Alberta got just one 10th-place vote, who was responsible for that? There was a method including the Golden Bears just because they grade out better in Simple Ranking System than a Mac team whose offence didn't produce a touchdown in two games this season. It also prevented having a ballot which was right in line with the final outcome, which brings to mind Mark Twain's saying about "when you find you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform."
