Dropped Out: Kentucky (#19), Penn State (#23)
--West Virginia is the big winner in the Oregon-Oklahoma freefall sweepstakes. You'll note that three other Big East teams are ranked on my ballot while Ohio State has just two other Big Ten brothers in the poll, one of whom they lost to (Illinois), and then the Badgers at #25 and that's just because I couldn't think of anyone else to put there.
--Georgia also leaps the Buckeyes. The Dawgs would win if they played OSU today. Earlier in the year? No.
--Conference count...ACC (4 teams ranked), Big East (4), Big 10 (3), Big 12 (4), Pac 10 (3),
SEC (4), Mountain West (1), WAC (2).
--Most likely to depart from next week's ballot: Connecticut (as West Virginia), Hawaii or Boise State (they play this Friday).
