As I've said the past few weeks, I think the gap between the top 7-8 teams and the rest of the field seems to be growing. A lot of teams lost near the bottom of my ballot last week, and though I would have been fine only ranking 20 teams this week, we're required to submit 25.

So, you have heard about the Red Cross holding a Blood Drive and wondered, “What's that all about?” Let me give you a quick overview.

BOISE — It’s mostly hidden in a business park — much more so than it was at its inception nearly 40 years ago. But a now-familiar sign straddling the street reminds motorists that there is, in fact, a restaurant on South Cole Road in Boise’s elderly Franklin Business Park.
NAMPA — Some might call fresh ingredients and handmade menu items a rapidly expanding trend in the restaurant scene. Blazen Burgers co-owner Brad Blamires calls it old school — and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
BOISE — In a valley known for its natural beauty, scenic views are surprisingly hard to come by amid the local dining scene. A new ninth-floor café has risen to the occasion — reaching heights as high as the inversion and beyond.

NAMPA — Over the years, the name and location have changed. But Blue Sky Café owners Robin and Rusty Moore are the same, both in the way they treat their friends/diners and the hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner they serve.
