FootBlogPoll: Final

Editor's Note: This essay is dedicated to former Syracuse Chancellor and world-class alcoholic Kenneth Shaw. Granted, nothing that follows has anything to do with "Buzz," but I loved this picture so much it had to accompany my inebriated ballot.

The BlogPoll experiment has reached its apex with this, the final ballot of the 2005-2006 season. It has been, at the very least, an interesting exercise in discourse and many thanks go out to Brian for being the impetus behind this pursuit.

Over the course of the season, some interesting things came out of the BlogPoll, including:

  • Syracuse received one (1) total vote during the 15-week BlogPoll season.
  • I did not cast this vote.
  • Syracuse's lone vote for inclusion amongst the nation's 25 elite was cast in Week 1 by 50-Yard Lion who, surprisingly, thought that the Orange (21st ranked) was better than his hometown heroes, Penn State (25th ranked).
  • Other one-vote teams include: Arizona (Week 2), Duke (Week 1), Oklahoma State (Week 1), Rice (Week 1), Tulane (Week 1), and Tulsa (Week 16).
  • 23 teams were featured in the poll every week during the regular season.
I'll stop the list there because I'm sure Brian will do a more complete wrap-up this week.
