|Last week's ballot|
Dropped Out: North Carolina (#20), Mississippi (#22), Temple (#25).
The Alabama-Florida flip-flop is based solely on each team's play the previous weekend. Frankly, Alabama looked good in beating Auburn, who isn't a bad team, but Florida absolutely demolished their rival and hit on virtually all cylinders in doing so. You have to give them the nod for now. Frankly, the order of these teams is meaningless because we've known for a while that they'd be going head-to-head on a neutral field for the SEC title this Saturday.
This is the nightmare scenario for the BCS. Unless Nebraska shocks the world and beats Texas in what should be a virtual home game for the Longhorns, we're staring at the very real prospect of five unbeaten teams plus an impressive one-loss SEC title game loser.
Of course, this won't stop the anti-playoff morons from continuing to advance their "meaning of the regular season," "academics," and "how many teams would you take to make it work?" non-sensical rambles.
