Full disclosure: My latest AP ballot
The balloting gets trickier by the week. Seven teams in my previous top 25 lost this weekend. Eight others didn't play.
As a result, questions abound. Which losers get punished slightly? Which get punished severely? And whom do you move onto the ballot?
My answers: 1) Tennessee, Miami, Houston, North Carolina. 2) Stanford, Arkansas, Colorado. 3) Virginia Tech, Georgia, Auburn, Navy.
Why Navy instead of USF? The Midshipmen have a quality win (46-40 against Houston), the Bulls don't.
Rest easy, USF fans. This stuff has a way of working itself out. The Bulls hosts the Midshipmen at the end of the month.
