Since there was no objections to my proposed ballot, let's take a look at the BlogPoll results. 89 out of 90 ballots had Alabama #1 after USC's loss, with the lone holdout being Black Heart Gold Pants, who had Stanford #1 with IOWA STATE #5.
Iowa State does seems much more loved in the BlogPoll than the AP or Coaches' Poll, getting up to #27 this week. My nod at #25 to the Cyclones almost looks self loathing compared to some of these gentlemen.
Andy Hutchins also does his weekly analysis thing here.
