My thanks go out to everyone who provided feedback on my preliminary BlogPoll ballot draft. Due to your arguments, the only ACC team I have ranked fell even farther than before. At the end of the day, therefore, my top 25 looks like this:
The LSU Tigers and the Clemson Tigers both received consideration, but only due to absolute necessity. The only game I attended this weekend was a high school football game on Friday night, but I watched all or significant portions of the following on television: Auburn-Mississippi State, Houston-UTEP, Georgia-South Carolina, Florida State-Oklahoma, LSU-Vanderbilt, Alabama-Penn State, Oregon-Tennessee, and Stanford-UCLA, along with bits and pieces of Marshall-West Virginia, Michigan-Notre Dame, and Miami-Ohio State.
