Below is my last ballot for the "regular season". You can find the actual poll here.
I really wanted to vote the Gators second. But, while the Gators rate at least a TD fave over most undefeated teams- the exception is probably Texas. So the Longhorns get the benefit of the doubt.
I am a little peeved that the BCS is paring TCU and Boise State (ed note: although if that is what it takes to get two mid-majors in and two BCS League teams out, fine). Both teams would acquit themselves well versus Cincinnati and Iowa- and isn't part of this BCS arrangement to give the mid-major powers shots against the big boys? the same big boys who simply won't ever play them away from home? I know I will be dead before the Gators go to Boise- but is it now too much to ask to let the Horned Frogs play the Bearcats some neutral? Instead we get the new and improved Poinsetta Bowl- separate but equal.
Disaappointing to see Houston lose those games at the end- both UCF and the C-USA Championship Game. Their great start- wins @ Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and @ Mississippi State- set them up to make national noise. Now, I'm not sure even a Bowl win over Air Force will get aC-USA team into the main national polls.
