Picking on the Pollsters - Week 12
I paid special attention to Rutgers location and Arkansas. Two teams deserving of a largest jump in the polls.

Throughout the course of the season, Ray has had one of the most peculiar ballots. I'd put him atop my list of voters I'd like to talk to because I yet again can't understand his thought process.
6. West Virginia
Ray Ray ... West Virginia ahead of Arkansas AND Rutgers. What gives?
Jon Wilner - San Jose Mercury
I've included this gem, because it appears he's used several different theories. Rewarding some teams with weaker schedules, yet punishing others. He also clearly doesn't care about head to head matchups AT ALL.
12. West Virginia
Jeff Metcalf - Arizona Republic
3. Arkansas - I like it
7. West Virginia - What?
10. Rutgers - Hmmm. You know I thought maybe the voters might have watched the WVU-UL and UL-RU games. But this is proof they haven't.
David Jones - Florida Today
Here's one ballot I can't really disagree with.
Jason Whitlock - Kansas City Star
Always has a unique ballot.
Kirk Herbstreit - ESPN
You're going to love this ...
3. Southern Cal
5. Notre Dame
8. West Virginia
I'm thinking Herbie was finally denied by a Gator sorostitute ...
Which voter has lost his mind? Feel free to sound off on the voters in the comments section and point out any other interesting ballots I might have missed.
