Blog Poll Week #8 Ballot

The new Blog Poll is up, and this is my ballot for the week (and some comments added for absolutely no good reason whatsoever).

#1 - Southern Cal
In listing my rankings, I'm trying to follow the "who would I bet my money on" principle in situations where team's records and accomplishments are basically equal. I would bet on USC against either VT or UT, though only with a gun to my head. Thus, they are still #1.

#2 - Virginia Tech
Same principle as above, I'd very grudgingly bet on VT against UT.

#3 - Texas
They are going to play USC, so my ballot doesn't matter. Unless they lose or USC loses, VPI is screwed.

#4 - Georgia

(Click the picture for a video of UGA in action)

#5 - Alabama
Yoikes. Party in the Grove? Yes, please. Almost lose in Oxford? Not good, not good at all. They were badly missing Prothro, and it'll be interesting to see how the rest of the year goes.

#6 - Florida State
Not that I still believe in them ... but, they beat Miami and they beat BC and I refuse to rank them below those two teams ... and about this point in the ballot it just goes to hell because there's a bunch of teams who should be ranked #15 and yet you have to put people in the top 10. What an ugly season.

#7 - Miami
Lost to Florida State. Beat Colorado. Haven't lost in a few weeks so everyone has them going back up the polls. I have no idea why, but I don't trust this team at all. Now watch them go and hang another 50 on GT this weekend.

#8 - Boston College
This is a really boring team. Trying to excite everyone by almost losing to Wake Forest is the wrong way to go about changing that though.

#9 - Notre Dame

#10 - Louisiana State
Les Miles has about 2 weeks left before a drunk Cajun goes "Columbia soccer fan" on him.

#11 - Penn State
Williams being hurt is this team's equivalent to Prothro being out for 'Bama. Bad news city.

#12 - UCLA
Maurice Drew is for real. The Bruin defense is for real too. REAL BAD. 1,044 yards given up in

#13 - Texas Tech
See Dwayne Slay. See Dwayne Slay hit. Hide the women, children and any Wildcats you know.

#14 - Auburn
Er, wake me up when they play someone. On the bright side, they aren't losing to nobodies (HI LOUISVILLE).

#15 - Ohio State
Typical Cheatypants McSweatervest win - let the other team break down, kick a few field goals and escape.

#16 - Wisconsin
This team isn't good enough to be #16, but tell who's better. The bottom half the top 25 is putrid.

#17 - Michigan State
John L. Smith makes Chan Gailey coached teams look stable and consistent. Dear Lord.

#18 - Tennessee
This team is far better than they have played. Run the football for the love of God.

#19 - Minnesota
Bad, flukey loss. Of course, those kinds of losses could be officially titled "Gopher Specials" at the rate Minny racks them up.

#20 - Florida
Chris Leak is a shell of himself, his confidence is shattered and the offense is on the slow boat to nowhere. That offensive line has got to get itself fixed, and in a hurry, or Meyer is going to have to trade in the "genius" cap for the dunce cap.

#21 - Fresno State
Find 5 better teams for me to fill out the bottom of the top 25. Try.

#22 - West Virginia

#23 - TCU
Same principle as Fresno State. There's nobody better than them, and that loss to SMU is looking like an aberation.

#24 - Colorado
By far the best team in the Big XII North. Yes, that's how bad the rest of the league is.

#25 - Virginia
Someone has to be #25, and UVa has by far the best win of the contestants for this spot.

unless the soccer fan is from south carolina, it would be "Colombian" not Columbian.

Yeah, guess the spellchecker won't get that one.

But, based on the nature of USC-East fans ... that's actually pretty funny (and scarily accurate).

I don't like the ACC bowl arrangements, but that's not a secret.

BC is a better team than what should be in the Champs Sports Bowl, but that's probably where they will end up. If GT goes 7-4 (quite likely) then yeah ... more blue turf for us. God I hate Boise.

I am thoroughly disgusted by the doggie-porn video you have on your blog. If this video does not repulse you, you may wish to question your moral fortitude. For instance, for entertainmennt, do you like to watch Faces of Death 9, or perhaps, when you are feeling frisky, do you like to call your buddy over for a little kiddie porn? Just something to think about. And lastly, is the dog of legal age to have participated in such a video? Furthermore, can a dog consent?
