The final countdown

Alabama and Clemson put on quite a show in the national title game and are deserving the top two spots in the final Associated Press college football poll. My ballot includes Stanford, Ohio State and TCU, all bowl winners in the third through fifth spots. Michigan State, Oklahoma and Iowa, which filled those spots in my last ballot in December and were blown out in bowl games, moved down as a block in the sixth through eighth spots in the my final ballot. I contemplated moving the Hawkeyes into the ninth spot they ultimately ended up in on the final poll - flipping them with a one-loss Houston team that finished eighth - but settled on moving the Spartans, Sooners and Hawkeyes together after all ended up with similar results against similar competition. The 10th spot on my final ballot went to Notre Dame, which I just noticed was the same spot I voted the Irish on my preseason ballot. Ohio State, Michigan State and Iowa are among six Big Ten teams on my final ballot. I voted Michigan in 11th following its dominant win in Orlando on New Year's Day and positioned Northwestern and Wisconsin in the 16th and 17th slots, with the Wildcats dropping five spots and Badgers rising three following bowl performances. Here is a look at my final AP ballot: 1. Alabama 2. Clemson 3. Stanford 4. Ohio State 5. TCU 6. Michigan State 7. Oklahoma 8. Iowa 9. Houston 10. Notre Dame 11. Michigan 12. Mississippi 13. Baylor 14. North Carolina 15. Oklahoma State 16. Northwestern 17. Wisconsin 18. Oregon 19. Navy 20. LSU 21. Florida State 22. Utah 23. Western Kentucky 24. Toledo 25. BYU

    I like Ohio State at #3, Stanford at #4 and Iowa at #8. If Houston didn’t lose against an average UCONN, I would have put Houston at #8 and Iowa at #9. It wasn’t that Iowa lost to Stanford. it’s how badly they were defeated, out-coached, out-prepared and out-psyched. Also, CJB was not healthy and Iowa punched themselves out after the Michigan State game. So much pressure on the players from the media, fans ect.
