-- I've seen snippets of every team in the poll except (I'm not counting highlights, naturally): Florida, Tennessee, Louisville, Purdue, Texas Tech
-- No changes in the top three, although, like everyone else, I'm a little concerned about LSU after watching them give up a ton of passing yards to ASU.
-- I was impressed with Ohio State despite the loss, so I didn't penalize them for it.
-- Not surprisingly, Notre Dame is the big jumper. I'm not sold on them as a top ten team, but I had to get the Irish in before Michigan...and I didn't want to drop Michigan any lower.
-- Purdue had a "hmm...interesting" game (which, in this case, is not good) this week. I am gonna wait and see.
-- ATL boob Chan Gailey and his team crack the top fifteen. Oh, how it pained me...
-- I'm coming around to Boston College, and I felt like Clemson's road win over the Terps (combining with the aTm win) made it pretty damn tough not to rank them.
