The latest SB Nation BlogPoll is out and the Alabama Crimson Tide now hold a commanding lead with 88 first place votes, and as expected no Mountain West teams. Boise State is still a fringe team just on the outside looking in. However, if you are a MAC fan then you are in luck as they make it an appearance at No. 25.
Our ballot this week had a huge swing that ended up being the third most out of any site. We are no where near BHGP, as they crush the competition. Our movement into this area is because on my half I dropped TCU, Florida State and Arkansas from the rankings. While moving up Oregon State, Louisiana-Monroe and UCLA into the rankings.

With a two-person poll, Chris' formula evens out some of my wackiness for dropping teams who play FCS opponents way down the list. Eventually teams like Florida State and TCU will make their way back into the rankings at some point.
