  • Noticeable thinning out this week with Fresno State taking the hit, among others.
  • I’m a little surprised there was no outlier vote for Duke.  You know Spurdog would have been tempted.
  • Conference breakdown:  SEC – 5; Pac-12 – 3; Big Ten – 3; Big 12 – 2; ACC – 2; AAC – 1; MAC – 1

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 14

Rivalry Week was crazy, but it didn’t have a huge effect on my ballot this week. Clemson be gone, though. Here’s my current top ten list (*tiebreaker):

  • Alabama
  • Arizona State
  • Auburn
  • Baylor
  • FSU*
  • Missouri
  • Oklahoma State
  • Ohio State
  • Oregon
  • Stanford

Also considered:  Michigan State, South Carolina

I’m still not sold on the Spartans, but they’ve got an excellent opportunity to change my mind this week.  The Gamecocks, alas, do not.

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 13

Man, the Pac-12 isn’t making it easy, is it.  Here’s my top ten for this week (*tiebreaker):

  • Alabama
  • Arizona State
  • Auburn
  • Baylor
  • Clemson
  • FSU*
  • Missouri
  • Ohio State
  • Oklahoma State
  • Stanford

Also considered:  Oregon, Wisconsin

Back to struggling.  With that road win over UCLA, I couldn’t leave Arizona State out of my top ten anymore.  And I couldn’t quite bring myself to vote Baylor out of the top ten for losing to a Oklahoma State team that lost to a West Virginia team that got waxed by the Bears.  That left me knocking Oregon and Wisconsin out, just barely.

If there’s any consolation, there are a bunch of huge games this week that should sort things out to some extent.  Of course, that’ll probably mean I’ll spend thirty minutes again putting a ballot together.

  • Can’t say there’s anything particularly shocking in the results – Baylor flips with Ohio State in the polls from what we’ve got and we like Michigan State more than the pollsters do, but that’s about it.
  • Conference make up:  SEC – 6; Pac-12 – 3; Big Ten – 3; Big 12 – 2; ACC – 2; MAC – 1; MWC – 1.

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 12

One big upset in last week’s top ten, so there’s change this week. (*tiebreaker)

  • Alabama
  • Auburn
  • Baylor
  • Clemson
  • FSU*
  • Missouri
  • Ohio State
  • Oklahoma State
  • Oregon
  • Wisconsin

Also considered:  Arizona State, Stanford, Texas A&M

By the narrowest of margins, I went with Auburn.  Arizona State’s played well and was a close call, but the Sun Devils lost to Stanford.  It’s certainly possible that I may be treating a Stanford squad that’s notched a bunch of impressive wins over ranked teams unfairly.  But Auburn’s starting to get that team of destiny smell around it and I had a hard time ignoring that.

I struggled with that last pick, no question, and wound up spending about twenty-five minutes putting this week’s ballot together.
