I had NU at No. 21, so I'm pretty much on top of things. Passing Northwestern were Oregon State (natch) and undefeated Rutgers.

In other news, it turns out I'm excessively boring: I ranked No. 2 in the Jim Tressel's Numb Existence award after winning it last week for the ballot with the least standard deviation from the actual ballot, and No. 3 in the "least swing" category for changing my ballot extremely little. Turn up the Dave Matthews and bring me another bowl of plain oatmeal, I guess.

Tomahawk Nation and Blatant Homerism have Northwestern at Nos. 9 and 10 respectively, but NU really starts picking up votes at No. 14. Three voters have NU at 14, 15, and 16, and the Cats are ranked in ever spot below that as well. 56 of 93 bloggers have NU ranked.
