This looks like a good poll, not a ton of quibbles with my fellow voters. Maybe PITT so far below Penn State is a little weird, but this seems...correct...?

 

Also, I'm the Bama #1 vote. In case you want to be angry at someone.

Oh wait, didn't pay enough attention to the "Also Received Votes" section: 3 MAC teams ?!!?!

I have lost to the 15th and 16th ranked teams who are a combined 10-0.

 

This week I beat then-#4, current #12 Illinois. Not even one vote :(

 

Join the club.  I have lost close games to the 4th and 8th ranked teams.

 

This week I blew out then #21 on the road.  Only 2 votes

Why is Pittsburgh ranked below Penn State?

Pollsters aren't directly comparing just Pitt and Penn State, Penn State started a lot higher, and polls have Bayesian tendencies to adjust incrementally rather than entirely overwrite prior assumptions.

Look at the poll. There aren't any 2 loss teams. There's no room for you

Some pollsters value head-to-head results and rank accordingly.

The University of Oregon has a season-opening loss to current #7 Vanderbilt, a 3pt loss to previously-undefeated Texas, and just knocked former #11 WSU down...the week after knocking Arizona OUT of the rankings. Just keep winning and the poll will take care of itself. That's the credo we're living by.
