Ballots cast totaled 257, so, once again, there wasn’t a unanimous consensus around any single team this week.  Ballots averaged 9.1 teams this week, which has been consistent through all three polls.

Data dump time!

Here’s the breakdown by conference:

Where we’re from:

74% of us picked the Astros to win the World Series.

Finally, some random observations:

  • The first tier, defined by those teams appearing on at least 90% of all ballots, shrunk again.  Penn State sits by itself following that.
  • It’s interesting to see Clemson’s decline in the MP follow that in the AP Poll.  (The Coaches Poll still has the Tigers second.)
  • We’re still running Notre Dame behind Georgia, which is contrary to the other two.
  • We’re way down on Utah, compared to the other two polls.  Familiarity bias, or something else?

    I count 6 “elimination” games among the top 9 still remains in the regular season. I read that as not needing to expand the playoffs, but for SEC and Big 10 fans YMMV.

    P. S. Thanks for listing the results of the bonus question.

    That’s a very good looking list/ranking, at least from where I sit. I can’t see why any team after #17 would appear on any ballot (if we are talking playoff candidates, which I thought we were.) Think the order by probability is on target. Coach’s Poll, pfffft!

    On the baseball question, I couldn’t find a way around answering it. I didn’t even know who was in the World Series, much less have a clue who would win. Suggest an option for: Don’t know/don’t care so for non CFB related questions so some of us don’t distort the poll’s results. No way I should cancel out a voter who has an informed opinion.

    I believe Utah is flying under the radar, well, because, Pac-12 at night and all. That defense is legit and would play most, if not all, top 10 teams tough. What they are doing with their talent level is impressive, regardless of the overall state of the Pac-12.

      Have no issue with them remaining a “still in contention” pick but when it gets to nut-cutting time would you really think they could stand up to the top group.

    Praying that those 9 in bama live on the water/gulf coast

      My son and I are 2 of those alabammer 9. We are “living” just outside of Auburn right now, as he is attending a private school here, but….we have a home in Sandestin on the golf course and the Choctawhatchee Bay. Thanks for thinking of us…we’re surviving !
