Preseason Blog Poll Time!


So as we head into the final week before, you know, actual GAMES start being played, it’s time for the pre-season Blog Poll to hit these fine world wide webs. If you aren’t familiar, in years past we have participated in the Blog Poll process, where each week different blogs vote in their own top-25 poll, and we’re going to stick with it again this year.  You can check out the weekly polls here, over at SB Nation. 

In our own voting, weeks we will go stricktly “chalk”, which is basically taking the AP or coaches poll and going lock-step with their choices.  I mean let’s face it, some weeks there just aren’t any upsets and they pretty much nail it in the media and coaches voting.  But other weeks, well, not so much.  Every Monday this season we will post out own ballot, so you can call me/us complete morons (highly likely) or pat us on the back for a JOB WELL DONE (highly unlikely)!  And hey, if you don’t like our ballot?  Feel free to fire away in comments….


Anywho, here’s the preseason version of our Top-25.  Yeah, it’s a lot of crapshoot right now, and quite frankly the polls are hard to guage for the first month of the season.  Things start really settling in once we hit October, but for now, here’s our best guess at the Top-25, pre-season style…..

Some of it looks pretty familiar if you have glanced at some of the preseason stuff, but we did make a few adjustments.  For example, I think Florida State is set to have a huge year in the ACC, and slid them up a few spots.  Who knows with what is going on in LSU’s house and all that crap, but they still look like a top-5 team to me?  And Boise State at #6 seems about right at this time, poised to leap over the Oregon-LSU loser if they can beat Georgia. 

That’s about it for now.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and as always, GO COUGS!
