Here it is, the Fulmer’s Belly ballot for the CBS Sports blogpoll, sponsored by Brian at Mgoblog. So just remember, whatever sorrows we’re having here at Tennessee, our football bretheren over at Michigan are having quite the same season after losing to Toledo (Toledo is a Native American meaning ‘A Monkey’s Penis’) 13-0.
Dropped Out: Tulsa (#24).
A few thoughts: I can’t say there’s much here that’s not to be expected. We’re sticking with Alabama as number one despite the Texas win over Oklahoma. It’ll give us some pause depending on what happens when the Longhorns face off against Missouri, but they could very well earn the top spot with a win there and any poor showing when Alabama faces Tennessee next week.
We’re also instituting a new rule here: Any team in the top 25 that loses to Tennessee will no longer be ranked.
Florida gets a big jump after putting a beatdown on LSU similar to those which my sister much stronger sibling did to me. USC is clawing their way back up, and OK State gets a boost after beating Missouri to stay undefeated. I’m not certain Missouri deserved a big a fall as they got, but they’re game against Texas will really help clarify things. Vandy fell 10 spots after getting Croomed. Georgia falls 3 spots to 12 for the simple fact that they kept Tennessee in the game until the final 5 minutes or so of the 4th quarter.
From now on, even beating Tennessee by a small margin earns you a drop in the ballot.
USF takes a drop despite not even playing. Why? Because frankly, looking at their schedule, I tend to think this off week might be the toughest opponent they’ll have, judging by how the Big East has been playing.
