My ballot comparison verses the poll:

- I liked TCU more than Oregon on my ballot
- I had Nebraska as my top Big 12 school verse Oklahoma
- I don't like Florida nearly as much as the Poll does
- The Poll gave Arizona a lot more credit for their win over Iowa than I did. Although we punished the Hawkeyes similarly.
- I liked LSU more than the Poll does
- I'm not sure why Miami is getting so much love. Ohio State is good, but Miami was flat out awful in that game and doesn't deserved to be ranked IMO.
- And we have the Beavers instead of Miami

All in all, not bad for a first ballot. I'll keep this as a weekly feature and we'll see how I progress over the year. Would love your feedback on next week's ballot.
