Exit Poll FSU should play Ohio State for BCS title
Last week was a wild one. Michigan nearly knocked off Ohio State with a two-point conversion Auburn stunned No. 1 Alabama in what just might be the best ending in college football history (unle s youre Ja'Marr Chase Jersey a Crimson Tide fan, of course).In this weeks Exit Poll, we take a look back at what unfolded last week and look ahead to the big conference title games this week.Q: Its what everyone is talking about. If the season ended today, which team do you think should play FSU for the BCS title?Jared Zabransky: It should be the two undefeated teams at the top of the list -- Florida State vs. Ohio State.Anthony McFarland: Florida State and Ohio State today. If Auburn beats a Mi souri team ranked in the top 4 of the BCS that will give Auburn wins in back-to-back weeks over two of the top four of the BCS. No one else's resume is that strong.Jake Plummer: FSU should play Auburn. Both teams have earned it, especially Auburn. They seem to be a team of destiny this year. I can imagine how exciting it is to be on that team, those kids will remember this year forever, especially if they keep snatching victories from the jaws of defeat.Butch Woolfolk: It should be Florida State vs. Ohio State.Q: What surprised you most about Auburns upset against Darqueze Dennard Jersey Alabama?McFarland: That Auburn was able to run the football and that Nick Saban didnt have his team prepared for the final play of the game.Plummer: I was surprised to see Coach Saban fight for the extra second to be put back on the clock and then try a virtual prayer field goal and somehow forget to tell his players to cover downfield in case it fell short. Sometimes coaches just can't help being coaches.Woolfolk: The long touchdown return off the mi sed field goal with no time left on the clock was the biggest surprise. No one saw that coming as an end to this epic battle.Zabransky: The call at the end of regulation. That was something I would have thought Saban would have never done. The riskiest return in football is the mi sed (short) field goal. As a head coach you cannot risk that in those circumstances. You have to throw a Hail Mary and depend on your football team, which has been the best in the country for three seasons, to win the game. Bad call.IRON BOWL: | | Q: Did Michigan do the right thing going for two and the win against Ohio State?Woolfolk: I dont think any real football enthusiast would say that Michigan should not have gone for the win with that two-point conversion call. Michigan was outmatched. If the two-point conversion had worked, it would be long remembered as The Greatest Call in the Best Rivalry Ever.Zabransky: I like this gamble. To me it's on the flip side of the coin compared to the Alabama game. Michigan wasn't the better team and had the idea of winning the game when they had the chance rather than playing for overtime. I think this was a good call to go for two. I would've Cedric Peerman Jersey put Devin Gardner on the move to his right for a dual threat, so the play call wasn't a good one but the decision to go for two was.McFarland: Michigan did exactly what I would have done. Youre at home with momentum offensively and your defense absolutely sucks at stopping Ohio State.Plummer: I thought it was a great call to go for two. It was risky and exciting and had they scored the two-point conversion it could have gone down as one of the greatest calls ever. But it didn't work and Coach Hoke, who obviously went with his gut and not the statistical analysis spit out by some computer, has to A J Green Jersey answer the critics.Now comes the rapid fire segment of this weeks poll.
