The final Bowl Championship Series standings turned out the way they did because coaches and Harris poll voters put their biases aside and made decisions based strictly on the cold, hard facts.
(We’ll pause here until you’ve finished laughing.)
Ever since the controversy of 2004 involving Texas and California shamed voters into revealing their final ballots the following year, picking apart the final USA Today poll has become the best day in December between bowl announcements and Christmas.
Harris voters had to reveal their final ballots too, but we don’t hold ex-jocks, former athletic directors, sportswriters and doughnut shop workers to the same standards.
The only thing scarier than seeing how some coaches voted is thinking back to all the years when we couldn’t see how they voted.
