Top 25 College Football BlogPoll Is Officially Out

New, comments

Apparently there was some confusion to when the preseason BlogPoll would be out, but it is out today and the adjustments are in for those non voters where the votes were calculated in alphabetical order so no Arkansas State, Air Force, or Colorado State are in the other receiving vote category.  So below is the official blogpoll now on SB Nation.

I mentioned this before that Brian Cook at MGoBlog is the founder of the BlogPoll and he is going to be posting his excellent analysis of the poll that ranges from who the homers are in voting and wack voting from voters.

So definitely go check that out.

Here is an excerpt of the first paragraph there:Total Ballots: 117

Each week the BlogPoll comes out, we will break it down into the following sections to analyze the results ...

Justify Your Existence

Notable differences between the BlogPoll and the coaches' poll (excepting USC, which is eligible for this poll since it doesn't have any impact on the BCS and ineligible to the coaches for the opposite reason):

Boise State is No. 3 here, No. 5 there.
LSU is No. 20 here, No. 16 there.
The blogpoll is higher on Oklahoma and Georgia Tech by two spots.
Not a whole lot of difference here, but it's early.

Again here is my poll to compare with the new poll

And now onto the poll.
