2009 CBS Sports BlogPoll Top 25 Ballot: Week 15: End of the Regular Season

Here’s my ballot for this week’s CBS Sports BlogPoll Top 25 hosted by — as you might imagine — CBS Sports.

Week 15

Through 6 December 2009

Ahhh, 2009 college football regular season, we barely knew ye.  Yes friend and neighbors, here we are at the end of the regular season.  Thus, here is my final ballot for the 2009 regular season, the last ballot until after the completion of bowl season.  While I am sure some will disagree with some of my rankings, they are what they are: little more than my subjective assessment on the powers of college football.  Most of these should be fairly obvious.  Either way, here is is:

Week 14

2009 CBS Sports BlogPoll Top 25 Ballot: Week 12

Here’s my ballot for this week’s CBS Sports BlogPoll Top 25 hosted by — as you might imagine — CBS Sports.

Week 12

Through 15 November 2009

While it didn’t seem that way at the time, this weekend was apparently a bit of a whirlwind in in the world of college football, as the entire mid-section of my poll ballot from last week emptied itself out.  As a result, there is a lot of movement in my ballot for this week with the middle and the bottom tiers of my week 11 ballot trading places.   On another note, I am — yet again — in the midst of preparing for trial and, thus, it will have to be short and sweet this week.   I know, I know, it was pretty short and sweet last week, and the week before that, and so on.   All I can say is that I do have thoughts on many topics related to the world of college football, however, due to the frenetic pace that attends an active litigation practice, I simply will have to wait before delving into the details of my random obserations.  That said, here it is for this week, without further comment. I’d actually be a bit surprised if the reasoning behind the changes in my ballot for the week weren’t fairly apparent, but I’ve been surprised (and wrong) many times before.  Either way, here is is:

My Ballot for the Week

Rank Team Delta
1 Alabama
2 Texas
3 Florida
4 TCU
5 Cincinnati
6 Ohio State
7 Georgia Tech
8 Pittsburgh
9 Boise State 1
10 LSU 4
11 Penn State 5
12 Oregon 5
13 Oklahoma State 5
14 Wisconsin 6
15 Brigham Young 6
16 Virginia Tech 7
17 Stanford NR
18 Southern Cal 9
19 Utah 7
20 Clemson NR
21 Miami (Florida) 10
22 Houston 9
23 Navy 1
24 Rutgers NR
25 Iowa 10
Last week’s ballot
Dropped Out: Arizona (#19), South Florida (#22), Auburn (#25).

Having taken the time to consider my feeble attempt at ranking the powers in college football, feel free to try and convince me that I am wrong — which is part of the way the BlogPoll is supposed to work.  I promise that I will consider all insults comments.

2009 CBS Sports BlogPoll Top 25 Ballot: Week 11

Here’s my ballot for this week’s CBS Sports BlogPoll Top 25 hosted by — as you might imagine — CBS Sports.

Week 11

Through 8 November 2009

This past weekend’s slate of college football games were—for the most part—supposed to be dull and boring.  There were very few “key” matchups on the schedule and most thought it might be a snoozer.  Well, that simply did not turn out to be the case.   Thus, there are a number of shake-ups in my BlogPoll Top 25 ballot for this week.  Most of these should be fairly obvious.  Either way, here is is:
