Dawg Sports Preseason BlogPoll Ballot Submitted . . . and Submitted for Your Feedback

New, 13 comments

I have a feeling I’m setting all of you up for a letdown by previewing a posting that probably isn’t going to be all that great, but, since this piece is about something else entirely, I wanted to let you know that I will be doing what marktheshark suggested I do, but, in the meantime, I have cast my preseason BlogPoll ballot, which looks like this:

Rank Team
1 Florida
2 Texas
3 Southern Cal
4 Oklahoma
5 LSU
6 Ohio State
7 Penn State
8 Alabama
9 California
10 Clemson
11 Oklahoma State
12 Mississippi
13 Georgia Tech
14 Virginia Tech
15 Boise State
16 Michigan State
17 Pittsburgh
18 UCLA
19 TCU
20 Oregon
21 Georgia
22 North Carolina
23 Brigham Young
24 Iowa
25 Southern Miss

The preliminary draft of my ballot was published and explained previously, with Nos. 1 through 10 being covered here and Nos. 11 through 25 being covered here. My otherwise inexplicable affinity for the outlying Clemson Tigers, Michigan St. Spartans, and Pittsburgh Panthers was previously explained here.

Changes to my first draft were made for the following reasons:

I wish to stress that, while this is a revised ballot, it is not (or, at least, is not necessarily) a final ballot. There is still time to provide feedback (even of the "What the heck are you thinking . . . ?!?!" variety) before the ballot deadline, which is more than a week away. As always, your constructive criticisms are invited.

Go ‘Dawgs!
