I can’t wait to see how the last coaches’ poll plays out.
… Texas coach Mack Brown certainly considers his team worthy of the assignment.
“I wasn’t sure before right now, but Friday morning, I am going to vote Texas No. 1 (in the final coaches’ poll), because I think this is the best team in the country,” Brown said in the postgame celebration.
Utah’s Kyle Whittingham intends to vote his team #1. My bet is that Pete Carroll probably feels the same way about USC.
Except the coaches are supposed to vote the winner of the BCS title game #1.
I feel for Mack Brown, to some extent: a play away from being undefeated and a screwy conference decision about which school plays in the conference championship game are the things keeping his team from a shot at the title.
It will be interesting to see if he tries to lobby any of his fellow coaches to vote with him in the event Oklahoma beats Florida. If the Gators win resoundingly, though, I expect this whole thing to quietly fade away.
