As always, comments are appreciated, and some commentary after the "more" and the full rankings on Page 2.

As usual, my poll is merciless to those who don't win. The huge swings ala Oklahoma usually cease once at least 5 games have been played. USC is back where they should be (Top 5), and it's starting to look a bit more in line with reality. LSU, Texas Tech, and Purdue dropped because they didn't play a game, which my poll tends to punish. I have a bit in the formulas to compensate for the "haven't played" effect but it could probably be tweaked upward.

And yeah, I was pleasantly surprised to see how feisty the Broncos were versus the Cavs. Hopefully you can start winning some other OOC and MAC games and solve this basement-dweller problem. :)

I know! My poll is cruel and indifferent that way. But hey, Virginia went down for winning, so that's something at least. :wink:

We push a Top 15 team to the wire, on their turf, and we slip two notches to #116? Blasphemy. :wink:
