2022 Mumme Poll, Week 12

Turnout dropped this week, back down to 277 participants.  The average number of teams appearing on a ballot was 4.9.  Only 35 teams received votes.

This week’s top 22:

The gap between the top two and the rest of the field enlarged slightly.  The gap between four and five actually decreased a little bit, but it’s pretty clear who belongs in our playoff field.

Speaking of which, here’s the selection committee’s top 22:

The interesting difference between the two is which team comes in at number five.  The selection committee went with two-loss LSU, while we voted one-loss Southern Cal into the spot.

Might be a little recency bias in our vote this week, with Vandy at 11th and Tennessee at 15th (tied with South Carolina, to boot).

As has been the case, time wasn’t a factor in choosing.

It probably took the CFP more time to book the hotel reservations.

Conference affiliation continues to favor the Big ten.

Ballots from Georgia voters declined to 60% of the total pool this week.

And here’s how our SEC Coach of the Year voting played out.

Congrats, Coach Smart!

(I’d love to see the Venn diagram of the folks who cast votes for Jimbo and those who had Michigan State on their ballots.  But I digress.)

  1. Don’t look now, but they are setting us up for a Bama showdown in the quarterfinals. Absolutely no reason for them to be ahead of Clemson or Tennessee.

  2. I only voted for four teams so I didn’t vote for any of these teams. How in the world does the committee have Tennessee behind both LSU and Bama? I can understand Bama somewhat, but not LSU. The Tigers are too high in both polls in my opinion.

    Maybe you should publish our votes like the AP so we can call out the morons each week!

    If Clark Lea coaches Vandy to bowl eligibility, then he should win CoY.

    Poor Eli Drinkwitz. The 0% coaches are not in alphabetical order and he’s dead last, even below the Auburn guy who’s already fired!

    I love the MSU TAMU peeps. It’s a damn shame those 2 aren’t playing in an actual toilet bowl. It might be the most watched non-CFP bowl game by GTP visitors.

    Jimbo for CoY, takes effort to screw up a program like that. Is he Saban’s secret agent to ruin a&m for the rest of Saban’s career just like Sark is going to do at ut?

    I think we all just love the snark. I started to choose Jimbo, but then decided Clark Lea deserves it.

    Clemson was ranked higher in the Mumme Poll than LSU. The first Georgia game I ever saw seven years old in Death Valley in 79 with my Grandaddy and scalped tickets in the end zone with Uncle Paul and Buck and Amp Arnold and Carnie Norris and heard a man cuss with proclivity for the first time I knew something wasn’t right about orange with all those Tiger Paws painted on the street and my Mama growing up in Hartwell and Clem’s Son next door in Anderson. Clemsoning was replaced by Dawgrading. But Vegas and real Dogs know a real bad rivalry. I hate Orange. But Clemson. Clem’s Son. That’s what hate is. 😂
