Blogpoll ballot Week 2

I didn't see much of the Penn State-Alabama game, but what I did see made me think the Tide are probably the best team in the county. Hence they kept my number one slot. Because of the lightning delay, I did see much of the Oregon-Tennessee game. Oregon looks very impressive and gets my number two slot. Everything else is a little bit of twisted logic and rational. I continue to sandbag BC because we didn't play great and because we haven't beaten anyone of note yet. But I do think our team can be very good. Also to explain a bit about what I watch and how much attention I pay. At this point with three kids under five, the 3:30 BC games are killers. I watch but my ability to focus or hear is blunted by the chaos that is going on around. So it is not until the second viewing that I am able to pick up on everything. As for the other games, most are on in the background and I watch while doing other things (work, exercise, etc.)

Games I watched

BC-Kent State 100% (twice)
Auburn-Mississippi State -- 50%
Notre Dame-Michigan 25%
West Virginia-Marshall -- 50%

I'm biased here as a from the cradle Nebraska fan, but what did they do this week to merit slipping 5 spots?

ATL_eagle said...

Nothing really EasyRider. I like Nebraska too. I didn't so much move them back as I moved others past them. Texas and OSU both moved up. Don't read too much into any of this. Polling -- especially mine -- is moronic.

Please get your priorities in order! LOL

I don't know if you have kids, but others can confirm. 12:00 games are okay because they are just finishing lunch and the two youngest still take naps after lunch. 7:00 are fine because they are fed and ready for bed. 3:30, everyone is up, they get dinner at 5 and they have plenty of energy to run around and make noise. Plus the youngest is a champion pooper and blewout his diaper all over the wife during the start of the second half on Saturday.

Too bad the Rat isn't still around.

That place could churn out some champion poopers.

i mourn the passing of the rat daily. Unfortunately, it looks like the dustbowl is next to disappear once construction on the stokes building starts in a few weeks
