Brady Hoke's final coaches poll ballot

As is custom, the final USA Today coaches poll ballots were released to the public Monday morning. First-year Michigan coach Brady Hoke is one of the coaches voting.

If you're wondering, he placed Michigan at No. 11 in his final ballot -- the Wolverines finished No. 12. Here's the rest of his poll:

1. LSU

2. Alabama

3. Oklahoma State

4. Oregon

5. Stanford

6. Boise State

7. Arkansas

8. Wisconsin

9. South Carolina

10. Kansas State

11. Michigan

12. Virginia Tech

13. Michigan State

14. TCU

15. Baylor

16. Georgia

17. Clemson

18. Nebraska

19. Oklahoma

20. Penn State

21. Southern Mississippi

22. Houston

23. West Virginia

24. Florida State

25. Cincinnati

For those curious, Michigan State coach and voter Mark Dantonio has Michigan State No. 12 and Michigan No. 13. And Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer, whose team will face Michigan in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, had the Wolverines at No. 14.

Also interesting, LSU coach Les Miles was one of three coaches to have Michigan at No. 8 in his final poll -- joining Air Force's Troy Calhoun and Fresno State's Pat Hill. Wake Forest's Jim Grobe and San Diego State's Rocky Long had Michigan at its lowest position, No. 18.
