Last week's ballot

 

Dropped Out: UCLA (#8), Houston (#11), Georgia (#13), Michigan (#22), Notre Dame (#23), South Carolina (#24).

All right, let's look at the damage

#1 & #2 Florida had bye weeks, so I didn't knock them down.  #3 Bama had a pretty good road win @ Kentucky.  #4 Boise stays unbeaten and #5 VT was iffy @ Duke this week.  #6 TCU wakes up after a long delay to beat SMU pretty good.  #7 Miami had their big victory over an overrated/hard luck Oklahoma squad.  #8 Nebraska had a bye.  #9 LSU should have lost to Georgia, but impressed on the road nonetheless.  #10 Cincinnati's offense and defense continues to roll.

#11 Oregon just keeps trucking along and their only loss is to Boise.  #12 SoCal impressed me with their road performance, and I think I had them ranked a little too low last week.  #13 Iowa continues to win games by the skin of their teeth.  #14 OSU didn't move anywhere (bye week).  #15 Auburn continues to impress me all-around in SEC play.  #16 Penn State is a good, not great Big 10 team.  #17 Georgia Tech continues to roll (they only lost @ Miami FL).  #18 Wisconsin is undefeated, barely.  #19 Ole Miss looked good @ Vandy.  #20 Ohio State keeps beating the teams they're supposed to.

#21 Brigham Young beat #22 Oklahoma and those teams are gonna stay there for a while.  Kansas, USF & Mizzou all haven't lost.  Dropped out were a bunch of pretenders.
