25 Football Teams that are not the Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Really, who cares? None of the teams on the following list wears a block R on their helmets or sings "On the Banks of the Old Raritan" after their games, but since I have religiously filled out the fifteen previous BlogPoll ballots this season, here is my sixteenth.

As always, you can click on the thumbnail on the upper right to check out the scribbled logic behind these rankings.

See you in April for the Scarlet-White Game!

1 Alabama
2 Boise State 3
3 Texas 1
4 Florida 2
5 TCU 1
6 Ohio State 1
7 Iowa 2
8 Cincinnati 5
9 Penn State 1
10 Pittsburgh 2
11 Virginia
12 Brigham Young 3
13 Oregon 5
14 Georgia Tech 3
15 Utah 4
16 Nebraska 5
17 LSU 3
18 Wisconsin 6
19 Mississippi
20 Miami (Florida) 4
21 Central Michigan 2
22 Southern Cal
23 Texas Tech
24 Navy
25 Oregon State 7
Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Virginia Tech (#13), West Virginia (#17), Oklahoma State (#20), Stanford (#22), Houston (#25).

Update 11 January 2010:
OK, maybe I need to start proofreading. #11 on this final list should probably have been the 10-3 Virginia Tech Hokies and not the 3-9 Virginia Cavaliers. Though I love Charlottesville and I'm sure there was a least one Cavalier fan who was thrilled to see his team's name in a position high on the "Others Receiving Votes" list because of my carelessness, I'm sorry. Thanks to Brian Cook for singling out this error in the "Wack Ballot Watchdog" section of his Postseason Blogpoll wrapup earlier this afternoon.

If Temple had won, where would they be?

Rutgers at #31 AP at the top of a tier is interesting.

If Temple had won, they would have been at least as high as Navy is now, having beat the Midshipmen.
