    I'm flip-flopping on my FWAA ballot. So I'm turning to the esteemed membership of this board for help.

    I waffled between Grobe and Schiano, eventually voting for Grobe.

    I'll also add that, at 7-4 with a game to go, Dick Tomey should be on that list of candidates too.

    Houston Nutt... they wanted him OUT a year ago and now he's gone 10-2...

    Very good case for Carr, from 7-5 to a possible BCS title game spot/

    I picked Schiano over Grobe because Wake Forest has been getting better the past few years, so this season, to me, wasn't out of nowhere the way Rutgers was.

    I think there's a guy in Los Angeles who did every bit as nice a coaching job as any of those guys, probably even better, considering the talent he lost from a year ago.

    Um ... uh ... NO.

    I'd have no problem with Grobe No. 1, but I'd also have no problem with Schiano No. 1. Let them go 1-2 in whatever order you want and then pick whoever you want at No. 3.

    I like Schiano at #1, Grobe at #2, but I also think a case can be made for Stoops, losing his star QB prior to the season and forced to use a player who played WR the year before as his signal caller. Battled through injuries to his all-american halfback and still may win the Big 12 and make the trip to a BCS Bowl if the Sooners can beat Nebraska in the Conference championship game. I think he's done a hell of a job with all of the stuff they've had to battle through.
