The final regular-season ballots of the 59 coaches who vote in the USA Today poll where made public Monday, and while there were no major controversies, it's an interesting list to pick through.
Jon Solomon of the Birmingham News found several noteworthy items:
Washington State's Paul Wulff, left, ranked two-loss Oregon ahead of Cincinnati and Boise State, teams that are a combined 25-0.
Missouri's Gary Pinkle put Boise State at No. 9, behind two-loss Penn State, two-loss Oregon (which lost to Boise State), and two-loss Ohio State.
Fifteen coaches voted for their team. Of the 15 coaches, 12 jacked up the ranking of their team by an average of six spots from where it actually finished. Pinkel and North Carolina's Butch Davis were the biggest abusers, each voting their team 14 spots higher than it finished. Oklahoma's Bob Stoops boosted his team by 12 spots.
Stanford's Jim Harbaugh ranked his team 12th, five spots above its next-highest ranking and nine below the Cardinal's final spot at No. 21. Harbaugh ranked Stanford ahead of two teams that beat the Cardinal (Oregon State and Arizona), plus Virginia Tech and Iowa.
Houston's Kevin Sumlin, whose team lost to East Carolina in the Conference USA title game, ranked the Cougars one spot ahead of the Pirates.
Texas Christian's Gary Patterson voted his team No. 2 behind Alabama. He was joined by Navy's Ken Niumatalolo, Ball State's Stan Parrish, former Nevada Las Vegas coach Mike Samford, former Louisiana Monroe coach Charlie Weatherbie, and Sumlin. All of those coaches are from non-BCS leagues.
Weatherbie gave Texas its lowest ranking, No. 4.
The Harris Interactive poll accounts for another third of the BCS formula. The ballots of Harris votes can be viewed by clicking here.
The other third is an average of six computer rankings. Here are links to each of those ranking systems:Peter WolfeAnderson & Hester
