BlogPoll Ballot, Week 9: The Field Has Narrowed To Four

Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE

Nine weeks of the college football season has shown us that there are four teams that have risen above everyone else. The question now is, can they hang on?

After a week of somewhat calmness in week eight, week nine was a complete disaster for voter's ballots. There were so many losses and upsets that it literally was hard to keep track of and ballots were sent into mass chaos. Or perhaps that was just me.

Whatever the case, I've determined that the 2012 college football season has drawn a line between the top four and then everyone else. Basically once you get to five it doesn't matter anymore, at this point.
