The D1scourse 30

← return to D1SCOURSE

For the penultimate time this season, the teams in one guy’s Harris poll ballot, plus five more to consider.

The entire ballot is results-based, and the previous week’s ballot is not consulted while coming up with the next one. Only after a ballot is complete is the “Previous” column filled in.

There will be a more thorough look at the six unbeatens later on, but for now, this will have to do.
