CBS Sports Blog Poll Top 25 Ballot #5 - Final Ballot

New, 4 comments

I made some changes to my final ballot, the most notable of which was adding Houston back in after missing them the first time around (no excuse for that).

Also moved some other teams around. It's amazing what happens with a slight change in the poll, if you forget a team (as I did), or get someone out of place, re-shuffling can be quite interesting. Throw one team in there and suddenly you're trying to make sure they're in the exact right place, then move another and suddenly Iowa is in front of Nebraska or something hideous like that..... or maybe Iowa belongs in front of Nebraska because they went on the road and beat a highly ranked team.... but Penn State didn't really deserve their ranking in the first place, while Virginia Tech's stomping of Miami proved that they could at least beat a team with some speed. See all the angst and frustration that this can cause?
