Year End Blogpoll

Yeah, the final blogpoll of the year. It's been real fun throwing in my two cents. Looking back at my pre-season poll, I think it might be prudent for me to switch my methodology for assigning rankings. The resume method is something I paid attention during the year, but never seemed to have the time to implement it. Or maybe it was just easier for me to make a decision as to who I thought would win on a neutral field. Eight of the teams I had in my pre-season poll did not make the final poll. Most notably Iowa at #8 and Miami at #9. My pre-season rankings are in parenthesis.

Congratulations to Florida on an incredible game. I didn't see that one coming. And neither did Ohio St. Congrats to the Big East for going 5-0 in bowl games this year as well. Not quite dead just yet.

Update 01/10/2007 830am: I had to go back into the blogpoll widget and change Georgia and Va. Tech just because the dirty birds don't deserve to be ranked ahead of a team they just lost to. However, I'm not changing it here, because I just don't have time to.
