The Blogpoll is set up by MGoBlog and is a collection of bloggers who actually watch the games, which is more then what the coaches, AP, or Harris poll voters can say. The poll is so respected that CBS Sports is behind the poll and it is posted along side the polls that actually count. Here is an explanation of the Blog poll from Brian himself.
Some adjustments from the draft with Florida dropping to four, because they have not been too impressive and if not for a laser pass by South Carolina's Stephen Garcia that pin balled off the receivers helmet Florida might have lost.
Temple gets into the poll at 25, because they are 8-2 going to their third ever bowl game and first since the 1974 Garden State Bowl. That 25 spot is usually left for an impressive mid-major. By persuasion Utah jumped BYU, and then I raised Stanford even more to 13th in the poll. Yes, USC is still out of my poll.
Let me know what you all think. Is this even close?
