My Mumme Poll Ballot – week 7

October 19, 2009

My vote for the Mumme Poll this week:

  1. Alabama
  2. Texas
  3. Florida
  4. Cincinnati
  5. Iowa
  6. Miami
  7. Southern Cal
  8. LSU
  9. Boise State
  10. TCU
  11. Penn State
  12. Oregon

First off, I don’t see how you can argue that Alabama is NOT the #1 team in the country right now. I was shocked that Florida was #1 in the BCS standings, that is just a testament to how the coaches usually screw it up. I’m even more puzzled as to how the computers have Florida at #1.

Secondly, some might not like that I have Texas above Florida, but I actually had Texas #1 to begin with in my top 25 ballot over at secsportshub. Alabama has overtaken them on my ballot, but Florida has yet to impress at all. A 10 point win over Tennessee left me doubtful, and a near escape at home against Arkansas left me really doubtful. Texas squeaked by Oklahoma this week as well… but that was Oklahoma. Not Arkansas. Bottom line is: Florida doesn’t have a very good offense. I still like Texas better.

Cincinnati and Iowa get the 4 and 5 spots, I think they’ve earned it with wins against legit opponents. Boise State is only number 9 because I can’t make a good enough argument to leave them completely out of the top 25 right now. I’m just waiting on them to get exposed, which will happen.
