2008 Final CBS Sports Blogpoll Ballot

Below is my final (draft) CBS Sports Blogpoll Ballot of the 2008 season.

First things first. The BCS would have us believe that Oklahoma and Florida were the top two teams in the nation, so you'd think that if the Sooners lost they should be ranked second... if the BCS formula worked. Going into the game, yeah, I thought these were the two teams that should meet, and I would if it were done all over again.

However, with Oklahoma's loss I believe I should acknowledge that other teams, such as Utah, had astounding seasons. USC belongs at number three for the way they manhandled the best team in the Big 10 (can you believe I just wrote that?), and Texas beat both Ohio State and Oklahoma, thus should finish above them.

Others.... Texas Tech or Oregon in the top ten, you tell me.

At at number 25, a homerific vote for Nebraska. We didn't beat anyone special this season, but we certainly had a pretty decent run at the end.
