The 2012 Week 3 BlogPoll, which actually appears in Week 4 and is labeled accordingly even though it chronicles Week 3 results, has been released.
Also worth reading are Samuel Chi's simulated BCS standings.
Check out the combined efforts of 90 bloggers after the jump. My brief analysis follows. For statistics about the balloting, click here.
Alabama has one of the most commanding leads ever, with a standard deviation of just 0.10. Andy Hutchins says that's the lowest he's ever seen, and but for a lone wolf vote for Stanford, it would have been freaking zero.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma leads in standard deviation, meaning voters will be watching the Sooners' "prove it or lose it" game against us Saturday night with great interest.
The BlogPoll values Georgia more than Florida State, likely due to quality of opposition, and Stanford more than South Carolina (plus West Virginia higher than either), but otherwise, it parrots the "mainstream" polls' top 10.
I tend to think Florida isn't high enough given the quality of its road wins, but there's no arguing that road winners Notre Dame, Texas and the Gators shouldn't have jumped K-State after its lackluster performance.
Other lackluster winners Ohio State and TCU, as well as losers USC and Michigan State, also dropped quite a bit.
Nebraska is the first team out of the BlogPoll. I like to think my refusal to rank the Cornhuskers is responsible for them having slightly fewer points than Frank Solich's new team. Mwahaha.
P.S. Who the hell voted for Vanderbilt (1-2), Arkansas (1-2), Middle Tennessee State (lost to an FCS team at home) and Miami?
