Football: BlogPoll bickering starts... now!
So. One of the things that I hope will differentiate the BlogPoll from the various other polls is the amount of interaction that will take place between voters. The ideal is sort of a giant hive mind of college football knowledge that collectively is very accurate--the key to this is taking everyone else's opinions and absorbing things you didn't know and changing your mind.
With this in mind, this is the first in a series of Q&A (&A&A&A&A) sessions that will hopefully get people thinking about things in ways they wouldn't have without input from the Tulane guy or the BGSU guy or the Mississippi State guy.
BlogPollers are encouraged to answer the following questions on their blog and leave a trackback here. If they have an area of expertise (like the Big Ten for this particular blog) they are encouraged to stay within it. Then they are furthermore encouraged to read everyone else's opinions and comment on them, so forth, so on, etc, until we are completely right about everything. mgoblog will wait several days and then summarize the general feel of the answers, much like a Slate fraywatch.
In the future I'd like this to move around--nobody likes a traffic hog. I figure we'll do another one in a couple weeks. If you'd like to come up the questions and play Grand Central email me.
Based on this compilation of the top 25 as Internet pundits and preseason rags see it, who looks flagrantly overrated? Why?
Who looks underrated?
What team in the high teens or lower could end up in the Rose Bowl?
