Week Nine BlogPoll Ballot: The Question Isn't "Auburn or Oregon," It's "Rhett or Scarlett"

New, comments

My SEC Power Poll ballot has been cast scrapped, so it is time to turn my attention to this week’s BlogPoll ballot. Yeah, Saturday stunk, but, as was pointed out in one of the comment threads, tomorrow is another day, so here goes:

You know what? It turns out I’m still not there yet. It turns out that I’m still in Rhett Butler "Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn" mode. This was the most gut-wrenching Georgia loss since the 2008 Alabama game.

When casting my BlogPoll ballot, I’m supposed to tell you what I watched. This week, I didn’t watch much. I cast disinterested glances at the Boise State-Louisiana Tech game on Tuesday night, I had the Florida State-N.C. State game on in the background with the sound muted while I transcribed the tape of my interview with Robbie Burns on Thursday night, and I killed time while waiting for the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party to start by watching portions of the South Carolina-Tennessee game before watching the Georgia-Florida game. Once our game was over, I turned off the TV and I haven’t turned it back on since.

The bottom line remains the same. There’s absolutely no way the Bulldogs should have lost that game, and, until I come to grips with the fact that they did, I frankly don’t care about which 25 college football teams are the top 25 teams in Division I-A. All that really matters is the fact that Georgia isn’t one of them.

Don’t be surprised if this theme continues throughout the week.

Go ‘Dawgs!
