Here's the latest offering from Frogs O' War for the SBNation BlogPoll. Remember, Frogs O' War is one of the resume voters in the poll (we're glad the poll manager has caught on) so this ballot features a few departures from the common wisdom. Commentary below the jump.
The first departure is Alabama as top dawg. I'm choosing 'Bama over LSU simply because the Crimson Tide have not played a 2-A team, and LSU has. If I could vote a 1A and 1B, I would vote these two until one of them loses.
Next: Michigan. I'm on the blue and maize bandwagon until somebody stops them.
As to Oregon and Stanford, I just don't buy the resumes. And there isn't a game on their schedules that will help that, except of course when they play each other.
Kansas St: I know the Wildcats won-- that's one of the games I watched a good chunk of (now that my Horned Frogs are going to be conference mates with them). This week's demotion on my ballot (as any week's and any team's demotion on my ballot) is a product of KSU's resume as a whole. I value its best wins, as a group, slightly less than Illinois's best wins. It's not an exact science, but don't complain about top-12 ranking, you-who've-tasted-unrankdom-so-recently.
I'll reply to comments throughout the week.
