Good Bull BlogPoll - Wrapping up the Regular Season

Jaime Valdez-US PRESSWIRE

Much has changed in three months. Top ranked USC to start the year is no more, and unranked Notre Dame sits atop the poll. Take a moment to fancy the inevitable 8-team playoff we'll once be blessed with. Let's dive into the final GBH BlogPoll for 2012.

Here are the results from the SB Nation BlogPoll populace:

And here is my ballot:

Some words:

  • First, an apology. I submitted my BlogPoll and erroneously dropped Stanford two slots. It was not intentional. I guess I was drunk on SEC 'shine.
  • I probably should have dropped Nebraska more. They are going to get drilled by that Georgia offense in Orlando.
  • Not much else changed in my poll. I think we have a pretty good read on these teams and what they're about.
  • The SEC is absurdly heavy at the top. Humpty Dumpty style.
  • I'll leave you with a question - if Vegas favors the Tide over the Irish, and YOU think the Tide will beat the Irish, shouldn't you just rank Alabama No. 1 right now? This is the puzzling, arbitrary, subjective nature of polling.
Per usual, I welcome your beefs and agreements in the comments.
