I suppose of of the major question marks will be what undefeated West Virginia, which dropped 5 spots despite a 10 point win over Maryland, did to deserve to drop. The answer is nothing, but for those who haven't been around for prior years, a team does not entrench itself with a ranking in a given week. We are approaching the point where resume is the only thing that matter, I think everyone above WVU has accomplished more.
I struggled to know what to do with all of the single loss teams. I'm not quite buying Oklahoma all the way down at #22, and may revisit that before the poll goes final.
