Dropped Out: Iowa (#14), Illinois (#16), Nebraska (#19), Pittsburgh (#21), Clemson (#23).
- Boise shoots up the poll, and I didn't really intend for North Carolina to do the same, but it appears as though it has happened.
- Virginia Tech drops on the basis of "I was ranking them because I thought Tyrod Taylor would finally produce," and that assumption did not hold true.
- Oregon is still in the poll, though I think there's a possibility they really, really suck. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for one more week, on the basis that Boise might just be pretty good.
- Ohio State and Ole MIss drop for being unimpressive in wins (don't let the final of that Ole Miss game fool you: Nutt was just running up the score at the end. That was a close game well into the third quarter).
What looks amiss? I'll admit this was kind of rushed, so there are probably lots of problems with it. For the first couple weeks, I'm taking pre-season expectations into account, to go along with a resume ranking.
