Ballot Detail

Ballot Type: human

Overall Rationale:
Human poll relying mostly on Resume, SoS, and MoV. Eye-test used sparingly, and only in situations with similar bodies of work for the season. I try to actively negate poll inertia and allow strong movements up and down if the resume doesnt support your placements after the win or loss, with 2 results in a row resulting in much larger movement, etc.

Rank Team Reason
1 Georgia Bulldogs Even if Alabama barely won the A&M game, UGAs margin of victory against ranked teams is superb, and was enough to take the number 1 spot.
2 Iowa Hawkeyes
3 Cincinnati Bearcats
4 Oklahoma Sooners With the benching of Spencer Rattler, this team looks solid. Not sure where they belong in the 3-6 range, but they were undefeated with a very questionable Rattler. With a SUPERIOR (fight me) Williams at the helm, i dont doubt they deserve top 4 going forward.
5 Michigan Wolverines
6 Ohio State Buckeyes
7 Alabama Crimson Tide Somewhere in 5-7 range. OSU margin of victory is a good amount better than Bama's, and their loss is better than Bamas. I imagine if bama wins out it wont matter and theyll get in the final 4.
8 Penn State Nittany Lions Roberson isnt very good, and PSU still managed to hold on for just a 3 point loss. If clifford was in the whole game, i think PSU wins. Alas, clifford wasnt in the whole game. PSU is interchangeable with Oregon at the moment, as both of their losses were somewhat due to bad luck, and going foward with Clifford i expect PSU to be able to challenge the best of the B1G.
9 Oregon Ducks
10 Michigan State Spartans
11 Oklahoma State Cowboys
12 Kentucky Wildcats
13 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers I have no idea where they belong. Blasting all opposition besides 1 game, but all their opposition isnt necessarily impressive. They could win out and i still wouldnt know if they deserve to be higher.
14 Ole Miss Rebels
15 Wake Forest Demon Deacons
16 BYU Cougars
17 Notre Dame Fighting Irish
18 Arizona State Sun Devils
19 NC State Wolfpack
20 SMU Mustangs
21 Arkansas Razorbacks
22 Baylor Bears
23 San Diego State Aztecs
24 Florida Gators
25 Texas A&M Aggies
