CGB Top-25 Week 2 Results

Yet another week of college football has passed us by. And what a week it has been.

1 Ohio State (6) 2
2 Alabama (13) 2
3 Oregon (1) 2
4 TCU (2) 2
5 Boise State 4
6 Nebraska --
7 Oklahoma 3
8 Iowa 1
9 Texas --
10 Florida 2
11 Wisconsin --
12 Utah 5
13 Arkansas 2
14 California (4) 6
15 LSU 6
16 Miami (Fla.) 4
17 Arizona 7
18 Southern California 2
19 Penn State 1
20 South Carolina 11
21 Oregon State 1
22 Michigan 7
23 Georgia Tech 9
24 Stanford 8
25 Auburn 1

Others receiving votes:
Florida State, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, North Carolina, Houston, Air Force, Brigham Young, Fresno State, West Virginia, Nevada, Missouri, Texas A&M, Washington, Texas Tech, Virginia, Washington State, Duke, UTEP, Temple

Dropped out this week:
Florida State, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, North Carolina

Biggest Difference from AP Poll:
California +15, West Virginia -13, Georgia Tech +10, Auburn +9, Arizona +7, South Carolina -7, Houston -7, Stanford -5


The "traditional powers" of Ohio State and Alabama retake the top spots in the poll wrenching it from Boise State and TCU's hand. Boise in particular was hit hard thanks to Virginia Tech's failure. Oregon jumps to number three thanks to their whoop ass in Knoxville. Other than that the biggest movements are in the bottom half of the poll with Cal, LSU, Arizona, Stanfurd, Michigan and South Carolina being the biggest gainers and Georgia Tech, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and North Carolina being the biggest losers. CGB's view of Cal is becoming closer to that of AP Poll's with the difference only 15 spots instead of the 24 last week.


The Biggest Sunshine Pumper Award goes to...

... royrules23, Missing Barry, Rocksanddirt, and C98, 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 and had copious amounts of sunshine pumping

My alter ego joins three perpetual Sunshine Pumpers in overreacting to Cal's two blow out wins.


The OMG Cal Sux Award goes to...

... Rated-R Superstar, and Ursa Major, 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

And here we see Rated-R Superstar who is notoriously hard to please. No matter that cal has won 104-10 the past two weeks.


The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...
  1. Auburn
  2. Stanford
  3. Michigan
  4. South Carolina
  5. California

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.

Can anyone genuinely tell me what Auburn has done in the past two weeks? Sure they beat Arkansas St and barely squeaked by Miss St, but I think the fact that show up sometimes but not others is demonstration of the fact that the bottom of the poll is hard to fill out.


The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...
  1. Oregon
  2. Alabama
  3. Arkansas
  4. Ohio State
  5. Nebraska

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.

Everyone is impressed equally with Oregon, 'Bama and Ohio State's wins to generally vote them all in the top-3. Arkansas is the mystery here. The biggest variation is DucksSuckQuackQuack's vote for Arkansas at 17 as opposed to to the 13 in the actual poll.


The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...
  1. BeastMode
  2. planetxerox
  3. royrules23
  4. Rocksanddirt
  5. TwistNHook

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

Finally a new algorithm to find the divergent voters. Thanks to all who helped me with that.
BeastMode is divergent thanks to his pick of Iowa at 16, Texas at 18, Michigan at 4, South Carolina at 5 and BYU at 9 (you do realize that BYU lost right...?). planetxerox voted for Air Force, Texas Tech, Missouri and Michigan to round out his bottom third.


The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...
  1. atomsareenough
  2. 4Ever Golden
  3. racsan
  4. Ohio Bear
  5. Whohah

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

atoms mostly picked the same teams as the CGB hivemind, at least for the middle of the top-25. His picks of Air Force at 25 and Auburn at 21 might be the biggest difference. 4Ever Golden not only provides great highlight videos, he is also in tune with the general voters here as he doesn't vary too much. In fact his lack of Air Force, his pick of the Furd at 25 and his choice of Oregon at 4 (instead of 2) are the biggest difference from atoms.
