It wasn't nearly as bad as the past couple of weeks, but the 2007 football season still feels as if Hunter S. Thompson is at the wheel. Strike that. Hunter S. Thompson after he smoked a joint composed of Jim Morrison's ashes that were soaked in mescaline.
The Buckeyes are still our number one, although LSU will more than likely get more than it's share of BlogPoll love later this week. The hits keep on coming.
There are quite a few big games this week: Boston College at Virginia Tech on Thursday, Cal at Arizona State, USC at Oregon, Florida at Georgia and the Buckeyes revisiting the site of their last regular season loss when they take on Penn State in Happy Valley.
As always, you can check the ballots of every voter and the final version is due Wednesday morning, so get your thoughts in by Tuesday night if you think we got it wrong.
