Last week’s ballot

Dropped Out: Houston (#16), California (#20), Southern Cal (#22).

I don’t know who belongs at #2. I guess anyone could make a case for any of the rest of the undefeateds, I just think TCU’s case is the strongest. Top 10 offense and top 10 defense should count for something.

The rest is fairly static. Your comments are welcome and appreciated, as this is the final blogpoll until after the bowls. Let’s make this one perfect.

Comments

  1. So, clearly I am biased, but why did Texas DROP after they beat Nebrasky? Clearly not a dominant win, but a win nonetheless. AND, TCU didn’t play last week. (I do think TCU got shafted by getting Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl; would be more interesting to see each of them play a “real” conference team, IMHO.

    When will Tressnak make an appearance?

  2. Texas belongs at #2. Other than Cincinnati, the other undefeateds just didn’t beat a lot of winning programs, so in addition to being undefeated as a criteria for playing for a national championship(5 schools) they need to show that they have beaten a decent stack of schools that have beaten a decent stack of schools.

    Give the undefeateds their props for a good season, but nobody is going to watch TCU/Boise, regardless of their perfect records, why? Neither of them has played a really tough schedule that gives any weight to the game.

    I think that any of the undefeateds has as good a chance as any other to beat Florida, but my unbiased poll agrees with this match-up based on strength of schedule.
