My Mumme Poll ballot for week 7:
Top 5 (in alphabetical order):
Next 7 (in alphabetical order):
- I sure don't like putting Cincy in the top 5. I liked it more than putting Boise State and TCU in there. USC showed they deserved to be in there, what with having to beat ND and the officials. That game could have been a 13+ point win. (Ed note: I guess you know why I had such an aversion to that.)
- I had a hard time getting the last teams into the poll. Oklahoma State, Oregon, Georgia Tech, BYU and Miami all vied. I really labored with figuring out if my personal aversion to Georgia Tech kept them out. In the end, I felt Miami had to be there before them and Oklahoma State and Oregon played better schedules. Sorry BYU, you don't lose to FSU and make my ballot, at least this week.
- Teams I never considered: Utah, Houston, Virginia Tech, Pitt, Kansas or West Virginia.
- Games I watched all or parts of: Ga/Vandy, Ill/Indiana, Ohio State/Purdue, Florida/Arkansas, Alabama/South Carolina, Colorado/Kansas, Arizona State/Washington, Texas/Oklahoma, USC/Nortre Dame, Iowa/Wisconsin. Good day.
