Week Six Blogpoll Ballot Has Me Feeling Like Jack's Medulla Oblongata

Who the fuck knows anything about anything anymore? It just makes it all the more important to have a dart board and a 12 pack of beer handy if your going to try to put together a top 25 these days! Leave comments if you think something needs to change between now and 10 am Wednesday. Or just leave comments whenever you feel like it. We're easy here.

The ballot looks all f'd up because I didn't get my ballot in last week. Plus since the move over here with my fellow bastards, (well I guess I'm still a bastard in training since we never discussed when the trail period would end) I guess all my data from that other blog didn't make it's way over.

Justification: I think most the ballot doesn't really need any words, but there are a few items I want, and I use that word loosely, to touch on.

5. Florida- You can not fuck with Erik! You can not fuck with that man! When he walks off the bus, he brings all his tools with him. If you're too lazy to follow the link, he basically says that he would take Florida against anyone below number five. And I agree. So that's how that works.

9. South Florida- I don't feel right about this pick. I know for a fact that they are going to lose at least one game this year besides their bowl. For God's sake, they almost lost to FAU!!!..... FAU!!!

13. Va. Tech- No really, I put them here. It's wasn't a mistake. They just made Clemson look silly. Which isn't as much of a trick these days. It wasn't so much what their offense did, but everything else. A team that can play good special teams and hold on to the ball should have no trouble beating this team. But for now they look like lucky number 13 to me.

25. Maryland- Two quality wins in a row and a 4-2 record is good enough to make it into the top 25.

1 LSU 25
2 California 24
3 Ohio State 23
4 Boston College 22
5 Florida 21
6 Oklahoma 20
7 South Carolina 19
8 Oregon 18
9 South Florida 17
10 Illinois 16
11 West Virginia 15
12 Southern Cal 14
13 Virginia Tech 13
14 Missouri 12
15 Cincinnati 11
16 Kentucky 10
17 Auburn 9
18 Wisconsin 8
19 Virginia 7
20 Texas 6
21 Michigan 5
22 Florida State 4
23 Hawaii 3
24 Kansas 2
25 Maryland 1

Dropped Out: This is one of the parts that is fucked up.

Games I watched:
South Carolin-Kentucky
Va. Tech-Clemson

It's something you have to get in on at the beginning of the year. For now, blog your ass off and as next year approaches, go over to MGOblog and there is a place to sign up.

I think it could be fun, but maybe too much work for me. My bias is too strong to rank teams appropriately.

Hey JJ, I didn't know I was so fucking awesome! Thanks!

Hey Johnny, I think the One Known as Ned, one of this nation's heroes, featured in your picture there, actually played/plays for the Ultimate Fight League team Florida International, not Florida Atlantic.

But God bless Ned. Its good to see his picture on our humble blog.

yeah, I knew I f'd that up (look I don't always say fuck! hehehe) but I love that picture so much! I just decided to go with it. Plus I was less than sober when i wrote it. And I don't know if that is an excuse or a justification, but I like it!
