Officer_Warr Ballot for 2022 Final

Ballot Type: Hybrid

Submitted: Jan. 10, 2023, 10:03 a.m.

Overall Rationale: It should be noted that the intent of this poll is that the CFP championship or surrounding games are additional data points. They are not final determining factors if a team should be nth spot. My spreadsheet, and me individually, still assesses the whole body resume of the league in order to evaluate them.

Rank Team Reason
1 Georgia Bulldogs Far and away the best team. Holistically, they were so strong they would have been #1 if the score against TCU was reversed.
2 Michigan Wolverines Comfortably behind Georgia, comfortably ahead of Ohio State. The only team to finish with 1 loss keeps them at second.
3 Ohio State Buckeyes Gaps start to close, but maintains a solid whole body ahead of TCU, Alabama
4 TCU Horned Frogs
5 Alabama Crimson Tide
6 Penn State Nittany Lions
7 Tennessee Volunteers By the spreadsheet, Tennessee and Penn State literally tied (to the hundreths of a point) which is very peculiar. I opted to be a homer, but also went with the preference for consistency rather than higher highs and lower lows. You can do a +1/-1 to the total rankings to see if they make a difference.
8 Tulane Green Wave
9 Washington Huskies
10 USC Trojans
11 Oregon Ducks
12 Troy Trojans Troy had the quietest season of such success this year. They played outstanding in what was no soft conference even if it wasn't the strongest. Definitely worth their recognition.
13 Clemson Tigers
14 Kansas State Wildcats
15 Oregon State Beavers
16 LSU Tigers Yes people are going to make remarks about LSU being ahead of Florida State. But the whole body showed LSU being comfortably ahead of FSU this deep into the rankings, and consequently I did not feel a 1-point victory warranted the flip against the whole body.
17 Florida State Seminoles
18 Utah Utes
19 UTSA Roadrunners
20 South Alabama Jaguars
21 Notre Dame Fighting Irish
22 Texas Longhorns
23 Pittsburgh Panthers
24 UCLA Bruins
25 Mississippi State Bulldogs
