Definitely a yes! Welcome to OP-dom. I feel like you were an official pollster once before....? Or you've just been active on the forum in the past. Either way, thanks for applying!

Definitely a yes from me. Quick question though, you still have Oklahoma and Notre Dame ranked with a 1-2 record?

I'm voting yes, because most of your poll seems well thought-out.
One question, though. Is there a reason LSU is still ranked fairly high, while Wisconsin - who beat them - isn't ranked?

I was an official pollster before but gave up my spot for a while. I've still been somewhat active and now I thought was a good time as any to become official again!

LSU has a better schedule (so far) than Wisconsin. LSU played Jacksonville State and a conference game against Miss St. Wisconsin played LSU, Akron, and Georgia State. To me, it seems that the schedule favors LSU more than Wisconsin. That's my rational on that vote.

Trust me, I am not a fan of having not one but two 1-2 teams in the Top 25. Notre Dame's loss against Texas was close. If it had been a blowout loss they probably would not be in my poll. As for Oklahoma, they've played a great Houston team and a very talented Ohio State. While the OSU loss was significant, I'm giving them props for having a strong schedule. As the season continues, teams like Baylor (that have played weak schedules to this point) will be hurt with me.

But they played each other on the field, and Wisconsin won. I can see maybe rationalizing that it was all on home-field advantage, but to not rank Wisconsin at all and leave LSU in the top 15? I dunno, that's suspect to me.

exactly why I 86'd both teams. But then I root for FSU so what do I know?

I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of these teams are ranked by season's end although, based on what I've seen so far, the argument for Oklahoma is very thin. They've played 2 good teams and lost by double digits to both. Lost to Houston as heavy favorites on a neutral field. Blown out by tOSU in Norman.
As for the Irish, the argument is there as they lost both games close. Although, Texas losing to Cal doesn't help....

Ha! I thought of dropping FSU out completely after witnessing that blowout but the win over Ole Miss kept them at #22 for me.

I voted yes, but the Wisc is odd... even after week 1, when Wisc had only played LSU and LSU had only played Wisc, yet Wisc wasn't ranked and LSU was. They had only each played one game; LSU lost to an unranked team and Wisc beat the #6 team... at that point Wisc had a stronger schedule according to your poll. Right?
