Notes
  • Apologies to Boise State. I was wrong. When the smoke cleared the Broncos ended the season as one of two unbeatens with solid wins over Oregon and TCU. Their defense is much better than I previously thought and they'll be a very tough out for us next season. They're a scary team entering 2010 and if anyone has the Broncos lower than third in next year's preseason poll they just don't watch a lot of football.
  • USC and Ole Miss are on the ballot because I couldn't find any other teams that deserved to be on the ballot. Make your case for someone else in the comments.
  • The teams that had the most impressive bowl wins, Nebraska and Wisconsin, also make the biggest jumps in the ballot. 
  • How far should Miami or Georgia Tech fall after shitting the bed in its bowls?
  • Florida proved it's the best one-loss team by eviscerating previously unbeaten Cincinnati, which was the BCS Committee's wet dream.
  • Who should be ranked higher?
  • Who should be ranked lower?
