Now, it's all over except the voting!

Wow. What a final weekend of college football. I don't have to tell you - but those were some amazing games: Texas/Nebraska, Alabama/Florida, Cincinnati/Pittsburgh, East Carolina/Houston, Clemson/Georgia Tech, Fresno State/Illinois. Hey, even the two unranked-over-ranked upsets in the Pac-10 (Arizona over USC, Washington over Cal) that kept up the record of high-level Pac-10 parity in 2009.

This is a H------ Trophy site, not a playoff site, but if you'll allow me a moment of personal privilege... After watching all those amazing conference championship games - the main thing that comes to mind is this: Wouldn't it be incredible to have four more weeks of awesome matchups like that (with either a 16- or 12-team playoff) culminating in a true national championship?

OK, back to the Stiff Arm Trophy.

Obviously, even though ballots have been out for a couple of weeks, almost everyone was holding their ballots until yesterday's games were over. As you see and hear H------ voters making final vote declarations, be sure to post 'em on our voter tips thread.

Expect a fast rush of votes in the next 48 hours. I'll be updating the projection 2-3 times a day. By mid-week, we should be up over 100 ballots and things will have taken shape. By Thursday or Friday, we should be up over 200 ballots and I'll be comfortable making a final projection.

Stay tuned!

You slipped and said the H word in the second paragraph.

So I just saw where Desmond Howard voted you have it listed on your site and he only had one 3rd place vote for Ingram. Can the votes only vote for one person , how many people are on the actual ballot. Isnt it electronic? I am just curious as how it works
