|Last week’s ballot|
Some minor commentary after the jump.
I moved Florida back up despite this Tebow business because I watched them play in person (bias?) and they were very, very impressive as a team. After the first quarter Rich Brooks and Meyer called a kind of truce, as Kentucky just does not come back from 31-0 in the first quarter. But of course all that is meaningless and in flux at the moment. (I do give Florida more credit for beating Kentucky than Texas beating UTEP.) ‘Bama looks great but I’m not sure if they have the firepower to beat Texas or Florida.
Of course, Florida plays LSU, and Tebow absolutely should not play, just as a precaution if nothing else. So who knows what that will bring. (Indeed, the whole thing was strange. Tebow was completely knocked out for a moment — legs splayed on the turf — and I would have taken Tim to get X-rays immediately, thinking of course what happened with Natasha Richardson. I could be interpreting it wrong, but Kentucky sent the cart and staff over and Florida’s trainers/team doctors waived them off at first. Tebow then sat on the sidelines, then did a bit of a tour around the stadium and of course threw up, and then only about 45 minutes to an hour later did they take him to the Kentucky medical center. )
From there, my ballot has a typical amount of movement because I care not one whit about consistency from week to week. Comments welcome.
