With the new ballot structure, it doesn’t take long to put a vote together. (Coaches, take note.)
- Boise State
- Ohio State
- South Carolina
- 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.
