I've been curious as to how volatile (or not) the Poll Voters actually are as a group.  So I decided I was going to make a spreadsheet to track it and show the progress of the Buckeyes.  Right now I just wanted a quick resource to track changes so, I'm just showing who won or lost and their change in votes from week to week. I'm not planning on putting too much analysis into it, but if anyone has ideas or information they're curious about I'll try and include it.  I'll give a few thoughts on what's happened in the past week.

AP Rankings Week 2

The first item that jumped out at me were that quite a few pollsters decided to switch their allegiance from Bama to LSU.  Kind of refreshing development to see especially at the top.  However, I do expect more corrections at the beginning of the season than the end.

The other big takeaway was the annual emptying of the Notre Dame Preseason Bandwagon into the Notre Dame Lover Hath Scorned Pollster Brigade.

Let me know what you think and I'll give another update next week.
