A look at who's going which way in college football
As I mentioned in the blogpoll ballot post a while ago, I'm traveling this week and so that's all there will be for Kicking Off. I hope to have Internet access again beginning this evening, but Sprints could be sporadic as I try to prepare more substantive posts. Needless to say, we'll be focusing heavily but not exclusively on the SEC Championship Game this week. We'll also have some fun with bowl match-ups, etc. The complete draft BlogPoll ballot is after the jump.
|Last week's ballot|
Ties broken: TCU-Texas, Georgia Tech-Iowa, Stanford-Southern Cal (everyone's always tell me how important head-to-head is and how bizarre it is that I don't consider it decisive, so there), LSU-Cal-Oklahoma State and BYU-Wisconsin. As for the last one, I find ranking either team indefensible even though I was forced to grant a spot to Wisconsin, so it really doesn't matter to me.
