The ballots are in. The votes are tallied.
The staff here at HLS has done our patriotic duty to exercise our right to vote on the top 25 teams in all of college football…save for one staff member that abstained…
HLS Top 25 – Week 10[table “” not found /]
Notre Dame may have not budged in the other human polls, but we here at HLS had to drop them down a peg after struggling to Pitt while Oregon had a solid win against USC. We might be homers, but we are fair homers.
Now that we are approaching the home stretch of the season, most of the poll changes are happening near the bottom. This week, we feature five new teams in our top 25 (including the return of the MAC!) with one, UCLA reaching as high as 18. The middle of the rankings continue to be a dog fight with many teams moving one or two spots weekly in the 10-20 spots as well.
We are definitely due for another major shakeup. I wouldn’t call this the calm before the storm, but rather that moment when the threatening clouds have long since arrived and the rain and wind is starting to pick up.
Oh, and as far as our lone absentee this week — that honor goes to Biscuit. Feel free to rib him for being the first in history to flat out decline, but to be fair the guy is insanely busy this week and knew he wouldn’t be able to get it out in any timely fashion. So really, we all owe him one for taking one for the team so we could get this out today.
As for everyone else, here’s how the voting broke down:

Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
