Vote for the Mountain West

ESPN's SportsNation has a poll right now titled "Does the Mountain West deserve an automatic BCS Bowl bid?"

Right now the "No's" are winning with 52% of the roughly 3,500 votes cast so far. The states that are most for the MWC? Utah, Nevada and Maine (?). The states most against? Arkansas and West Virginia. Texas so far is in the "yes" column, with 53% supporting the MWC.

Fanspoll Final Top 25

Fanspoll reached out to me a couple of months ago and asked me to be a part of the panel that chooses Fanspoll top 25 at the end of the season (I think they asked a bunch of different bloggers representing just about every D1 school). Here is how it ended up shaking out, and while it is shccking to find Utah up at #1 (where I happened to vote them too), I would also like to think that my vote helped TCU secure the #6 spot ahead of Alabama.
