What do these teams have in common: Nebraska Cornhuskers, Wisconsin Badgers, Arkansas Razorbacks, Oklahoma St. Cowboys, Illinois Fighting Illini, Michigan Wolverines, Tennessee Volunteers, Nevada Wolf Pack? All but one of them (Tennessee) lost, and all but two of them lost unexpectedly. Especially Wisconsin and Arkansas.
But what they all have in common is that they did not merit inclusion in Frogs O' War's combined ballot for this week's SBNation BlogPoll.
Big risers this week were South Carolina, Georgia, Northwestern, and Oregon State. West Virginia tumbled seven spots, but none of those falls compared to Wisconsin's fall, all the way out of the poll.
Ahh- early season polling; it's a volatile art.
