Keith Pompey's final AP Top 25 ballot

Alabama just became a college football dynasty after winning its third BCS title in four seasons.

And after embarrassing Notre Dame, 42-14, in Monday night's BCS title game, the Crimson Tide is the easy choice to finish No.1 in my final AP Top 25 ballot.

Sorry Notre Dame fans, the Fighting Irish are not No. 2. Notre Dame dropped from first to fifth after being manhandled from start to finish.

Georgia nabbed the second spot over Ohio State and Oregon.


The Bulldogs gave Alabama all it could handle before losing to the Tide in the closing seconds of the Southeastern Conference championship game. In my opinion, the SEC final was the unofficial BCS title game.

Here’s the ballot I submitted before Tuesday morning’s deadline. Take a good look at it.

Tell me what you think. I want your comments and criticisms.
