Blogpoll -- Who Is # 2?

Apologies for the lack of updates this week. Life catches up to us not for profit bloggers sometimes.

Anyway, here is the new blogpoll ballot. The results will come out shortly this morning and can be found on the right sidebar. I struggled mightily with who to put in the number two slot, after USC was shocked last weekend. Is it Cal? Ohio State? Has South Florida done enough to earn that spot?

For now, I go with Cal, in part because I think the Big Ten is the weakest BCS Conference and the PAC 10 is the strongest, though the lover of underdogs in me wanted to place the South Florida Bulls in that coveted spot.

In other surprising developments, Indiana and Illinois make their initial appearances on the ballot, in a sure sign that college football is insane this year.

Question for the peanut gallery: Who is your #2? And are Indiana, Purdue and Illinois the best the Big 10 has to offer after Ohio State?

Kansas State loses a nailbaiter against No. 20 Kansas....yet kicks the crap out of Texas and somehow finds itself behind Texas?

Ohio State beats YOUR No. 13 team Purdue and still falls three spots? Was it USF's domination of Florida Atlantic that caused that?

#4 anon....good question. OSU's placement was determined based upon my belief that the Big 10 is by far the worst conference in the country and that I don't think they are better than any of the teams above them.
