SB Nation Blog Poll: Week 6 Results

As expected, the Bears' loss to West Virginia this past weekend cost us in the BlogPoll. But did it cost us too much?

So we're 33rd in the BlogPoll rankings this week after losing most of our support when we lost to West Virginia. That makes sense, I guess. You just can't leave a team like the Ohio Bobcats off the rankings. That place is a powerhouse.

I am intrigued by the fact that a few more schools picked up #1 votes this week, which could be a result of voters getting tired of ranking Alabama #1. Still, even with a few sprinkled about, there is no exigent threat to Bama's lead in the BlogPoll, and I don't see them being jumped under any circumstance short of an outright loss. Oregon at #2 is probably the same way at this point, although it's possible they could get jumped if someone were to beat Alabama. The biggest mover in the rankings was Oregon State by virtue of their big win over Stanford. That same game dropped Stanford down 10 spots after their rise coming off beating USC. Stanford is an enigma right now because it really feels like their offense should be better than it is.

Baylor's path back into the rankings is clear: beat TCU next Saturday. Take care of business there and we'll have a victory over what should still be a top-15 school through their game against Iowa State this weekend, easily enough to jump 8 spots in this (and the other, actually important) poll(s).

Here's the entire article from the mothership about this week's BlogPoll, including commentary on which blogs did best/worst and so on.
