anyone of you. Let's just leave it at that because saying any more is painful.


The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...

  1. UCLA
  2. California
  3. Mississippi
  4. Nebraska
  5. 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.

No surprises here as Cal and Ole Miss were heavily overrated and people are trying to figure out where they belong now. No one is sure of UCLA and Nebraska and are waiting for games that truly prove what these teams are capable of. And BYU is a WTF in of itself.


The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Iowa
  2. Auburn
  3. Alabama
  4. LSU
  5. Georgia

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.

A little surpsied to see Iowa and Auburn in here. Apparently most thought these teams were good enough to be ranked. I guess no one is laughing at the Gene Chizik hire at Auburn, huh?


The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...

  1. ttgiang15
  2. BeastMode
  3. ragnarok
  4. California Pete
  5. GBB4188

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

Let's ignore ragnarok as he's always divergent and plus we have his BlogPoll ballot to pick over. ttgiang is the winner due to his vote for Cal as #1, USC as #2, Miami at #5 and so on. Ok I'm going to stop here. BeastMode has LSU at #3, Florida at #4, Houston at #5, Michigan at #9, etc. The reason GBB appears is due to him voting for Houston in the top-5 (yeah!) and for voting Auburn, South Florida, UCLA and Arizona (?) all in.


The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...

  1. oskisunbear
  2. Ohio Bear
  3. Rated-R Superstar
  4. CaliforniaCMB
  5. racsan

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

Not much to say here but I'm stunned that CaliforniaCMB is on the list after voting for Cal at #1...
