Mumme Poll, Week of November 23

My Mumme Poll ballot for this week:



Ohio State
Oklahoma State
Penn State
Texas Tech

  • Also considered: Boise State.
  • Never Considered: TCU, Ball State, any ACC Team, any Big East team.
  • Ok, seriously, the Big 12 is strong, but is it as strong as the polls indicate?  Until I see anything different, I have to think so.
  • Sorry, but the Big East and the ACC need to just say we don’t belong in the BCS this year, regardless of what happens in Athens this week.

    I think the Big 12 is strong, mainly b/c of how bad every other conference is. However, they still have zero relevant out of conference wins, unless wins at home over TCU and Cincy are now to be considered great wins. Therefore, I have no problem with them being guaranteed a title team, but any talk of them getting both participants is a joke. They all played each other already, and their resumes are all based off beating each other. The other title shot goes to UF or Bama, and if they slip, USC. Any talk of some OU v. Texas rematch is garbage, and would only further encourage teams and conferences to go the LSU route with non conference scheduling.

    Here’s my dream BCS doomsday scenario. Alabama loses to Auburn and Florida. Florida loses to FSU. Oklahoma loses to Oklahoma State. Missouri beats Texas Tech in the Big 12 game. Oregon State beats Oregon. USC destroys both Notre Dame and UCLA. At this point, #1 and #2 in the BCS will likely be Texas and USC because they’re ranked higher than Penn State right now, neither of which won its conference. Every other conference champ will have two losses and Utah will be the highest ranked undefeated team with Penn State the highest ranked conference champion. Maybe this scenario would actually get the gears for a playoff rolling.

    The crazy part of that scenario is that it’s not even that far fetched. I’m not even sure it requires a Bama loss to Auburn if UF simply blows them out.

    I have another ridiculous scenario. Alabama loses to Auburn, drops way back in the polls, but upsets Florida in the SEC Title Game. Texas Tech loses to Baylor, so Texas goes to the Big 12 Title game. Oregon beats Oregon State. Then, it could finish 1) Texas, 2) OU, 3) USC, Bama, Penn State, Utah in some order. Do you give a second place team from the Big 12 w/ one loss another shot at a team they already lost to by double digits on a neutral field, over 4 conference champs? 3 of whom are powerhouses of college football?

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.
