My season’s end Mumme Poll ballot

Here we go.

  • Alabama*
  • Arkansas
  • Boise State
  • LSU
  • Michigan
  • Oklahoma State
  • Oregon
  • Southern Cal
  • Stanford
  • Wisconsin


  • Weirdly enough, the only change I could bring myself to make after bowl season was to give Alabama the tiebreaker.
  • Tough call for the last spot between Wisconsin and South Carolina, but I just think the Badgers would win that head-to-head match up.
  • It’s amazing to see how much the computers like three-loss Oklahoma.
  • I wonder how different everyone’s final rankings would look if Boise State had made that field goal in the TCU game.
  • Also getting consideration:  Michigan State and TCU.

Stupid AD tricks

It’s not like we’re unaware of the questionable decision making at Maryland of late – passing on Mike Leach to hire Randy Edsall to replace Ralph Friedgen, watching the program decline precipitously in Edsall’s first year and hiring the baggage-encumbered, über recruiter Mike Locksley as the new offensive coordinator.

Given what Locksley brings to the table, I guess a sort of “in for a penny, in for a pound” approach shouldn’t be overly surprising, but this sure seems like a dumb thing to do anyway:

New Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley will receive $500,000 in guaranteed compensation annually and be eligible for bonuses based on the Terrapins’ recruiting rankings…

Locksley will receive $25,000 if Maryland is in the top 40 of the Rivals.com or Scout.com rankings on signing day. He also will receive $20,000 if the Terps rank among the top four teams in the ACC on signing day…

At least they left Tom Lemming off the list.
