Jesse Kurtz's Final Top 25 Poll - Sunday, December 7th

Am I a genius, or just lucky? You be the judge!

  For the record, I still think Texas should have been playing in the Big 12 Title Game.  With that said, Oklahoma was VERY impressive!... and since they're the Big 12 Champs, they get my vote to play in the National Title game based on a non-negotiable rule I promised myself I would live by when I was honored with an invitation to vote in the Harris Poll: A team cannot play in the BCS Title Game if they did not win their conference.  I witnessed this happening first hand in 2001 when I covered Nebraska.  The Huskers lost to Colorado (remember 62-36????), didn't play in the Big 12 Championship Game, but still played Miami in the Rose Bowl for a National Title.  It was a disaster and set the table for my one rule I live by when I submit my weekly rankings.

  While I was unhappy last week that Texas got passed over, I am rather excited with  the likely title game matchup.  Back in September on this very blog I predicted a Gators-Sooners national championship.  Urban Meyer vs Bob Stoops, Tim Tebow vs Sam Bradford.  This should be fun!

  Thanks for reading this blog each week.  It's been fun talking college football with you.  I hope to do it again next season if I am fortunate enough to receive an invite back onto the Harris Poll Panel.

  Until next time, keep livin' the dream.... Jesse Kurtz, KKTV Sports Anchor/Reporter
