I guess I kinda spoiled the lede here, but, guess what: the rest of the voters in the BlogPoll agreed with our assessment that NU should be ranked this week. You'll never guess where they were ranked! (That's a false hook - they were actually nowhere that interesting, but hit the jump anyway.)
As you can see, NU is 23rd, which is exactly where I put them. In fact, for those of you who called me an idiot, GUESS WHO ISN'T AN IDIOT: my ballot actually won the Jim Tressel's Numb Existence Award this week for having the least standard deviation from the overall blogpoll. Putting that on the resume.
NU is ranked as high as fourth - thanks, Blatant Homerism, for your resume balloting - and has a lot of B1G blogs putting them in the ballot, so many I don't really feel like listing it.. Notably, LTP also has NU 23rd, and from former opponent blogs, BC Interruption has NU 20th, and Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician has NU 24th.
Looking forward to NU getting a win this week and moving higher on this and real ballots, y'all.
