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.
Adjustments were made by adding in the absent Iowa in the 12 spot. I think that is accurate they had to block back to back field goals to beat Northern Iowa, and then they gave up 14 fourth points to hang on to beat power house Arkansas State from the Sun Belt. Their best win is a ten point victory over Arizona who is some 22nd in the BCS rankings.
Then I tossed out Nebraska and inserted South Carolina, mainly because of a decent record. Yes, Idaho is staying the polls partly because they are 6-1 and the bottom five spots are a real toss up so why not give some live to the Vandals who historically have been one of the twenty worst football teams year after year.
TCU at four! Again, why not their defense is amazing, and for the tools on Sporting News Radio last Saturday who said TCU's offense is just ehh. Look at the numbers they are 16th in the nation in scoring offense and 30 or more points in four games.
