BALLOT BLOG: Yes, We're Actually One of the Cool Kids Now

Longtime readers of this blog will know that I have many, many pet peeves.

Foremost among those is the fact that until very recently, there were zero, count 'em, DE NADA, K-State blogs represented in the SB Nation BlogPoll.

Well, years of petulant whining (and, more importantly, a long-needed change in poll management) finally paid off, because yours truly is a newly minted BlogPoll blogger-voter. I blog. And I poll.

Follow the jump for my first effort at a slapdash, haphazard assortment of teams wildly susceptible to personal bias objective ballot.

P.S. If you're wondering why my first ballot is for the second week of voting, it's because I have the personal integrity not to rank teams before I've actually seen some of them play, or at least the results of their first game. Novel idea...

P.P.S. The above is a total lie. I just plum forgot. But I like the other thing better, so we'll stick with that.

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide
  2. Oklahoma Sooners
  3. LSU Tigers
  4. Stanford Cardinal
  5. Florida St. Seminoles
  6. Boise St. Broncos
  7. Wisconsin Badgers
  8. Texas A&M Aggies
  9. Virginia Tech Hokies
  10. Nebraska Cornhuskers
  11. Oklahoma St. Cowboys
  12. South Carolina Gamecocks
  13. Ohio St. Buckeyes
  14. Oregon Ducks
  15. Mississippi St. Bulldogs
  16. Arkansas Razorbacks
  17. Florida Gators
  18. Michigan St. Spartans
  19. West Virginia Mountaineers
  20. Baylor Bears
  21. Arizona St. Sun Devils
  22. Missouri Tigers
  23. South Florida Bulls
  24. Penn St. Nittany Lions
  25. TCU Horned Frogs

Rather than explain these rankings line-by-line, my preference is for our delightful readership to savage them in the comments. I'll do my best to defend my choices, but only through unvarnished criticism can I get any better at this.

Also, quick disclaimer: After about No. 18 or so, this started to become a massive crapshoot. We need to a see a lot more than one week of action from these teams, so these rankings will be very fluid for a month or so.
