Reviewing the final polls

It wasn’t shocking that Florida won last night, but the manner was.
That was like Washington-San Jose State circa 1996 the way the Gators manhandled the Buckeyes.
And in my mind, given some of the other performances by Big Ten teams during the bowl season, throws the whole idea that Michigan and Ohio State were the top two teams in the country all season into question.
That’s why I was surprised this morning to see that Ohio State was still No. 2 in the final AP poll.
In fact, I am a voter in the Grantland Rice Super 16 Poll and filed my final ballot after the game last night.
Here it is:
1, Florida
2, Boise State
3, LSU
4, USC
5, Ohio State
6, Louisville
7, Wisconsin
8, Auburn
9, Michigan
10, Rutgers
11, Oklahoma
12, West Virginia
13, Arkansas
14, Texas
15, BYU
16, Cal
I think what may be overlooked when people consider Boise State is the Broncos’ early win over Oregon State in which BSU completely dominated. When you further consider that OSU won 10 games, beat USC in the regular season and Missouri in a bowl game it gives Boise State that much more cachet in my book. And I thought what both LSU and USC did in their bowl games allowed them to most past Ohio State, especially when you look at how easily USC beat Michigan.
Meanwhile, the Huskies can head into the off-season knowing that they will host four of the top 13 teams in the final AP poll next season — No. 2 Ohio State, No. 4 USC, No. 5 Boise State and No. 13 Cal.
