So, our final ballot looks like our draft ballot, although atomsareenough pointed out to me that I've left out West Virginia; I suppose their dominating wins over Marshall and BYE have yet to impress me, but I seem to be the only one. I'll be on the lookout for an impressive performance this weekend against...James Madison? Oh well.
As always, thoughts and justifications after the jump:
atomsareenough: Lots of questionable performances by (formerly) ranked teams this week, and since it's early in the season, I decided to be fairly merciless about it. From my ballot last week, #8 Arkansas, #9 Oklahoma State, #12 Nebraska, and #13 Utah all lost to what were then unranked teams. Also Michigan just squeaked by Air Force at home, so they drop out from #20. You can't get by on name alone. I had already punished Wisconsin heavily last week by dropping them to #25, and they vindicated my decision with their poor showing at Oregon State, losing 7-10 in Corvallis. So, the Badgers are gone as well, making it six teams that I kicked off my ballot this week.
