I'm not sure #5 isn't too low for Boise St., but Oklahoma St., and now Stanford, have made some strong statements in support of their case.
It's tempting to elevate Oregon above Clemson, but that issue will resolve itself one way or another when the Ducks and the Cardinal meet.
Let me know what I should change, and why you think I should by Monday night!
