Mumme Poll, Week of October 19

Ballot for October 19:
Oklahoma State
Penn State

Ohio State
Texas Tech

  • LSU was almost bumped in favor or Missouri.  The Big 12 Tigers have lost to two of the top teams.  The SEC Tigers gutted out a tough road win at night against a pesky Gamecock squad. Earlier this season, that would get you dropped a spot or two.
  • The toughest choice was who were rankable teams: did any ACC teams deserve to be on the list? Obviously, I thought not.
  • The second toughest decision was who should be on the top list and who should be on the very top list.  In my mind there are two definite top teams this week, several that belong in a middle bunch, and a couple that are better than the rest, but not as good as the middle bunch.
  • Alabama has a tendency to only play a half of a game, but in the ‘just win baby’ SEC, that is enough…right now.
  • Oklahoma State was hurt by Missouri’s performance against Texas and Illinois’ performance against Minnesota last week.
  • Also considered: Boise State, Boston College, Missouri.
  • Never considered: TCU, Georgia Tech, FSU, Northwestern, Minnesota, Ball State, Tulsa, any Big East team.

    Agreed that Oklahoma State is a hard team to figure out after Mizzou and Illinois went down, and also beating Baylor “only” 34-6! In the Big XII that’s considered a squeaker. This weekend will settle a lot.

    Saw your comment on Thinking Bulldog…yes, Law School class of 93. Will be in touch on e-mail later.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
