Poll Results: Week Four BlogPoll and SEC Power Poll

John David Mercer-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Alabama is still the number one team on SB Nation's BlogPoll, but the gap is shrinking.

The Crimson Tide are still the best team in college football, per the consensus of the SB Nation BlogPoll voters, but a handful of other teams are picking up number one votes due to impressive performances in week four.

Oregon has a pair of votes for shutting out Arizona, Florida State got a vote for beating up on Clemson, Kansas State earns a vote for beating Oklahoma (who took an eleven spot tumble, by the way), Stanford has two votes because "oh yeah, they beat USC a couple of weeks ago", Notre Dame has a number one vote via Monte Te'o intimidating a voter into submission, and Florida has a vote because someone was drunk and slipped them into first place instead of Florida State.

Okay, jokes and stuff. I don't know exactly why people vote the way they do which is why democratic institutions are simultaneously fun and frustrating. Regardless, here's the current top-25.

By the way, I do appreciate and welcome the constructive criticism given to my ballot earlier this week. The more y'all do that, the more the ballot becomes "Red Cup Rebellion's ballot" and not "Ghost's really stupid ballot," which is nice.

Andy Hutchins' full analysis of the poll is here. There's more stuff after the jump, y'all.

The SEC Power Poll results are as follows, with full analysis coming right here:

1. Alabama Crimson Tide, 154 points (unanimous)
2. LSU Tigers, 138
3. Georgia Bulldogs, 134
4. South Carolina Gamecocks, 122
5. Florida Gators, 112
6. Mississippi St. Bulldogs, 96
7. Texas A&M Aggies, 86
8. Tennessee Volunteers, 79
9. Missouri Tigers, 66
10. Auburn Tigers, 49
10. Mississippi Rebels, 49
12. Vanderbilt Commodores, 36
13. Arkansas Razorbacks, 17
13. Kentucky Wildcats, 17

We're tied with Auburn and NOT LAST which is pretty great, y'all.

Now here is where I typically share with you some of the other great SB Nation dot com content from the past few days but there does not appear to be the usual material from the usual suspects. Blame it on the (totally worthwhile) time vacuum of a complete overhaul of the network if you will. There is Brian Cook's Week in Schadenfreude which, as we've come to expect, makes light of the ongoing botched enema some folks are calling Arkansas Razorbacks football, so it's worth a look. Still, there's no numerical or alphabetical. Maybe next week.
