The D1scourse 30

← return to D1SCOURSE

Later today, the first BCS standings will come out. It’s a safe bet some combination of Alabama, Florida and Texas will be 1-2-3.

The Harris poll is one-third of the formula that spits out those standings. And, in the spirit of transparency, here is my ballot for this week.

Reminders: This is a results-based ranking, and the previous week’s rankings (both my own and the overall poll’s) are used at a minimum – preferably not at all. All evaluations are done based on accomplishments to date.

Included is each team’s record, regulation record (OT games treated as ties) and notable wins and losses through yesterday:
