-- After their trouncing of Maryland, I'm starting to believe in the Mountaineers, and they've gotten a big bump from me. Steve Slaton is pretty good.

-- Ohio State earned the #1 spot with the best win of the season. I haven't cooled on USC at all.

-- The Oregon/Oklahoma debacle presented an interesting situation for this week's ballot. Do I take the results straight up and rank the teams accordingly, or do I consider that Oklahoma really did win that game? I moved both teams up.

-- As always, I try to rank teams by the who-is-better-than-who principle. Which is why teams like LSU, Oklahoma, and Tennessee haven't dropped too far with losses. They are where they are because I think they're better than the teams I have behind them.

-- TCU and Michigan State are new to the poll this week.
