2016 BRING ON THE CATS TOP 25 POLL: Week 1

BracketCat catches everybody up with the first BlogPoll of the 2016 season.

BracketCat goes out on a limb and picks Houston No. 1, while the other seven BlogPoll voters go along with the conventional wisdom.

Due to the Labor Day delay in polling and a variety of other stuff I had going on this week, I am posting this quite a bit later than I like. Normally, these posts will appear at noon on Thursdays, prior to the next week's slate of games.

This year, the slate of voters is reduced by two. Returning to the BlogPoll are myself, Jon Morse, JT VanGilder, Luke Thompson, PurpleBrunette, TheBigE, wildcat00 and KSUEMAW!

The total amount of points available across all voters is 2,600, with each ballot allocating 325. The maximum available points for any single team this year is 200, which would a unanimous first-place set of votes.

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