    Other: Barack Obama, for suggesting that we need a freaking playoff system.

    The whole point of a national champion is that they're the national champion. There shouldn't be any doubt, or the need for a stinking poll! But there is! Because the NCAA is made of fail!

    I voted Florida, but I would have liked to see Utah, USC, and Texas have the opportunity in a playoff.

    None. There needs to be a playoff to determine a true National Champ.

    Utah had the best season, and one of the toughest schedules. They get my vote.

    Lions. They say that the worst pro team is better than the best college team. Right?

    ...

    Right? [face_plain]

    lol @ Detroit... who is "they," anyway? :p

    What? Just because they didn't score a lot of points? That game was amazing from a defensive standpoint.

    it seemed more like the offenses were screwing up more than anything else. *shrugs* just me i guess.

    It was a hard fought game, not a great game. Entertaining though.

    Agreed. The fact that Florida held Oklahoma to only fourteen points was equally impressive, which is why they got my vote.

    I'll vote for Florida because it shut down the Oklahoma offense, but Utah was a close second.

    There is no NCAA Football Championship. Only a bunch of college players running around between Pepsi, Frito Lay, and Budweiser commercials with a trophy held up at the end of it.

    Only the NFL has an actual champion.

    I voted Utah. I can't be confident that they'd do the same thing to Florida that they did to Bama, but considering that the Mountain West was amazing this year (including three 10-win teams) and the Utes also beat a good Oregon State team (the only team to knock off USC), Utah has to at least get some serious consideration. And I'm not too sure people realize how good TCU was this year too. That was a fun team.
