After taking some constructive criticism in our Proofreadin' segment this week, I made two changes to the provisional ballot: Boise State is my #2 team this week and Kansas State was bumped in favor of NC State, who, as EToHReb point out, did not get embarrassed on national television last week.
Before getting to the ballot, here is a fun fact that makes it different from the AP poll: I left out two teams that the AP poll brought in (Florida and Oregon State). Here is a fun fact that makes me like the AP poll: I ranked South Carolina behind Alabama. The nerve of me! But, as I explained, before my Blogpoll ballot ever starts coming together I use five criteria to stratify teams. Alabama met four of those criteria; South Carolina only met one! Plus it will all wash out next week when Alabama tumbles in the poll after losing to Ole Miss, right?
Finally, in an effort to totally discredit myself, I have voted in the top spot a team that got not even one top vote from AP pollsters. Please leave a note in the comments section to inform me that you've decided to stop reading RCR because of my madness.
The ballot follows after the jump.
