Final Blogpoll Ballot!

Submitted by on December 7, 2010One Comment

This may be the most boring ballot I’ve ever submitted. In short–a reevaluation of the college football landscape was a) pretty impossible with only a handful of championship games and b) didn’t yield any surprising results. I liked where my rankings were at this time last week, and I’ve kept them almost entirely unchanged.

So, rather than do a write-up identical to last week’s, I’ll share something far more embarrassing: my preseason rankings.

Now that’s pretty ugly, but take a look at the composite rankings from before the season started. I had Auburn and Oregon at #16 and #18–the consensus had Oregon at #11, but Auburn all the way down at #23. I wasn’t the only one fooled by Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida–they all received #1 votes! For as much as this season failed to engender much late-season excitement, with highly ranked teams staying at the top of the rankings for the last few months, it produced an outcome that few saw coming.
