BlogPoll 2011: Final Ballot


LSU? Yes, LSU but only because there's no way to split my vote with Oklahoma State. In my mind, those two share the title this year. Where's Alabama? Third. Didn't they win impressively on Monday? Absolutely, but it doesn't change the fact the actual game that counted occurred the first week of November when LSU defeated them in Tuscaloosa on their own field. If you don't win your conference, let alone your division then you get no part of a national title. I love college football, watch every game I possibly can and I tuned in for maybe a total of five minutes of gametime of the game. I just didn't care, the BCS succeeded in creating a "championship" game I didn't give a damn about what happened.

In other places, things played out to script in the rest of bowls so the rest of the Top 10 didn't see a change either. I almost flipped Wisconsin and Michigan State back again, however a close win over Georgia by the Spartans wasn't quite enough to offset the close loss to Oregon by the Badgers. Below that there was a little shuffling with Baylor, Houston and West Virginia the biggest climbers. On the flip side and out of character for them historically, Penn State laid an egg and along with Clemson's woeful performance, which dragged Virginia Tech along with them, saw all taking the furthest drops. Disagree with any of it? As always, questions, corrections, suggestions and objections are welcome.
