Poll position

As always on Monday, the new polls are out.
You can find them both here.
I think the AP poll presents some bad news for UW as there are just three Pac-10 teams included — UCLA at No. 4, WSU at 9 and Oregon at 23 — which means that the national image of the conference is starting to slip.
I had a little different as you can tell from looking at my poll here:
1, Ohio State
2, Wisconsin
3, UCLA
4, Kansas
5, Florida
6, North Carolina
7, Memphis
8, Washington State
9, Texas A&M
10, Pitt
11, Nevada
12, Georgetown
13, Air Force
14, Southern Illinois
15, Butler
16, Louisville
17, Virginia Tech
18, Vanderbilt
19, Virginia
20, Texas
21, West Virginia
22, BYU
23, Stanford
24, Kansas State
25, USC
I’ve had Oregon in every poll until now — including the pre-season — but the way the Ducks have lost five of their last six caused me to drop them out. I think Oregon’s lack of an inside game has begun to take a toll.
I also moved Arizona back out for the obvious reasons.
Meanwhile, I put Stanford back in the poll and kept USC in it, while dropping them a little bit. You’ll note USC is 26th when considering the rest of the votes, so I’m not that far off.
The bottom 10 or so of the poll is a real jumble and I’ll admit it was as hard for me to put together this week as it has ever been with almost everybody from 13-25 losing last week, some teams twice, so I’m open to arguments there. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of difference among a lot of those teams.
