Hooray!! The first BlogPoll has been released. It's comprised of some 90 voters each representing their respective school. This is my first year participating. You can see the voter breakdown here.
A quick look of the top 5 has it this way:
#1 Ohio State (20 votes)
#2 Texas (11 votes)
#3 Auburn (9 votes)
#4 USC (5 votes)
#5 Notre Dame (8 votes)
The complete poll can be seen here. USC #4, Cal #10 and Oregon #21 are the only Pac-10 teams listed in week 1.
There are a couple of funny notes to the first poll:
1. Cal got a first place vote form a Texas A&M Blogger, here's his reasoning.
OK, well we're all entitled to our opinions.
2. The guys at EDSBS were particularly hard on UF proving once again that Gators eat their own. They earned the Straight Bangin' Award.
Oh the Pain!
3. Fellow SBN Blogger Rakes of Mallow has potentially put themselves in a bad spot with other ND bloggers for their ranking of ND.
Hang on guys its about to rain!
