Mumme Poll Released - For Real This Time

Not much movement from when I jumped the gun yesterday:

Rank Team Votes (Top pick)
1 Oregon 129 (83)
2 Ohio State 125 (23)
3 Auburn 125 (4)
4 Boise State 117 (5)
5 Nebraska 115 (2)
6 Oklahoma 115 (1)
7 TCU 110 (0)
8 Alabama 106 (5)
9 LSU 97 (6)
10 South Carolina 89 (0)
11 Michigan State 74 (0)
12 Utah 33 (0)
13 Stanford 22 (0)
14 Arkansas 13 (0)
15 Nevada 7 (1)
16 Missouri 7 (0)
17 Oklahoma State 5 (0)
18 Iowa 4 (0)
19 Florida State 3 (0)
20 Florida 2 (0)
21 Wisconsin 1 (0)
21 California 1 (0)

  • Apparently, not that many other voters were convinced my vote for Arkansas was a solid one.
  • Only Oregon got a vote in ever single ballot (as best I can tell, 129 ballots were cast).
  • There is a clear top 11, but no real dividing line, except maybe the fifteen votes between South Carolina and Michigan State, in the top 11.
  • You can double guess my ballot (and some of you have), but I nearly flagged the two Florida ballots.  I didn't because the rest of their picks looked solid, and one of them explained their methodology.
  • Not sure if there is a place to see it, but is sure seems there is an SEC tilt with the voters when you see Alabama getting first place votes, after a loss to South Carolina (who ended up below them in the poll), but Stanford only got included on 22 ballots, though they lost to the top team in the poll.
  • Of course, I Stanford was one of my last teams left off, so I am not in much position to talk.  Still 'Bama getting 5 first place votes and Stanford only getting 22 votes total is...interesting.
