Re-alignment-apoolazooa is now underway according to reliable sources and for some of us skeptics, we will believe the change happens when the shifts have occurred and the teams take the field. I will say that some of the rumors are very intriguing, but I'd rather focus on how the Cats will do during the next season.
Last year the crowd sourcing of games did very well (11-1) on the pre-season polls. The weekly polls did not do as well, but still had
a respectable an almost random toss of a coin 7 out of 12 games predicted successfully (and I'm still wondering about the 3 people that voted for KU to win by more than 7). After the jump, last's years schedule, the 2012 schedule and the first poll.
For those of you unfamiliar with this, there are 4 polls (Sunday P.M. publishing) and you get to select the games that you think the Cats will win or lose. There is one poll for the 3 non-conference games and 3 polls for conference games. You are encouraged to attempt to sway others to your belief about the games in the comments section. The polls will not close until August 1st, so remember to vote early and
vote comment often or you can follow the Tammany Hall maxim of 'claim everything, concede nothing and if defeated allege fraud.'

Also I'm thinking about including stats in the weekly poll this year if I can automate the process, not sure that I can do statistical analysis at this point like Bill C but if you think this is beneficial let me know.
