Whence the Blogpoll?

Submitted by Ali G Bomaye on October 27th, 2013 at 9:16 AM

Has anyone seen the Blogpoll yet this season?  I know it's bounced around somewhat from site to site, but I haven't seen any updates yet this season.  If it died, that's a shame, because I think it was the most accurate and thought-provoking poll out there.  If it's still kicking, can someone point me in the right direction?

As a voter I never received any instructions from the SB Nation operators of the poll, and my favorites link that used to go there now goes to MMA rankings (blech.)  I think they let it die, which is a damn shame.  Brian let them take it over because he was feeling overworked in trying to run it; now that he's got underlings I wonder if he'd feel inclined to bring it back.

I always thought that Brian's commentary was a million times better than the SB Nation guys, as well.

I did some searching and the last entry on SBNation that I could find was from December 2012, so it looks like it is not a feature anymore (at least for this season anyway) - I agree, however, that this is a shame if it is gone.

I was thinking this same thing recently.

And if SB Nstion is no longer interested in doing it, can MGoBlog start doing it again? It was very popular and I'm sure Brian got tons of page views from it.

I miss the blog poll articles, the awards were good for finding out who thought their team was under ranked, what resume rankers thought, etc. But as for the rankings themselves, they were just another useless ranking.

SBNation's Alabama site has been running a weekly feature called "Who Needs a Blog Poll" where they rank the top 25 teams and invite comments in the same format as the blog poll. The first entry says that the poll has been nixed for this year but declares that they will soldier on anyway.

Here's the link to the most recent article: http://www.rollbamaroll.com/2013/10/20/4859002/who-needs-a-blog-poll-week-8-wtf-just-happened#comments

So yes it looks like the blog poll is dead for now but some are carrying on anyway.
