The release of the Harris Interactive poll ballots also revealed some interesting voting patterns. Man, do I love transparency.

Of the 115 ballots, all but two had Alabama No. 2 or No. 3. The two who had the Tide No. 4 were Todd Husak (former Stanford quarterback), and Jim Walden (ex-Washington State and Iowa State coach).
Oklahoma State had a wider range of results. Most had the Cowboys second, third or fourth, but a few knocked them down a few more pegs.
Three people voted Oklahoma State No. 6 including Bob Wagner (former Hawaii coach), George Wine (former Iowa SID), and Derrick Mayes (former Notre Dame player).
Three others had Oklahoma State No. 5 including Craig Morton (former NFL QB, Cal alum), Jeff Van Note (former Atlanta Falcon, Kentucky alum), and Scott Johnson (former Fresno State athletic director).
None of this really matters, ESPN’s BCS expert Brad Edwards said on Twitter.
“If every voter who had OKST at 4, 5 or 6 would’ve put them at 3 instead, final BCS avg would be Bama .942, OKST .938.”
So that’s settled. We can move on, right?
