Gobbler Country's Preliminary Week 14 BlogPoll Ballot

New, comments

Craziness. Final ballot is due Wednesday morning, so you have until then to get in your complains, suggestions and reasonings.

Games Watched: Texas A&M at Texas, West Virginia at Pittsburgh, Auburn at Alabama, Arizona at Oregon, Boise State at Nevada, Virginia at Virginia Tech, NC State at Maryland (50%), LSU at Arkansas (50%), Oklahoma at Oklahoma State.



  • I still have Oregon over Auburn, but man was this difficult. Auburn got a big, big road win against Alabama in an impressive comeback. Meanwhile, the Ducks blew out Arizona at home. Right now I favor the Ducks because their offense is just blowing everyone away. I can be swayed by a good argument, though. Auburn's been played closer this year, but by better competition.
  • The same goes for Wisconsin over Stanford. If there were a reason to root against Auburn in the SECCG other than Cam Newton's eligibility questions, its that a loss by the Tigers would basically guarantee us a Wisconsin-Stanford Rose Bowl, which would be amazing. I'll take the Badgers because right now there aren't a whole lot of teams I think could beat them and their defense is a touch better than Stanford's.
  • Oklahoma makes a big jump after a second consecutive impressive road win. They blew out Baylor, which isn't a horrible team this year and then beat an OSU team that on paper was a better team going into that game. 
  • Elsewhere: How much should Nevada move up for beating Boise State? How much should Alabama and Oklahoma State move down for losing at home to good teams?
