I only have a few huge delta's this weel
  • Air Force - After how tight they played a top ten team I could not bring myself to dump them. When VT got beat by Boise there was no rush to push them out of the top 25, so why is everyone being so hard on the Falcons who have a more difficult schedule than Boise.
  • Arizona - I have the cats way lower because I don't think the win is as quality as many are claiming. Time will tell if I am way off here but I suspect that Iowa is not everything people expected this year.
  • Penn State - I have a feeling that some folks saw the scoreboard against Kent and punished Penn State. This may be justified given all the turnovers but I'm not sold thats a systemic problem yet. So I have PSU a bit higher than most.
  • Florida - They have shown me nothing this year, and their habit of playing only in the second half is going to crush them once SEC play starts.
  • LSU - I have no reason, really, I just know they are a top 15 team and this seemed like the right spot to put them.
