((What is the BlogPoll?)
With that in mind, it's time to submit a final ballot for the poll. In his opening remarks for the season, BlogPoll proprietor Brian of MGoBlog asked that we not just vote a team number one because they finished last year number one.
So, naturally, that's exactly what I'm going to do this year...I'm voting Texas number one.
Let me explain a few of the changes:
Added Wisconsin: Bucky should field one of the most improved defenses in Division I-A this season, thanks in part to the depth they were able to develop last year. Not only that, but they have a senior quarterback to run the offense, provided that his knee doesn't get in the way.
Moved Arkansas down: After further study of the SEC and the Hogs, I decided I had them a bit too high.
Took Tulsa out: Numbers game. They'll be back if they can prove they're top dog in Conference USA, as I have predicted they will be.
The poll will be out later today (?), and I'll be back with more college conference previews either today or tomorrow. The MAC West is the next post, followed by the Mountain West, Pac-10, SEC East, SEC West, Sun Belt, and WAC. Maybe I'll be able to get them all done in the next two weeks.
In the meantime, there will be fewer Randomization posts than normal as I continue to work on the previews.
