BlogPoll 2010: Week 8 Final Ballot and Top 25

This is shaping up to be one of the crazier years in college football as the big swings from week-to-week have been evidence. I went with Oregon in the 1 slot, but you could argue for any of the Top-3. I don't how anyone could justify slotting Boise St. any higher, let alone ahead of TCU, the Broncos essentially hit their peak this week and will start falling behind one-loss teams very shortly. The one chance Boise St. had was if Nevada otherwise ran the table and that's out of play now. TCU could have a legitimate case for a BCS Championship by the end of the year, but it's slim and needs help from other teams losing. If Michigan St. gets past Iowa in a they'll leap ahead significantly and LSU is going to test it's luck against Auburn and Bama, so keep an eye out for some big movement by November. Oklahoma St. and Missouri also get to demonstrate how good they really are as they enter the meaty portion of their schedules and could be fast risers to watch as well.

[*The full top 25 takes up a bunch of room, plus the top ten is all that really matters. So here's the abbreviated version.]
