Blogpoll Ballot: Week 8

It's blogpoll ballot time, so here is this week's ballot for your perusal:

More analysis after the jump:

  • As usual, the ten remaining undefeated teams take the top ten spots. The Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State troika will sort itself out, as will Alabama LSU. And before you ask, no, I won't have the LSU-Alabama loser #2 if it's a real close game. If you can't even win your division you don't deserve to play for the National title.
  • Michigan and Illinois take the big fall. I kind of felt they were paper tigers, but they have proven to be solid, but flawed.
  • I have too put Penn State here. You can't argue with 6-1.
  • Washington is quietly a pretty good team this year.

Finally, there is the administration of the Hammer & Rails pick 'em:
