Senior Bowl poll: Players split on BCS vs. Playoffs; like Nick Saban

image Each year, the Mobile Press-Register’s Tommy Hicks surveys participants of the Senior Bowl to gauge their opinions on some of the hot topics of the day.

At publish time there was no link to the story, but here is a sampling of some of the questions and answers. (story link here, now)

Not all players answered all questions. Some of the answers are surprising, some are not. All are interesting.

Which plan do you favor for determining the National Championship?

BCS 18
Playoff 10
Plus One 8

If you were starting a team, who would you pick to be the head coach?

Alabama’s Nick Saban 10
Ohio State’s Urban Meyer 6

Will the SEC claim its seventh national championship next season?

No 22
Yes 21

If it had played in the BCS title game against LSU, would Oklahoma State have won the championship?

No 24
Yes 19

If it had played in the BCS title game against Alabama, would Oklahoma State have won the championship?

No 24
Yes 19

Among other fun questions, players chose Halle Berry by a slim margin over Kim Kardashian as their choice to head the cheerleading team for a new NFL squad; and chose Oregon’s uniforms as their favorite by an overwhelming margin.

Both the North and South squads will do walk throughs of the game plan this morning. The game—which is nearly sold out—will be played tomorrow at Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is at 3:00 pm CST and will be televised by the NFL Network.
