So after I updated the efficiency stats I tweaked a couple of spots. BSU dropped below Auburn, Mizzou and TCU. Those teams schedules were better or comparable and they are equally if not more efficient teams. Oklahoma leaped Alabama and Arizona move over Stanford.

Now, lets look how we did.

The Top
I punished Boise more than the poll. Mizzou has had a better schedule and is more efficient than Michigan State. Nobody really knows what to do with Utah, still. Oklahoma is equally as efficient as Bama but has played a better schedule.

The Middle
Move a couple teams around and it's about the same. LSU schedule has been tougher and they get dinged in the poll a bit thanks to Les and his game management. I also don't think Arizona is getting enough credit. They are a very efficient team and have played a good schedule. I'm still high on Nevada, but when a WAC team has a bye, they fall away.

The Bottom
Look Va Tech lost to an FCS team. They don't belong in the poll, yet. Hawaii and Nevada have played better schedules and haven't lost to and FCS team. Sorry Hokies. Baylor, eh. Their schedule is worse than the other two and they're not that efficient of a team comparable.

All in all, still tracking with the nation at large. Hooray for me!
