Ok this is it. Here is the final ballot from Bruins Nation which we submitted today.
I took up Arty's suggestion and bumped down ND a little further down. But I am not ready to drop them below top-10. With Brady Quinn captaining that offense I think they are a top-10 despite serious questions in their front 7.
I also bumped Iowa and Tennessee down a bit further down as well based on the feedbacks in last two threads:
Yes UCLA has enough talent to be a top-25 team.
In terms of talent in the Pac-10 we are only behind USC and Cal, and one can argue that Cal probably doesn't have the depth in terms of talent at all the positions like we have. Sure we are a little thin at LBs and at DBs, but we do have some young talent ready to step up. And now that a new DC with all that hype is in place there is no excuse for this team not to win 9 wins and beat SC at home.
Based on those realistic minimum expectations alone UCLA is a top-20 football team in the eyes of Bruins Nation.
So are you ready?

Just 2 more weekends to go without UCLA football.
