SB Nation Blogpoll Draft Ballot: Week Eleven

Let me know if you disagree with anything.

1. LSU Tigers
2. Oklahoma St. Cowboys
3. Oregon Ducks
4. Oklahoma Sooners
5. Alabama Crimson Tide

Big shakeup here after Boise and Stanford fell. As I've said before, I don't believe in rematches; hence, although I believe Alabama is better than Oregon and Okahoma, I'm voting them below the Sooners and Ducks, one of which I would like to see get a shot at LSU, should OSU lose to Oklahoma. I hope the real voters do the same. Alabama got its chance and screwed the pooch.

6. Arkansas Razorbacks
7. Stanford Cardinal
8. Clemson Tigers
9. Virginia Tech Hokies
10. Houston Cougars

I'll move Ark. into the top five if they beat LSU; the Hogs have an outside shot at a national title if they can manage to do that. The rest of these teams are all good, but they're probably out of the running for a national title despite only having one loss. Houston is my new favorite mid-major, now that Boise has fallen.

11. Boise St. Broncos
12. Georgia Bulldogs
13. South Carolina Gamecocks
14. Michigan St. Spartans
15. Kansas St. Wildcats

Here we have Boise and the best two-loss teams. Georgia is coming on strong now, South Carolina continues to win, albeit in an ugly manner, Michigan St. appears to be the class of a very even Big 10, and K-State notched a nice win over Texas A&M, proving that they're for real.

16. Wisconsin Badgers
17. Nebraska Cornhuskers
18. Southern Cal Trojans
19. TCU Horned Frogs
20. Michigan Wolverines

This is the more average batch of two-loss teams. These are all good teams, but each has some warts.

21. Southern Miss. Golden Eages
22. Penn St. Nittany Lions
23. Georgia Tech Yellowjackets
24. Florida St. Seminoles
25. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Not really sure what to make of these teams. Most are inconsistent or unproven. FSU is an interesting one. This is a talented team that dropped some tough games early in the season and is now working its way back towards a good year. I'll also have to admit that I'm looking forward to the CUSA championship game for the first time ever. USM vs. Houston should be a good one.
