The season comes to an end Thursday night, and with it comes the last Mumme Poll ballot. You’ll be able to cast a vote sometime shortly after the BCS title game is over until mid-afternoon on Saturday. We’ll publish the final results Monday morning.
For those of you who participated last year, the final vote will be handled the same way this time. For you newcomers, when you vote, you’ll see one change to the ballot format – the addition of a second tie breaker. Instead of voting for a top five and a second group of seven, you’ll be asked to vote for a number one, then your grouping of 2-5 teams, then the group of seven. The purpose of the added vote is to reduce the chance of a tie at number one even further (although I suspect with the greater number of voters this season, it’s probably superfluous).
We will be fine tuning the poll over the offseason, based on what we’ve observed this season and also from your feedback. There will certainly be some posts about that over the next few months and I’ll invite your comments on any proposed changes we have in mind. In the meantime, let me just say it’s been a gas hosting the MP again this season and a special thanks goes out to my 3SiB cohorts who made my life infinitely easier. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
Now, go think about whether a Georgia Tech team that lost two out of its last three games is worthy of top-twelve consideration…
