Because I don't believe preseason polls should be done, I've decided to rank my preseason Blogpoll on something just as valid as any other preseason ranking system: strength of schedule. You might say "But Bud, to rank based on SOS you have to have some feel for how good the teams are." That is true, but I do not have to be held to my preconceived notions about teams as I won't be ranking this way the entire system. I could have just as easily ranked all teams wearing Green or Red as a primary color. This is our third-annual protest vote.
Once the season rolls around, we will rank the teams only on on-field play, a/k/a resume voting. Teams have not played any games so far, so we cannot rank in that fashion just yet.
