First poll results after a Cal week and... surprisingly we didn't see a drop off in voters!
|1||Ohio State (5)||--|
Others receiving votes:
West Virginia, California, Air Force, Oklahoma State, Michigan State, Temple, Florida State, Clemson, Missouri, North Carolina State, Virginia, Kansas State, Fresno State, Virginia Tech, Arizona State
Dropped out this week:
Biggest Difference from AP Poll:
Georgia Tech +10, Nevada +7, Arizona +5, Michigan State -5, Auburn -4, West Virginia -4
Naturally Cal drops out (but not completely!) while Nevada flies up the poll (including two first place votes) after a Cal loss to Nevada. We continue to be bullish on Arizona who is now considered a top-10 team. However the top 5 didn't change much other than Nebraska usurping TCU's spot. South Carolina and Stanfurd round up the other top-gainers while Iowa and Wisconsin lose ground. I find it funny that Wisconsin got dinged for barely beating ASU, yet ASU only gained a single vote.

The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...
- Georgia Tech
- Southern California
- Penn State
- Oregon State
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.
Nevada ranged from being ranked as #1 to the top-10s, to mid twenties to not being voted at all. Georgia Tech is another really weird team.
The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...
- 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.
Hey look it's the top-3!
The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...
- Missing Barry
- Ursa Major
This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed most from the overall Top 25.
Missing Barry takes his usual spot as the most divergent with votes for Nevada (#1), Alabama (UNR), Michigan (15), Temple (20), Clemson (22), Virginia (23) and Furd (25). What the hell? You know I honestly thought 4EverGolden would be on this list with his vote for Nevada at #1 but it looks like he barely missed out because he was barely beaten out by planetxerox (Florida 4, Furd 10, etc), Ursa Major (ASU 25, Kansas St 24, NC St 23, Florida 20, etc) and others.
The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...
- Ohio Bear
This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed the least from the overall Top 25.
Ok who is this fake?! He was remarkably similar to the poll results. In the top-5/6 he only had TCU, Nebraska and Boise flipped. His biggest different was probably voting for Virginia Tech at 25.
