Can I represent WLA? Or do I have to start up a Duke blog to participate?
It's Blogpoll Revamp Time
Ok, kids: it's that time of year again. If you have a blog that…
- has existed for at least six months,
- posts substantial, original content about college football at least 2 or 3 times a week, and
- is willing to disclose the author's favorite team
…you're welcome to apply for entry to the BlogPoll for 2009. The BlogPoll is a CBS Sports-sponsored college football poll that follows the same format as the AP and Coaches' do, except with way more transparency.
More information on the selection criteria is available, if you want it, and there is also a treatise on desired voter philosophy. If all this seems like fun, email me with your blog URL and (if it's not bleeding obvious) team affiliation, at which point I'll put you on the list. If you've already done this there's no need to do it again; I've got you in the hopper.
The secret cabal of blogpoll assemblers should have decisions in the first week of August; the preseason poll will come out a couple weeks before the season.
I wonder if there are too many Michigan blogs already.....if not the WLA should get a nod. Also, what about When Carcajous Attack! and that guy who is always shaving Tempe?
Actually, you have to start the Duke blog on inauguration day...
Let me hop into my DeLorean then...
No, in all seriousness I could start a Duke blog if that's what it takes to get into the blogpoll. I might anyway for basketball/football.
And then, on the stroke of the witching hour on the eve of the poll's closing, they will mark their selection by sacrificing a young virgin, perhaps a Buckeye, to the gods.
Sorry, something about calling it a "cabal".
