The Thanksgiving QuackPoll is Stuffed with Troll

New, 9 comments

Because who reads these things on a holiday anyway?

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

After yet-another unimpressive Florida State win last week, I decided I'd be an asshole. I ranked the 'Noles #5, out of my own personal college football playoff.

A day later, I saw David Piper's poll, with Florida State at #6, and I wasn't the biggest asshole anymore. Did our tomfoolery affect the top 25? Let's take a look:

Rank Team Points Change CFP Rank
1 Oregon (5) 197 0 2
2 Alabama (1) 183 +1 1
3 Florida State (2) 181 -1 3
4 TCU 173 0 5
5 Mississippi State 167 +2 4
6 Baylor 164 -1 7
7 Ohio State 158 -1 6
8 UCLA 133 +8 8
9 Michigan State 128 0 10
T-10 Kansas State 119 0 12
T-10 Arizona 119 +1 11
12 Wisconsin 107 +1 14
13 Georgia 103 -1 9
14 Arizona State 101 0 13
15 Georgia Tech 84 +3 16
16 Marshall 79 -1 24
17 Auburn 65 0 15
18 Ole Miss 59 -10 19

HYPOTHETICAL PLAYOFF

They're the same as last week, and of course you read last week's QuackPoll, so I won't waste your time.

ASK JERRY NEUHEISEL

Hey Jerry, UCLA is up to #8 in the country!

I know, I'm as confused as you are.

AWARDS

Dom Pruett has been presumed dead after missing a second consecutive week of voting. Check the beds of your local rivers for a snarky guy.

Brandon has Florida State #1, and Ohio State #4. That seems drunk enough for accolades.

Shockingly, this week's sheep is Rusty, for having a near-identical top 7 as the AP. What happened to the old contrarian? I miss that jerk.
