The Guru's BlogPoll ballot, with notes below:
* UCLA and Nebraska made reentries into my ballot, with the Bruins one spot ahead of the Huskers, a team they defeated two weeks ago. Michigan State dropped out afte a loss to Ohio State, as well as Rutgers, which was idle last week.
* You can begin to feel the separation, with Alabama and Oregon clearly the two best teams in the country, and the rest. We'll see if that holds up the rest of the season.
* Conference-by-conference tally: SEC (6), Big 12 (5), Pac-12 (5), Big Ten (3), ACC (2), MWC (1), MAC (1), WAC (1), Independent (1).
