CRFF BlogPoll Week 2 Ballot

I will post our methodology again for those that didn't care last time, but care a lot this time.

The CRFF BlogPoll Methodology
There are a few steps we go through to break the teams into different tiers, then rank them within their tier.

Step 1: We rank all the teams from BCS-AQ conferences in order of record.  All undefeated teams go to the top, then the one loss teams, then the two loss teams, then... you know how counting works. So at no point - EVER - will any team be ranked above a team that has a better overall record.

Step 2: Non BCS-AQ teams can be dropped into each tier at CRFF's discretion. If we think Boise State is good enough to be in the undefeated tier with the BCS schools, they go in, if we deem then not good enough, they are out of the poll completely.

Step 3: We rank within the record tiers. This is where it gets subjective, although we try to standardize it a little. The ranking within the record tiers is based purely on resume. Whichever team has got to this record tier by beating the best opponents will be the first seed in this tier.  Of course, the "who they beat" part is pretty subjective, but at some point you have to rank based on what we watch each week right?

With the methodology listed above, obviously the week one rankings are going to be all over the place.  We are basically going to just rank all the undefeated teams in the order of who had the best wins in week 1.  Who beat the perceived best teams? Who looked good beating bad teams?

The CRFF ballot is after the jump.  Keep in mind, this is based purely on who beat the best opponent, and who looked the most impressive in their win.... and it is all completely subjective at this point.

Update: We had Baylor ranked better than any other ballot in the BlogPoll, and got a little shout out for it. This might be the most embarrassing moment in CRFF history.
