Not a lot of surprises other than I left Arkansas off my ballot so I fixed that. Winfield misspelled Illinois and Jesse was away for the Draft ballot. Here are his thoughts:
Jesse: The top eight stay the same with the exception of my swapping OKST and Oregon. OKST is straight ballin right now and I’m not sure Oregon could keep up with them. After that, I dropped FSU and Iowa from the poll completely. I tried giving them both a chance to stay, but you can’t lose to Wake and Iowa St and expect to stay in with additional losses. Filling the two open spots at the bottom of the poll are *ack* ND and uga. Both have rebounded from early season losses and, having not seen the uga-TN game, both have been winning by decent margins.
As for us, I left us alone at 12. We won an ugly game and that’s good enough to hold steady for the moment. However, this trend with Washington doing his worst Ball/Days lovechild impression has to end or we are in for a serious drop. His throws have been off the mark and look worse than a duck shot with an RPG. His decision making running the ball has gotten just as bad as Days and his comments after the game are disconcerting. Hopefully things will improve.
