BALLOTS - Week 8

EDITORS NOTE: Still feel odd.  Brain still not work want to make big word happen.  Still drink water and stare at screen.  Basically, I still feel like garbage.  I'll make things interesting soon.  And I'm starting to doubt it's swine flu and, no, I'm not hungover.  I think I just ate a bad, umm, piece of toast?

The BlogPoll Ballot is pretty cut and dry with very little contention amongst us Cuppers.

Last week's ballot

Other Receiving a vote: California

The SEC Power Poll, aside from where exactly to place Auburn and Kentucky was also pretty easy to ballotify.  Ivory Tower's snark is below.

  1. Alabama - Greg McElroy's 2009 season reminds me of what happens to Alka Seltzer (ed: I have no idea what in the hell you're trying to say here).
  2. Florida - Is this the part where the Almighty Tebow humbles himself so that he might be a great high priest for all those mediocre quarterbacks out there?
  3. LSU - Pride cometh, hopefully, before the fall.
  4. South Carolina - Zac Brown Band has a song about a dog named Pete - maybe a bloodhound, I don't know - that chases chickens around a redneck front dirt.  The music video will be filmed Satuday night at 7:45 in Knoxville.
  5. Ole Miss - Oh, hey there.  Just waking up?  Yep, it's almost November.  So, 'bout ready to take off your jammies, now?
  6. Tennessee - Corn don't grow at all on Rocky Top - soil's too rocky by far.  That's why folks on top of Rocky top get their dookie pounded in by gigantic black men from Alabama.
  7. Arkansas - After watching Ryan Mallet make beautiful throws all day long, his completion percentage (<40%) let me know just how many gassers the Razorback receivers need to run this week.
  8. Georgia - They didn't lose, did they?
  9. Auburn - Here's some irony for you:  it took a team coached by Les Miles to restore some sanity to the SEC West.
  10. Kentucky - Taking care of business against State will put the Wildcats in place to, potentially, finish their season in somewhere other than Shreveport, Memphis, or Nashville.
  11. State - Spread some of their fun to a dangerously regressed Florida offense.
  12. Vanderbilt - Someone called into the CSS program "Talkin' Football" and asked if Bobby Johnson's job was in trouble.  The answer:  no.  When you take Vanderbilt to a bowl game, your seat should be so averse to heat that even a two or three year SEC winless drought won't thaw out your butthole.
