Dropped Out: Alabama (#15), Arkansas (#19), Louisville (#24).

Remember that I don't look at previous ballots in an effort to reduce poll inertia, so some of the up-down stuff may not make complete sense. I much prefer arguments that don't consider the previous poll to be some sort of holy gospel: it was last week's guess and this is this week's guess, which may or may not be accurate.

Points of issue:

  • UCLA? Yeah. I mocked Orson for including them last week but I watched their game against Washington and they were fairly impressive even without their starting quarterback. Chalk the Utah thing up to Dorrell being Dorrell.
  • Oregon still has no D. They might not need one, though.
  • Do not fuck with the CK award. GT took the pipe and so did Alabama. Just don't do it.

Comments and such will be considered; I have been adjusting my ballots this year but haven't had time to post the revised editions.
