Overall the movement was based on the losses. Our ballots are starting to look similar in that there were only two teams that someone had on their ballot that didn't make the top 25 as opposed to earlier in the year when we had upwards of 10. Let's look at the comparison.

At the Top
Swap out a Clemson for a South Carolina and our top ten's are the same. Stanford is higher on the Blog Poll but other than that pretty in sync.

In the Middle
We were harder on Wisconsin that the blog poll. And I think that's mostly cause we all lost money on them, again. Bastards! And we like Cincinnati a little more than the poll. Otherwise it's pretty comparable.

At the Bottom
We had USC higher. We agreed on WVU and both have So. Miss. We are still uncertain about GT (which was just outside the top 15 on our ballot) and we invited Texas back to the party.

If you're interested here are our individual ballots.
