So BlogPoll is awesome, and I like that it has accountability, rules, and people who seem to watch/analyze/investigate a lot of games.
I was wondering if anyone else had a poll idea that they really would love to see and why they think it would work.
Mine has always been to give it to the Sports Information Directors/Departments of the schools. They're generally the ones filling out the ballots for the coaches poll anyway, so why not just label it what it is?
Another notion which I would need to tinker with would be the Steele metric. The idea is that you find a bunch of people, people who depend on information analysis of college football, to put together their ballots based on both what it says on paper and what they saw. Maybe it wouldn't come out until Wednesday, but the idea would be that they would be more likely to have seen some things beyond the highlights.
Adam Jacobi of Black Heart, Gold Pants also had an interesting idea for overhauling the coaches poll which I encourage you to check out if you get a chance.
