Ballot Type: human

Overall Rationale:
Tier System. 2 loss teams are now eligible for my ballot as long as they have played at least 6 games.

Rank Team Reason
1 Georgia Bulldogs S Tier (The best team in college football. That defense is legit)
2 Iowa Hawkeyes A Tier (The defense is great, especially at forcing turnovers, but the offense may cost them in the long run. For now they have played their way into the A Tier)
3 Cincinnati Bearcats B Tier
4 Oklahoma Sooners B Tier
5 Alabama Crimson Tide B Tier (They made Texas A&M's offense look good. It seems unlikely they'd beat Georgia in the SEC Championship.)
6 Oregon Ducks B Tier (I don't really think Oregon is the 6th best team and they'd probably lose to OSU if they played right now but they won when the game was played so as long as they have the same number of losses as OSU, I won't drop them below OSU.)
7 Ohio State Buckeyes B Tier (Arguably the most improved team from week 1 to now.)
8 Michigan Wolverines B Tier (Michigan has had 2 near losing collapses in the second half of the past 3 games. I won't put them ahead of the one loss teams in front of them until they beat a good team or show total domination of a middle of the pack B1G team.)
9 Penn State Nittany Lions B Tier
10 Kentucky Wildcats C Tier (Kentucky is undefeated but hasn't been that impressive in their wins except for the one against LSU. They have Georgia coming so we will find out a lot more about there.)
11 Michigan State Spartans C Tier (Undefeated but I have this feeling that of the top 5 B1G teams, MSU is the worst one. They have the chance to prove me wrong in a few weeks against Michigan.)
12 Oklahoma State Cowboys C Tier
13 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers C tier
14 Wake Forest Demon Deacons D Tier
15 Ole Miss Rebels D Tier
16 BYU Cougars D Tier
17 Notre Dame Fighting Irish D Tier
18 Arkansas Razorbacks D Tier (Saved from dropping by lower by having the head to head win over the team one spot below them while having the same number of losses.)
19 Texas A&M Aggies D Tier
20 NC State Wolfpack E Tier
21 SMU Mustangs E Tier
22 San Diego State Aztecs E Tier
23 Arizona State Sun Devils E Tier
24 Baylor Bears E Tier
25 UTSA Roadrunners F Tier
