Blog Poll Draft...week 3

Well, I had to downgrade Boise from #2.  The Virginia Tech loss degrades the quality of their week 1 win, and then Alabama drilled Penn State pretty convincingly.  Oklahoma also takes a jump up with their convincing drilling of Florida State, also expected to be a pretty decent team.  Other than that and demoting teams that lost, I think it is pretty normal.

I had three vacancies, because I wanted Ga Tech, Va Tech and Notre Dame out.  So, I added South Carolina (for their defeat of Georgia), Michigan (two BCS wins), and Stanford, because there wasn't much too work with around this point.  From 17 down it is pretty much a crap shoot.

Utah took a big jump, and I'm not sure it needed to be that big.  They were #24, but they are undefeated and I wanted them ahead of the one loss teams.  I'll be thinking about that.

As always, if you think you can do better, pipe up in the comments.

What's with this Ohio State bias? :/

Interesting perspective....I actually can't stand Ohio State. But, I felt that with Alabama losing 10 defensive starters that they were overrated and OSU was the best team. So far, both OSU and Alabama have a big win, but I have the Bucks ranked slightly ahead.
