College Football Rankings, Week 9: Cam Newton's Auburn Tigers Top BlogPoll Ballot Until Further Notice

What is the BlogPoll?

The BlogPoll is structured exactly like the AP and Coaches' polls, except the voting members are active bloggers who write about college football.

How does it work?

Voters submit a draft ballot on Monday that they post on their site. They then solicit feedback from their readers and submit a revised ballot early Wednesday. These ballots are then compiled into the poll Wednesday afternoon.

You can have your flash card offense capable of dropping a point a minute on the second-best football team in Los Angeles. I'll take Auburn's list of accomplishments over anybody's. For the second week in a row, the Tigers hold down the top spot in my college football rankings. Beyond the top six, everything is up for a little tweaking. If you see any disastrous mistakes you'd care to correct for us, let 'er rip. This is supposed to be a community ballot, after all.

Baylor and Hawaii join us this week because the top 25 should be more like a top 22.5. USC also climbs back aboard, and I don't know if Nebraska was here last week or not, but I don't think they were, and I don't really like heaving them back up into the 20's based on a win over an overrated Okie State team and little else. See? There's one thing that needs fixing already.

West Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada, and Oregon State leave us. The first two lost, Nevada lost last week and somehow clung to a spot due to a typo or something, and I'm just kind of sick of trying to find a spot for Oregon State.

Also considered: ECU, Syracuse, Clemson, Northwestern, Maryland, Navy, N.C. State, and Michigan. But not Virginia Tech, as they lost to James Madison. Maybe next week. Maybe.
