Dropped Out: Navy (#18), Michigan State (#23), Florida State (#24).
Okay, 1 through 6 are the same. I don't really believe in dissecting the exact quality of wins, and all of these teams played and beat mid-range-ish conference teams without anything too exceptional happening. Auburn played some cannon fodder, but they are riding on a good resume of BCS victories, so they're cool.
Cal shooting up 13 places after a win seems a bit excessive, but it was more of a correction for my ranking of them last week. With their blowout loss and a week three game against some unnamed bitch school, I got vengeful and banished Cal from my rankings. After beating Arizona State, and convincingly, they have a wins over two solid BCS schools, which is more than can be said for almost all of the teams ranked below them. So there.
Texas continues to get "hated upon", I guess. I'm sure that Texas is a fine football squad, but they only have one real win against a middling conference team. If they start rolling through conference play, they'll shoot up the polls, but for now their resume is crap.
West Virginia plummets because I finally got sick of looking at their schedule. I was fine to let them slide by, as everyone was feasting on cupcakes, but the season is a third over and I became very wrathful when I saw Marshall, unnamed Bitch, Maryland, and East Carolina on the resume. Let's talk when you've played a football team.
24 and 25 are my vanity picks for surprising underdogs who have stirred up some noise.
