This is Tomahawk Nation's first BlogPoll this season. We waited a few weeks so that teams had a chance to build up a bit of a resume. Inside, find the criteria on which teams are ranked and the BlogPoll.
This is not a power poll. I don't attempt to rank teams based on how good I think they are. I only rank teams based on their resume. What have they done? Not how talented are their players or what other polls project them to do, but what have they done? The poll is designed to be dynamic. I try to start from scratch every week.
Note that this first poll is based on only 3 weeks worth of games. There might seem to be some strange selections, especially in the lower part of the poll. But at this point, there isn't much information to pull from. Many teams are still very much in the warm up portion of their schedule. Next week many teams will face better competition and there should be a better picture of the best 25 teams in the country.
