BTD's Week 14 Top 25 Ballot

Georgia probably gets penalized more than they should for narrowly losing the SEC Championship game to Alabama, who is making a habit of playing for the National Championship, but the Bulldogs failed on both sides of the ball with the game on the line. Stanford served notice that they are really for real, and Northern Illinois, Louisville, and Arkansas St. stepped up and won their conference titles. Nebraska did not.

It's tempting to bump Northern Illinois down in anticipation of what may happen to them in the Orange Bowl without their head coach, but there will be time to do that in January.

Anyone wonder if anyone at Ohio St. now wonders about their decision to go to a bowl last year, and suffer a losing season as a result, rather than get their bowl ban overwith in time for this season?

It will be interesting to see how the bowl season shakes things up over the next month.
