Looks like a few of y’all took the week off.
Was it something I said? Anyway, hope you stragglers return to the fold next week.
Cutting to the chase, here’s how our top 25 looks for Week 10 (technically, it’s a top 26, because, tie):
In all, 52 teams received at least one vote. Florida wasn’t one of those.

And our budget’s a helluva lot lower! Plus, this:
With every weekly result, I believe more strongly that using approval voting with a larger number of voters is a superior way to skin the playoff field cat.
The conference breakdown shows we’re starting to shy away slightly from our previous Big Ten respect.
Voter geography remains consistent, with 64.7% of the voting pool hailing from the Peach State.

- Georgia continues to earn the respect of the voters, with another 100% showing.
- Georgia is also the only team to clear 90% approval.
- There is a pretty tight bunch between two and six, all above 75% approval.
- Below six, there’s a significant drop off to seven, so the plus-50% group continues to shrink.
- With Ohio State above Oregon and Michigan above Michigan State, it appears we’re not that swayed by head-to-head results.
