December 2010 Archives

I haven’t been keeping up with my Calix Cari polls this year for collage football. But now that the regular season has ended, I have found time to produce one. The events of this season have been rather unpredictable. Of course by the end of the season there were few surprises. Auburn appeared out of nowhere to become #1 on the strength of a once-in-a-decade player who fit perfectly into their offensive system. (Yay, for the booster who had cash to spare in this economy. We will see if their season stands the test of time.) But in my calculation Auburn is only #3, behind Oregon and ¡Stanford! (I still think Harbaugh would make a smooth transition into the coach’s chair at UGA but wouldn’t be there long. It’s good that Richt was retained.)

It appears my algorithm likes the Pac-10 over the SEC, and Auburn lost ground because of its tight victories, early in the season.
