As I await the voters' ballots for this week, let's kill some time by finally posting the results from last week's BlogPoll.
There was quite a lot of turbulence last week. Six teams fell out, mostly due to ugly losses (Iowa to North Dakota State, Texas to California, Oregon to Nebraska, Oklahoma to Ohio State and Notre Dame to Michigan State).
Large jumps were seen, too, although they mainly were the product of voters adjusting their opinions rapidly to reflect new input and less due to impressive performances in Week 3. I'm looking at you, Miami, TCU and LSU.
Louisville and Michigan State jumped six spots apiece on the strength of their impressive victories, while mediocre wins by Clemson, Michigan and Wisconsin caused each team to slide two spots. I can't explain Tennessee at all.
Minnesota continues to hang on to its improbable No. 23 ranking, while Nebraska vaults into the rankings after not receiving a single vote the prior week. (In fairness, my individual ranking system suggested giving the Huskers a few points after the second week of games, but I didn't because I hate them so much. Yeah, I am a little biased.)
In this post, poll results again are once again posted without analysis, for obvious reasons of being ancient history:
Once again, your voters are myself, Jon Morse, JT VanGilder, Luke Thompson, PurpleBrunette, TheBigE, wildcat00 and KSUEMAW!
