Total Ballots: 76 | Votes by team | Ballots by voter

Well look at that, I made a category again this week (I thought I had plenty of changes in my ballot, but I guess not).

Swing is the total change in each ballot from last week to this week (obviously voters who didn't submit a ballot last week are not included). A high number means you are easily distracted by shiny things. A low number means that you're damn sure you're right no matter what reality says.

# Blog Team Ballot Swing
1 Tom Fornelli Notre Dame Fighting Irish ballot 132
2 Frogs O' War TCU Horned Frogs ballot 124
3 Addicted to Quack Oregon Ducks ballot 122
4 Black Heart Gold Pants Iowa Hawkeyes ballot 116
5 Mountain West Connection Utah Utes ballot 116

Fornelli had West Virginia No. 4 and dropped it all the way to No. 24, the largest single delta for the 'Eers on the week. (And The Valley Shook! had them at No. 1 in Week 7, the lone voter to do so, but dropped them to No. 14 from there.) The shockwaves from that helped Fornelli take the top spot here.

# Blog Team Ballot Swing
1 The Daily Gopher Minnesota Golden Gophers ballot 50
2 Let's Go Rockets Toledo Rockets ballot 66
3 The Ralphie Report Colorado Buffaloes ballot 70
4 Eleven Warriors Ohio St. Buckeyes ballot 74
5 BC Interruption Boston College Eagles ballot 78

50 is a very small number for Swing that one only gets when one drops West Virginia only eight spots after a 49-14 loss. Congrats on that.
