My Mumme Poll Ballot for the last week of the season.
- Also considered: Georgia, Oregon. Time heals all wounds.
- Never considered: Any Big East team, any ACC team. Sorry, losing to Virginia, regardless of who you have beaten, gets you excluded from my poll. If you think a Big East team should be ranked, know the conference champion needed a miracle this past weekend to escape with a win against Hawaii. The Orange Bowl should be a delight.
- The SEC championship game really highlighted how different Georgia was from the top two teams in the conference. It is all about the line of scrimmage. However, there is no 3 loss team that can say they have losses to the kinds of teams that Georgia loss to.
On a personal note, I want to thank the Senator for doing this. It has been a blast and has given me the chance to be a little more objective and to pay attention to the college football season in a way I haven’t before. My wife and kids (they are around here somewhere, right?) thank you for starting me back to blogging.
