The Blog Poll is out and flowering with analysis.

It's wonderous is it not? Let's see how we did.

At The Top
All in all things stayed pretty consistent with all the top teams winning. Of course we prefer KState to Arkansas mostly on the strength of my ballot (I have them at 7).

In the Middle
For the most part similar. We liked SCAR a lot more (we didn't factor in the Lattimore loss) as well as Auburn and Illinois. And the Blog Poll stuck with TAMU.

At the Bottom
Even the bottom is shaping up. Trade our two Pac 12 teams and the poll at least as the same teams. We opted for a one-loss USC team to a two loss ASU team.
