Mumme Poll Ballot - Week 10

Mumme Poll here. Again, the Mummepoll requires you to rank the top five teams and then just select, in any order, the next seven. This intent is for a more original polling format.

1. Florida

--Beat Vanderbilt. Meh.

2. Alabama

--Beat LSU. Nice.

3. Texas

--Beat Central Florida, but why didn’t they pull away earlier?

4. Georgia Tech

--Beating Wake in overtime isn’t impressive, but Yellow Jackets are the beneficiaries of this week’s Top 12 carnage.

5. LSU

--Two losses: to Florida and LSU. Both close. That’s about what the number 5 team should look like.
--It’s wins like this week’s squeaker over UConn that make me doubt how high this team deserves to be ranked.

--Boise, pay attention. If you don’t have the best schedule in the country, the least you can do is blow out the teams you do play.

Boise State
--Teams that beat Louisiana Tech worse than they did: Auburn, Navy and Nevada. This is perhaps the most undeserving undefeated team in the poll.

--Most of us assumed this loss (or one like it) was coming. The question now is, how many more will there be?

--Quietly putting together a nice season. With Oregon and Southern Cal left on schedule, Wildcats have plenty of opportunities to impress.

--Like their fellow Big East brethren, not sure how impressive their body of work has been, but they have continued winning.

Ohio State
--Welcome back. Don’t pull another Purdue and embarrass us.
