No drastic reshuffling at this point, and I'm not yet undergoing a rigorous resume analysis, in large part because it's still too difficult to determine the quality of any given win. Put another way: To assign values to wins at this point is, essentially, to power poll. Which is basically what I'm doing with the above.

This is not to say results don't matter. They do--more this week than last. But there's a heavy dose of subjective opinion here, as well.The shuffling about among ranked teams 15-25 is... yeah. A mess. Especially considering I just picked Kansas to beat USF on the radio. I may need to revisit the back half of this ballot tomorrow morning.

So have at it. Where does your opinion differ from mine?
