So, you may be wondering why our weekly Top 25 ballot hasn't appeared yet. Is it because I'm lazy? That's true, in part. Is it because I just got NCAA Football for my XBox, and I spent a good chunk of last night using Cal to pummel Maryland into submission, 135-7? Again, the answer is yes. Still, there's another good reason why our ballot hasn't appeared: it's not finished yet.
Each week, Yellow Fever, CBKWit and I put together a Top 25, and then the 3 ballots are averaged to come up with the ballot I write about each week. In the case of ties, we place higher the team that two out of the three voters preferred. However, 3-way ties are harder to resolve, especially if all three voters had the teams in different orders. This week, we had a 3-way tie for #1.
Texas, Alabama, and Florida all received a 1st place vote, a 2nd place vote, and a 4th place vote (interestingly, all 3 of us has Oklahoma at #3), and I know of no good way to break this tie. We could be like the Big XII South, and just use the BCS standings, but that's a stupid way to break a tie. Instead, I've decided to ask our tiebreaking voters: you.
So please, help us out, and vote in the attached poll. Tell us who YOU think should be #1. Feel free to leave a comment to try and persuade other readers. Our final ballot is due tomorrow morning, so I'll go with whatever the results are then.
