Alabama had 3 close games and play two easy teams
Florida only had one close game which was a loss, and have two challenges to go
Tech only had 2 close games, and one challenge to go

so why is Bama #1????

For Pete's sake, you'll get your answer when Bama first beats Florida in the SEC Championship game, and then T2 in the NC.

I think Florida will beat Alabama, but that will be proven one way or another.
Personally, I am a Tech fan.
Here is how I figure the "votes" are skewed.

--ALABAMA (are lucky to be 11-0)
3 Close games for a #1 team:
Alabama vs. Kentucky, 17-14
Alabama vs. Ol Miss, 24-20
Alabama vs. LSU, 27-21 OT
3 mediocre Teams defeated, not close games:
Clemson, Arkansas, Georgia, Miss State
Alabama’s next opponent,(easy win)
Auburn, No offense, no challenge
--TEXAS TECH (should be #1)
2 Close games:
Nebraska 37-31 OT
Texas 39-33
3 mediocre Teams defeated, but not close games:
Kansas State, Kansas, Oklahoma State
Tech’s remaining games:(1 challenge, 1 easy win)
OU and Baylor
--TEXAS (should be #4)
2 Close games:
Oklahoma St. 28-24
Texas Tech L 39-33
3 mediocre Teams defeated, but not close games:
Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma
UT’s remaining game:(1 easy win)
A&M (4-7)
--FLORIDA (should be #2)
1 Close game/loss:
Ol Miss L 31-30, blocked extra point
5 mediocre Teams defeated, but not close games:
Arkansas, LSU, Kentucky, Georgia, Vanderbilt, South Carolina
Florida’s remaining opponents,(2 challenges, 1 easy win)
Citadel (3-7)
Florida State (7-2) lost to Wake Forest, GT
--OKLAHOMA (should be #3)
1 Close game:
Texas L 45-35, only loss
3 mediocre Teams defeated, but not close games:
Kansas State, Kansas, Nebraska
OU’s remaining games:(2 challenges)
TTU & OSU

bama is lucky to be 11-0, overrated
Alabama vs. Kentucky, 17-14
Alabama vs. Ol Miss, 24-20
Alabama vs. LSU, 27-21 OT
these three games were too close to be #1
Nebraska 37-31 OT
Texas 39-33
Tech is dramatic, what can i say?

I am SSSOOOOOO happy about Bama being #1!!!!!! I knew we could do it this year. If we can get past Florida, we will remain perfect. I hope we can play hard enuff to beat them, they have a pretty good team. Especially since Tebow has been whining about losing to Ole Miss or whoever it was he was crying about, I think they are gonna be determined to beat the #1 team in the country. BTW, Tebow is a big baby. LOL. OH, your asking about getting past Auburn, arent you? Well, Im not worried about that game because we WILL win! ROLL TIDE! ;)
