    A ballot that would make Jimmy Olson proud.

    Wait, shouldn't Notre Dame be No. 2? ::)

    Why not Schiano or Grobe for Coach of the Year?

    Grobe was unanimous ACC coach of the year. WAKE FOREST is 11-2 and playing in the Orange Bowl. That's about as no-brainer a COY vote as there will ever be.

    And Boise State is usually behind Miami... nice to seem the smurfturfers jump a couple of notches in recent weeks..

    I like the love for Oklahoma.
    Really, there should be serious talk of them being in the national title game with one loss because their other "loss" to Oregon was a complete fraud.

    Schiano is a no-brainer as well. At the beginning of the year, if anyone had said Rutgers would have been an overtime away from a BCS bowl,they would have been laughed out of the room.

    Either Grobe or Schiano deserve it.

    I saw a release yesterday that Rutgers had announced Schiano was going to be given the award at the end of the week. Don't know whether it was official or not.

    Quick honest question Jason: There was talk of voters either 1: voting Florida 2 because they thought they were the No.2 team in the nation or 2: Voting to avoid setting up a rematch in the Harris/Coaches poll. Do you fall into either category even though you're vote is in the AP?

    Stopps did a heck of a job, too. Loses his quarterback before the season. Heisman candidate goes down for the season about halfway through. And in most people's minds, the Sooners actually just lost one game.

    The Big XII was down? Well so was the ACC.

    I voted Schiano first, Grobe second and Houston Nutt third, I believe, on my Eddie Robinson ballot. I guess if I had waited a few days, I might have flipped No. 1 and 2 because Wake's going to a BCS game and Rutgers isn't. Then again, Rutgers had a longer way to come. I saw Wake come into West Lafayette and beat a pretty good Purdue team three or four years ago. Can't imagine Rutgers could have come within 50 points of basketball-on-grass at that juncture.

    Why is Virginia Tech ahead of Wake Forest?

    Because Jason thinks they're better, and they probably are in the long run. As great as the Deacons story has been, and although they may deserve to be ahead of the Hokies, they have been fortunate at times.
