Preliminary Week 8 BlogPoll Ballot

Three unbeatens go down and two more struggle on the road against bad teams, so there's a lot of reshuffling in this week's poll.

Full ballot is after the jump. Final version is due Tuesday morning.


  • Big drops for GT, Michigan and Illinois who suffered their first losses Saturday. Should Illinois get dropped more for getting stomped at home?
  • A few teams jumped South Carolina, which struggled mightily against Mississippi State and will now be without its best player for the rest of the season.
  • Oklahoma looked bad against a horrific Kansas team for the better part of three quarters before finally getting its act together. Meanwhile, Alabama cruised on the road against its horrible team, so Bama moves up one for this week.
  • Stanford jumps Boise State. The Cardinal have now won 14 in a row and have won their six games this season by an average of 35 points. Whether or not the Cardinal stay ahead of the Broncos depends on how they do this week against a decent Washington team.
