I was working on this while I was watching the national championship game, so this is very preliminary, but I wanted to get it out there for your inspection, your comments, and your questions.
Bear in mind, as always, that this is a resume-based ballot and that I started from a clean white piece of paper, so previous rankings have no bearing and the results of all games against Division I-A competition are weighted equally; what the Alabama Crimson Tide did against the Virginia Tech Hokies on Labor Day weekend had as much to do with the Tide's final ranking as what they did to the Texas Longhorns tonight.
Here, in my view, are the top 25 teams in the land:
2. Boise State
7. Ohio State
10. Georgia Tech
11. Virginia Tech
13. Miami (Florida)
16. West Virginia
17. Penn State
21. Ole Miss
23. Oklahoma State
25. Texas Tech
Others Receiving Consideration: Central Michigan, Navy, Rutgers
Naturally, I haven't even cast a ballot yet---I don't even know if the BlogPoll voting mechanism is open yet---but I wanted to get that out there, inasmuch as this is the one that will stand against history.
Let me know what you think in the comments below.
