It's definitely strange and a valid question.
Without really knowing what other voters do, it seems like some set their order and then move teams up or down 3 or 5 or 10 spots based on any one particular loss. I agree DF2004 that h2h is the strongest measure we have, and I'm also a big proponent of re-ordering from scratch (though I myself don't do it every week, it's a good exercise to make sure you are putting teams where they belong in comparison to other teams and not just kind of where they were last week, give or take a bit)
I agree with Ypsi's sentiment in that as you give it time, the votes will sort themselves out and crystallize around a more solid group.
But it definitely looked silly to have Monmouth ahead of Wartburg in any way, and even worse with the Scots laying another egg in Week 2.
I wonder if we could write a computer program that would take into account all h2h results and not let you vote for a team that lost to a significantly lower-ranked team ... at least until later in the season when certain results are bound to conflict.
Nerds? A lil help?
