I've been doing the BlogPoll for a few years now, so this isn't new to anyone, and doesn't require a lot of explanation.
With preseason ballots due soon, here is my first stab at one. If you're indeed new to this, you can comment or tweet or whatever to get your thoughts in. Argue for or against teams, argue for teams that aren't rated, just don't name-call. That's all I ask.
As they say in NASCAR, have at it.
