We've stated our case for Oregon as No. 2 more than once. We even had a commenter say they should be No. 1. Of course, that has to mean SB Nation's Top 25 has the Ducks at No. 3., thanks to the continued rise of Kansas State.

Florida's loss to Georgia opened up the No. 2 spot, allowing the Wildcats to jump two spots while the Gators fell to No. 7. Georgia jumped nine spots to No. 6, while other big risers included South Carolina (up six to No. 11) and Nebraska (up eight to No. 21), as well as Arizona and UCLA, who each soared 15 spots to Nos. 24 and 25, respectively.

As far as the ballot watching goes, B5Q earned only one distinction this week. Our Swing value of 70 was 20 points lower than anyone else's, garnering the ire of BlogPoll guru Andy Hutchins.

# Blog Team Ballot Swing
1 Bucky's 5th Quarter Wisconsin Badgers ballot 70
2 Garnet and Black Attack South Carolina Gamecocks ballot 90
3 And The Valley Shook! LSU Tigers ballot 92
4 Let's Go Rockets Toledo Rockets ballot 96
5 The Ralphie Report Colorado Buffaloes ballot 98

I don't even know if B5Q watches the games anymore. No team moved more than seven spots from last week in their ballot. C'MON, GET WITH THE OVERREACTION.

What can we say, Andy. We're occupied trying to comprehend the fact that our trip to Indiana in two weeks is suddenly A Real Huge Game.
