No Tyrann Mathieu? No problem. LSU's still our No. 1.
There are five days until Florida's September 1 opener with Bowling Green. There are 51 entries left in the 100 For 100 series. Am I cheating by combining the BlogPoll ballot with the 100 For 100? You bet your life.
Here's my provisional preseason BlogPoll ballot. It's not due until Tuesday, so I invite you to tear it to shreds in the comments.
I already hate that I dropped West Virginia so far, so I can tell you with absolute certainty that I'm going to be tweaking some teams here.
But, on a more important note: I can tell you that the BlogPoll's going to be back and that I'm going to be administering it again this year ... and that I want the Alligator Army ballot to be the best one submitted every week, based on the resumes of the teams, obedience to the principle that a team that is ranked higher than another should defeat it more often than not on a neutral field, and community feedback. Help me make that happen?
