The Also Rans

With four new teams making an appearance on the ballot this week, we had to say good-bye to the most teams since week 3. Michigan State goes bye-bye with it's two losses and struggles against Indiana. TCU get's replaced by the team that toppled it, Iowa State. UCLA drops off after it totally screwed my five team parlay at Cal. Bastards! And Northwestern drifts off to obscurity after falling to Penn State.

Movers and Shakers
There were a lot of mini-movers this week. One of the bigger jumps came from South Carolina for proving their worth against Georgia. But the Mover of the week goes to Texas AM, who jumps from the darkness of  the 26+ to number 18 on the list. Welcome Aggies. Let's hope that #20 doesn't get the best of you this weekend.

OOOOOOHHHHHHH NV Nole. Florida State is our Shaker this week. Don't worry everyone, SEC Guy and I both checked on him on shortly after the Noles fell to NC State. He is alive and fairly well.

Sliced Bread and The Slap Chop
As the season wears on we'll continue to see the Sliced Bread list grow. This week we have four teams that we have hive-minded: (1) Alabama, (2) Oregon, (14) Oklahoma and (16) USC. Although the OU and USC thing creeps me out a little.

This week's Slap Chop goes to Oregon State. For some reason SEC Guy has the Beavers at 21. Maybe he's projecting since they lost their starting QB. Or he could just be totally sleep deprived.

The WTF Vote of the Week
This week's WTF Vote of the week goes to the SEC Guy. Not just for the undefeated, two top 25 wins, fifteenth toughest ranked schedule Oregon State placement at 21, but the inclusion of Boise State at 20. Must have been that huge win at 0-5 Southern Miss. Get some sleep and, What The Fuck?
