MSC’s Preliminary Week 12 BlogPoll

By · Monday, November 17, 2008 · 2:33 AM |  Share | 1 Comment 

My BlogPoll for this week featured barely any change in the top 15 and lots of change with the final 10 spots.  Nothing I saw this weekend other than Florida’s beat down of South Carolina prompted me to alter the top 15.  After that, though, lots happened, specifically with the ACC.  The last five spots in the poll are ACC teams, and I ranked them in the order I did based on the losses each team has.  Maryland turned out to be the best of the bunch and got the 20th ranking, and Miami (Florida) was just on the outside looking in at spot #26.

If you have any thoughts or suggestions for my poll, leave a comment by Wednesday morning and I will take the advice into consideration when I submit my final ballot.

Here are some specific things to think about: Should Oregon be ranked in place of one of the ACC teams? Should Florida be ranked higher or lower than they currently are? Should Texas Tech or Alabama be #1? And finally, can anybody give me one reason why LSU deserves to be ranked? I’m not even considering putting them in my top 25, but I’d like to find out why the AP and USA Today polls think they are good enough to be #18 despite having no quality wins this season and needing an enormous comeback to beat Troy this past Saturday.

    -I’m totally with you on not ranking LSU. When I look at the top 25, I can’t imagine how they could possibly beat any of those teams. Also, Jarrett Lee is probably the worst QB I have ever seen at a real college.
    -The one thing that glares out at me though – especially if you don’t buy LSU – is how high you have Ball State ranked. They haven’t even played the two best teams on their schedule yet, and they’ve only played 1 team so far with a winning record (6-4 Navy). 1! I mean do you really think they could beat even FSU? Hell, Washington could probably be undefeated with BSU’s schedule.
