Due to close calls and huge upsets, I’ve been forced to make tough decisions while ranking the Top 25 teams in the nation.
This week I even considered dropping Notre Dame after the Irish needed three overtimes to defeat so-so Pittsburgh. I decided to leave Notre Dame at No. 4, because it's hard to penalize a team after a win regardless of how lucky it is.
Here's the AP Top 25 ballot I submitted before the 11 am deadline. Take a good look at it.
Tell me what you think. I want your comments and criticisms.
