My Mumme Poll ballot, Week Six

With the new ballot structure, it doesn’t take long to put a vote together.  (Coaches, take note.)

  • Alabama
  • Auburn
  • Boise State
  • LSU
  • Nebraska
  • Ohio State
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • South Carolina
  • TCU


  • Oregon got my nod for the tiebreaker, but I gave serious thought to Boise State and TCU.  Ohio State’s looked good, but against a weaker schedule than those three.  I spent more time on the tiebreaker than any other decision except for the last team to make my list.
  • I’m a little uncomfortable with four SEC teams in the top ten, to tell you the truth.
  • And I wanted another Pac-10 team in the mix, but they keep cannibalizing each other.
  • Teams hovering in the background:  Stanford, Arizona, Florida State, Utah, Michigan State.

    Nebraska and Oregon are on a collision course.

    Ohio St will lose at least once.

    Auburn may go 2004 again, going undefeated and getting to play Boise St in the Sugar Bowl. That would be hilarious.


  2. I can tell by your ballot, that you also miss those extra two slots we had last year. Things get all squishy after the top 6 or 8 spots.

    Am I wrong to only include undefeated teams on my ballot this week? Which, of course, means Bama and Sackerlina are just off the ballot. See? I need my 11 and 12 spots back. 🙂

    I want Auburn to win these next four games, because I want Georgia to ruin their year. I am not sure we can do it, but if anyone’s going to do it, I want it to be Georgia.

    I too went with Oregon for the top spot as I thought their competition to date was better than Ohio State’s.

    My other struggle was with my final spot and I went with Michigan State over TCU. I gave the nod to the Spartans because I think wins over Wisconsin, Michigan, and Notre Dame is more impressive than blow outs over SMU, Baylor, CSU, Wyoming, and Tennessee Tech. TCU’s only quality win is over Oregon State at this point.

    Great minds, although I traded Michigan State for Oklahoma. That’s probably just because I hate OU, Stoops and they will just muck up any BCS game they get to anyway. (mostly kidding).

    Yes, I am also uncomfy with 4 SEC teams.

    The SEC group will be resolved by year end, my guess is there will be 2, maybe three left. That is the great thing about the SEC, there are enough true tests during the season, and certainly when you add the title game, to know who is King of the Hill. Our setup is the perfect balance to have, especially if you look at the designated rival each team has to face annually from the other division. Sure, there is some fluctuations with individual team strength on occasional years, but your butt will run a gauntlet every season and you will earn your title. Still the best title to hold in all of football.
