Guess who made the biggest jump in BlogPoll history?
The 2012 Week 2 BlogPoll, which actually appears in Week 3 and is labeled accordingly even though it chronicles Week 2 results, has been released.
Also worth reading are Samuel Chi's simulated BCS standings and Spencer Hall's scathing indictment of this week's coaches poll.
Check out the combined efforts of 91 bloggers after the jump. My brief analysis follows. For statistics about the balloting, click here.
As on my ballot, BlogPoll executed the LSU-USC swap this week. But the voters seem to think more of Missouri than I do, pushing Georgia up to No. 5 for beating the Tigers. They obviously don't know Gary Pinkel very well.
West Virginia's three-spot slip was the largest of any team that didn't fall out of the poll, thus proving that it doesn't pay not to play. After that, it's nothing but a sea of green as teams rise to fill gaps vacated by Week 2's losers.
Our Cats made the third-biggest jump, to No. 12, surpassed only by teams that weren't ranked last week (Florida and UCLA). Other teams experiences more modest increases.
Michigan's not making any friends, sliding down two spots after a victory. That's most likely due to balloteers such as me who have the Wolverines unranked entirely. Arizona, Ohio and Tennessee are new to this week's poll, too.
