Brian has the commentary and full poll up at CBS Sports.

This week, Subway Domer walked away with the Mr. Bold award for off the wall top 10 that had Tulsa, Utah, and Boise St. living large. I've been ready to defend such actions with answers such as:
  • At least I have Ball State lower
  • They keep winning
  • #1 offense in the country

My ideology may change in the coming weeks- or even next week. I just think that a few schools outside of the BCS conference teams should be given a little more respect. It's hard for me to rank any team ahead of another that has more losses at this point in the season ( Yet, I do it so easily with Ball State- makes you wonder). So we'll just have to wait and see.
