Michigan State, a week after getting thoroughly destroyed by Ohio State, moves up 11 spots after beating a 2-5 team? Am I really reading that right?
Blogpoll Ballot Week 9 (Official)
Changes from the draft: Moved Minnesota down significantly, moved Boise back up, though that hinges on their win over Oregon. Said win was against Oregon's, like, fifth string QB or something and is a little dodgy. I futzed with the Big 12 teams at the end of the top ten, too.
Yea, that was discussed the other day when he posted his draft of the poll. He is having a hard time finding teams for the 11-25 spots. Every time he moves someone up, they lose. I would imagine that it is the same for other posters. They are 7-2 after all and still in the running for a BigTen Championship. They should beat Wisconsin and Purdue and if they can upset PSU then they are heading to the Rose bowl.
It's more that everyone else gave Brian a reason to drop them than that MSU gave him a reason to move them up a lot. (Also, I don't know if this had anything to do with Brian's vote, but I'd bet a lot of people expected the OSU loss to kick-start the traditional collapse and overreacted; when that didn't happen, undoing that drop is going to make them move up farther than one would expect.)
9 new additions? Looks like someone's in the mood for Mr. Manic-Depressive.
But seriously, looks a lot better than the draft, esp. Ok. State
