This year, friend of the site Jason Collette of Rotowire/DRaysBay/Baseball Prospectus and I will but our considerably large heads together (seriously, we both wear fitted hats above the 7 1/2 size depending on haircuts) to chime in on our site’s poll for SB Nation.
The SB Nation BlogPoll Top 25 is a transparent, authentic weekly college football poll. More than 100 of the most knowledgeable college football bloggers representing fans from virtually every rooting interest align weekly to rank the Top 25 college football teams. Every ballot is available for review.
After Week One we will spend many more pixels supporting our positions – for now this our best probabilistic exercise of what will all shake out after bowl season.
