How we voted in ESPN.com's Top 25

Neither Adam nor I have a vote in the Associated Press, USA Today coaches' or Harris polls, and we do not have a voice in baserunning obstruction calls. But we do have a say in the weekly ESPN.com Power Rankings, and here's what we said this week.

We both have four Big Ten teams ranked this week, with Michigan just sneaking in at No. 25. There's a very good chance, of course, that either Michigan State or Michigan will drop out next week, depending on the outcome of this week's game. … We both remain much higher on Wisconsin than most of the rest of the country. The Badgers have a prove-it game at Iowa this week, and that upcoming BYU game is looking tougher. … Not a ton of difference on our ballots elsewhere, with the exception of Oklahoma State. Adam has the Pokes at 18th, while I just haven't been impressed with their wins over the soft middle of a down Big 12. Of course, you could also make the same argument against some Big Ten clubs.

What does your Top 25 look like this week?
