Florida up to No. 2 in Week 9 BlogPoll: Gators get 16 first-place votes

Florida's road to 7-0 hasn't been easy, and that's earned the Gators a lot of love in the BlogPoll.

Jim Brown-US PRESSWIRE

Winning as often as Florida has in 2012 brings with it a measure of esteem. The Gators take the No. 2 spot in the Week 9 BlogPoll as a result.

Total Ballots: 79 | Votes by team | Ballots by voter

I'm going to write a bit more about this on Wednesday, but I actually think Florida's underrated in the BlogPoll this week — I have us No. 1, but I'm surprised that there are only ("only) 15 other votes of 79 that agree.

In lieu of more substantive analysis for now, here's the list of the 15 other voters who put Florida No. 1:

  • SEC blog Team Speed Kills
  • Indiana blog The Crimson Quarry
  • Notre Dame blog One Foot Down
  • Washington State blog CougCenter
  • Virginia blog From Old Virginia
  • Oklahoma blog Blatant Homerism
