Shall we play a game?

mp_logo

I’m officially taking a temperature reading with this post.  We had less than two dozen folks participate in last year’s Mumme Poll, and, frankly, it’s not worth the trouble to run it for that few number.

And given that I satisfied myself a few years ago that approval voting was a less biased way to rank college football teams, the only reason Tidefan and I keep the Mumme Poll going is for the sheer enjoyment of participating.  So, unless there’s sufficient interest in keeping the MP in play, I intend to shutter it for good.

Let me know in the comments if any of you are still interested in casting ballots.

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 13

Thanks, Stanford.  You made my ballot selection easy this week.

  • Alabama
  • Clemson
  • Oklahoma

Really, that’s the fastest I’ve ever put a Mumme Poll vote together.

And then there were four.

  • Alabama

Quite a few games to keep my eye on next weekend, though.

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 11

This past week is the perfect rebuttal to all the idiots in the media who waste time fretting over the selection committee’s rankings in November.

It’s also a good reason to cull teams from my ballot, which is getting leaner and meaner… with more to come, I suspect.

  • Alabama
  • Clemson
  • Notre Dame
  • Ohio State
  • Oklahoma

There.  That didn’t take long at all.  (Although, yeah, I’m keeping an eye on Iowa and Oklahoma State.)

Mumme Poll results, Week 10

Well, we’re not exactly on the same page with the selection committee.

Rank Team Votes
1 Alabama 23
1 Clemson 23
3 Ohio State 22
4 Baylor 20
5 Oklahoma State 19
6 Stanford 16
7 Notre Dame 14
8 Iowa 9
9 Oklahoma 8
10 Houston 5
11 North Carolina 4
12 Florida 3
12 LSU 3
14 Utah 2
15 TCU 1
15 Navy 1

Three out of four.

We are starting to see consolidation, though, as only sixteen teams received votes.  And no doubt we’ll see even more over the next couple of weeks.

Not that it means too much, but given that Florida lost to LSU, I’m kinda surprised to see the two tied.

My Mumme Poll ballot, Week 10

With LSU’s loss and TCU’s, I had to rethink my ballot for the first time in a couple of weeks.

  • Alabama
  • Baylor
  • Clemson
  • Notre Dame
  • Ohio State
  • Oklahoma
  • Stanford

I’m pretty sure the Big 12 is overrated this season (which is why I omitted Oklahoma State from my ballot), but not positive.  Another week or two of games should sort that out.  Same thing with Stanford and Notre Dame.

At least I’m down to seven teams this week.  But up to ten minutes to put my ballot together.
