Trust us, We’ve got Excel spreadsheets and shit.

Thoughts (Buckeye Ninja) -┬áThe top 5 remains unchanged and everything else basically gets shuffled around a bit. Four teams made our top 25 from the B1G, and a fifth (Wisky) is sitting just outside. They might make it into the poll in time for the game in two weeks. We shall see. YOB is still more bullish on the middle of the SEC ┬áthan we are – outside of LSU and Alabama all we see are several good but not great teams. The only reason they’re ranked as highly as they are is simply that no one is any better this year. More on this phenomenon later.
