We're proud to take part once again.
Here is the preseason ballot, which is due Monday. I'll be in Green Bay starting Thursday, but will update the ballot based on arguments made in this space. Please participate in the discussion.
A few quick thoughts:
- It's a preseason ballot, so not much time was put into dividing up the last ten or so teams. It's very fluid and open to discussion.
- Florida is the consensus No. 1, and they're in that spot for a reason. It's going to take a lot to convince most voters they don't belong.
- Texas is the pick right now to go unbeaten and meet Florida. That's a tough call, however, as Texas plays in the Big 12 South, and they're not facing a cakewalk schedule by any means.
- BYU is the top-rated non-BCS team, at No. 10. This looks like a very strong BYU squad, one that can threaten the BCS if they are able to beat Oklahoma Sept. 5.
