BLOGPOLL TOP 25: Should I Only Vote for Mid-Majors?

In light of recent events, I had to fight a severe urge to file a protest ballot for the SB Nation BlogPoll that consisted of nothing but mid-major (non-BCS) teams.

But somehow, despite my overwhelming disgust with the system, I managed to file a semi-objective ballot. Maybe next week is when I'll start making a mockery of the process.

You know, it's patently ironic: We fought so hard to be included in this poll, and less than a month into it, I find myself not giving a sh*t anymore. Thanks, college football power brokers. You've ruined the sport for me.

Rankings are after the jump. Tear them apart or cheer them, it makes no matter to me.

Turns out I wasting my time typing out a list when SB Nation provided this handy plug-in the whole time.

LSU stays at No. 1 because they have two wins over teams ranked in the Top 25 at the times. Oklahoma's road win carries fare more weight than Alabama's, so the Sooners jump the Crimson Tide for the time being.

Florida State's fall afforded me the opportunity to jump Wisconsin into the top five like I've been wanting to do for a while. Stanford and Texas A&M didn't go anywhere because they're just not passing the eyeball test for me.

Oklahoma State's defense is horrible, but I moved them up anyway because in this soon-to-be-nonexistent league, they're going to score so many points it probably won't matter, except against OU.

Michigan State flunked the eyeball test big-time, but I'll give them one last mulligan before dropping them out entirely. Clemson and Georgia Tech enter by virtue of dominating offenses, while Illinois squeaked in on defense.

Did you know that USC is the only team with three wins over BCS teams in its pocket? Strange tidbit, that.
