I've been avoiding it as long as I can, because between trying to figure out who to rank, and more tryingly, how to rank the nation's Top 25, I've been searching for answers for the last few months. But with the initial Blogpoll ballots due next Monday, I decided to publish my first draft of my preseason rankings to make sure there are no glaring omissions. Should there be any changes, the final ballot will be posted next weekend.
The poll was created in accordance with the Blogpoll's stated intentions and guidelines:
The AP poll is full of voters who vote team X super high in the preseason because of its schedule; this is strongly discouraged by the BlogPoll. Preseason polls are supposed to be exclusively about how good a team is thought to be
As such, this preseason poll is NOT a prediction how the season will play out or who has the easiest road to the title. This ballot is strictly a one-man power poll.
