Last week's ballot

 

Dropped Out: Southern Cal (#17), Brigham Young (#23).

Thoughts:

Little movement at the top - TCU is for real though. They even have a growing quality win over potential ACC champ Clemson. They still need some upsets to get into the title game.

Gooey middle - No one in the middle of hte poll wanted to win this week. As a result there are wild fluctuations in the middle.

The Pac 10 makes a move - USC drops out entirely after getting pantsed at home. Stanford makes a big jump after another impressive win. Oregon State and Arizona still control their own destinies with remaining games against Oregon.

Pittsburgh making a BCS case - If not for an ugly loss to North Carolina State we'd have another de facto national semifinal at the end of the year against Cincinnati.

Anyone else have suggestions before the poll goes final?
