Maize n Brew's Final Regular Season BlogPoll Ballot

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

And so it was, Notre Dame and Alabama were the pretty much uncontroversial two teams to play for the BCS championship. Thus we all wept because it meant that either the SEC would win another title, or Notre Dame would Return To Glory (TM).

Final thoughts:

With Bama's win over Georgia (in what was a much harder fought game than I imagined it would be) Bama makes its case for the national title game and gets it by a nose over the similarly impressive Florida. If you voted Florida number two (you wouldn't. Nobody would.) I wouldn't blame you. Still, it looks like the BCS got it right this year. While Notre Dame might get housed by the Tide (might being the operative word), there isn't a team in the country with a better claim to a spot in the game than the Irish.

Excuse me while I go throw up.

After that pretty much everything stays the same. The only other teams in the top ten that played were Stanford (narrow winner over UCLA) and Oklahoma (ditto, TCU). Neither result is grounds to move either team. In fact, the biggest mover is Nebraska, thanks to an epic beatdown at the hands of Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. Seriously, that was a stinker. Nebraska looked like it shouldn't have even been on the same field as Wisconsin. Hooray, Big Ten.

After that you had better believe I'm pulling Nebraska out of the top 25.

Finally, Northern Illinois gets my vote for a BCS game.
