    Individual Voters - Coaches & Harris

    Tomorrow both the Harris Poll & Coaches Poll will release each individual voter's ballot, we will be able to see where Alabama and Oklahoma State vote came from and who may have tried to pull a fast one. I think we'll see a couple votes that came in low for Oklahoma State and I also firmly believe that we'll see a few votes that put Alabama way down in an attempt to avoid the rematch.

    I'll post them tomorrow when I see them, or someone else I'm sure will post them when they become available.

    Thoughts on which coach submitted the worst ballot?

    If the SEC had been screwed, there would be some voters in need of upgrading their security system.

    I wonder if any coaches kept Stanford ahead of Okie State.

    Re: Individual Voters - Coaches & Harris

    The USA Today has released the Coaches Poll individual votes: Graphic: How coaches voted in USA TODAY poll – USATODAY.com

    Notes of interest:

    Alabama had only #2 and #3 votes, in fact 42 of 59 were #2 votes.

    Oklahoma State had the other 17 #2 votes, but then also had a mix of #4 and even a #5 vote; who did such a thing:

    #4 votes: Cutcliffe (Duke), Marrone (Syracuse), Pinkel (Missouri), Saban (Alabama), and Shaw (Stanford) - They all had Stanford at #3

    The lone #5 vote was from Calhoun (Air Force) - He had LSU, 'Bama, Stanford then Arkansas...

    Re: Individual Voters - Coaches & Harris

    Why would Saban do that to a real conference champion?

    I think he drank more than a shot before submitting that ballot.

    Re: Individual Voters - Coaches & Harris

    Other interesting votes:

    Bailiff (Rice) had Texas #25 (only coach to have them ranked)
    Peterson (Boise State) gave the lone #25 vote to Rutgers


    How about Kansas State, what did voters really think of them?

    Briles (Baylor) had them at #6, highest of any coaches
    Rhoads had them at #7
    Franklin (Vandy) had them at #15; Porter (Memphis) gave them #16 & Miles (LSU) had them a #17

    These examples just confirm to me that we are in dire need of a playoff system. How the hell can a component of the BCS be a coaches vote?......there is no way that is going to be fair. K State at 17th??? Are you freaking kidding? I lost all respect for Miles when I saw that. Just horrible. We need to be able to settle this on the field. Freaking ridiculous.

    Re: Individual Voters - Coaches & Harris

    Coaches look political.

    Sagarin has ISU as #29 and Iowa #43 and Tulsa #31.
