Writeup at SB Nation. The CK Award is so terrifying this weeks winner ranked Arkansas #12, which is exactly where they are in the poll.

For those also paying attention to it, the CK formula has been wrong quite a bit lately. Brian now knows.

The reason I point this out, SpartyMSU definitely overranked MSU by ONE WHOLE POSITION. That would had won (supposedly) this week. Not that I'm trying to invoke the CK curse or anything...

The continued presence of Utah (and LSU) is indeed unconscionable.

 

I am quite surprised at the monolithic Bama support, given the pantsing Oregon gave to Stanford.

There seem to be a lot of kinks in the BlogPoll.

For example, if you look at Alabama's vote distribution, it shows 110 first place and 3 second place votes. Assuming everyone voted for Alabama at some spot (and I have no reason to suspect anyone isn't, nor the time to verify that they did), that's 113 total first place votes available. In your post, you note that there are only 107 first place votes (of which Alabama has 108), and the table shows 110.

Also, the CK Award is totally botched somehow, as noted by FA above. I think some Penn State voter had them at 17 last week and would have won in a landslide compared to who was actually listed on the CK leaderboard (which would have had the side effect of resulting in another CK casualty).
