Mumme Poll Ballot and Results

My top five (in alphabetical order):
  • Alabama
  • Cincinnati
  • Florida
  • TCU
  • Texas
My next seven (in alphabetical order):
  • Boise State
  • Georgia Tech
  • Ohio State
  • Oklahoma State
  • Oregon
  • Pittsburgh
  • Virginia Tech
Thoughts:
  • No, Iowa and Penn State don't belong above Virginia Tech. 
  • I really struggled with placement of Virginia Tech over the three loss teams from the Pac-10.  In the end, losing to the teams they did, I just had to go with them for now.
  • This was the hardest poll to put together, as I find it distasteful to put Ohio State, Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech in the poll.

Quick thoughts:
  • Who is smoking what to put Northwestern in the poll?  
  • A top 10 is emerging.  
  • We are still at 34 teams.  That is pretty amazing to me.  
  • We have a pretty good consensus about a top 5.
What jumps out at you?
