BlogPoll: Welcome to the Jungle

BC Interruption applied and got into the college football blogpoll hosted by Brian over at MGoBlog (an excellent Michigan blog). What is the blogpoll, you ask? Well, it's basically like the AP or ESPN/Coaches poll, except that bloggers vote instead of the media and/or coaches.

Jeff and I will represent Boston College in the blogpoll this year along with the Eagle in Atlanta. Since Jeff and I really can't agree on anything, but we only get one vote in the blogpoll, we both ranked the teams separately and then averaged the two rankings together to arrive at our preseason blogpoll.

Here is our draft preseason Top 25 ballot:

1. USC
2. Georgia
3. Clemson
4. Oklahoma
5. West Virginia
6. Auburn
7. Ohio State
8. Florida
9. LSU
10. Missouri
11. Texas Tech
12. Texas
13. Kansas
14. Wake Forest
15. Virginia Tech
16. Arizona State
17. Tennessee
18. Wisconsin
19. Brigham Young
20. Boston College
21. Illinois
22. Penn State
23. California
24. Oregon
25. Fresno State

Others receiving votes: South Florida, Alabama, Oregon State, Connecticut

Two guesses as to who put Connecticut in his Top 25! Also one of us ranked Boston College at #15 and the other at #25, so we split the difference and have the Eagles at #20. Call us overly optimistic.

We need your help though. Weigh in on our Top 25 preseason blogpoll in the comments section below. This is just a draft and we could easily be persuaded to tweak these rankings a little (it's just a preseason poll after all). Our final version of the preseason blogpoll is due this coming Monday, August 18. Go Eagles!
