As you can see, this week's all about the dropouts. Some pretty big names -- our own Badgers, as well as Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Arkansas -- are finally all gone. I say "finally," because I caught some flak last week for leaving Wisconsin and Arkansas on my ballot. After some thought -- and after seeing both teams play on Saturday -- I agreed the Badgers and Razorbacks are not poll-worthy teams. Arkansas, as I think you'll agree, shouldn't even sniff a Top-25 spot.
Even with the upsets this week -- namely USC, Michigan State and Virginia Tech -- I feel fairly confident in the upper half of my blog. The bottom, especially from No. 18 or so on, is where I start to question myself.
We have time to adjust our ballots before voting closes tomorrow, so I ask you: how's that bottom half look? Especially Nos. 20-25, I'm open for discussion. Feel free to share you're own Top 25s too in the comments -- I'm more than OK admitting I don't get to see enough of all these teams to elicit full confidence in my ballot.
