Dropped Out: Pittsburgh (#19), Ball State (#20), Northwestern (#21).
*Pittsburgh laid the big zero in their bowl game. Ball state lost big to unranked Tulsa. Sadly lovable Northwestern lost to Missouri. They all drop out and finish unranked in my poll.
*West Virginia, having had an excellent comeback for the Big East, appears, as well as Iowa and Florida State.
*Obviously Florida finishes #1. I had them #1 previously. Texas finishes at #2 after winning their bowl game. I still think it should have been Florida versus Texas for the championship. Then, following their big Rose Bowl win over PSU, USC finishes in third. I hate that though A because they played no one all year, they get to play basically at home, and then they bitch about things. Real nice USC. Try not going to a Bowl Game sometime. Asses.
* Most teams if they were highly ranked before and they lost only fall a few pegs because they did have actual tough bowl matchups. I'm willing to take a look at some though, as the middle of the poll has a lot of bowl losers hanging out.
*Utah finished fourth in my poll, only because I think the three teams above them would win heads up. However, Utah should be congratulated for going undefeated and being a non-BCS party crasher.
What did you think?
Also, later today will be my DePaul and Rutgers postgame reactions, as well as my much anticipated side of the story.
