BRING ON THE CATS TOP 25 POLL: Week 1

BracketCat finally catches everybody up with the first two polls of the 2015 season, before unveiling this week's slate.

Well, BOTC readers wouldn't have had any way of knowing this, but the Bring On The Cats Top 25 Poll has been ongoing since before the season started. However, your lazy, overworked host simply hasn't had the time to post it.

In preparation for the unveiling of this week's results, this post will serve to catch everyone up on the how the preseason and post-Week 1 votes shook out, in order to provide some historical perspective. Week 2 follows here.

Once again, your voters will include myself, EMAW 4 Ever, Jon Morse, JT VanGilder, Luke Thompson, nugget1224, PurpleBrunette, wildcat00 and KSUEMAW! And this season, Curtis Kitchen drops off in favor of TheBigE.

In this post, poll results will be posted without analysis, for obvious reasons of being ancient history at this point:
