BlogPoll Revamp 2010: Part I

Submitted by Brian on July 26th, 2010 at 2:50 PM

Why part one, you ask? Why is there a part two? Let's cut to what part two is:

IF YOU HAVE A PAC-10 BLOG, or something that vaguely resembles a Pac-10 blog, or a Creed-style Word document you think is a blog, or a cat in which you have shaved the letters "L" "O" and "L" into, please for the love of everything that is holy email me and vote in the poll. I ain't too proud to beg.

Now here's why.

VOTER EXITS

These are definite, with a few more possibly on the way depending on how outreach goes.

FOR NO LONGER EXISTING

No posts in six months, URL redirects to ads, or the guy has told people he up and quit.

POLL STATUS

The SEC and Big Ten are over-represented; the SEC lost one blog overall and the Big Ten added one. So that's fine; we're looking to balance the poll by filling out the less well-covered leagues. Problem is that that's not really happening. The Big 12 is static. the ACC is down two, the Big East is down one, and the Pac-10 is down four with another on the fence. With the addition of a couple MAC blogs that league is up to seven representatives… and that's what the Pac-10 is down to.

WANT IN?

Poll membership is still open until the season kicks off, though SEC and Big Ten bloggers are going to have a hard time finding a spot to wedge into. (Mississippi State is an exception since we lost our only MSU blog.) Anyone covering a school outside of those leagues not named Notre Dame, Syracuse, or Nebraska has at least a decent shot. Email me to apply.

in the fact that 'We'll Always Have Tempe' appears in the NO LONGER EXISTING list?

Apparently, 'always' is a relative term in the blogosphere.
