CBS Blog Poll - preseason

I posted my initial ballot earlier this week, listened to your comments and have made changes. 

  • Georgia Tech was a massive omission and they have been added.  
  • Kansas was removed
  • I did look more closely at Oregon, but they are still on the outside looking in. They were very good last year but not SO good that they will be ranked when they lost so many starters.
  • Kansas and Oregon are the teams most likely to jump into the poll after some teams lose in week 1.
  • I am sticking to my guns with Oklahoma over Texas for now.  I can see the argument for UT above OK, but this is a preseason poll that has a bit more prediction to it since we haven't seen the 2009 versions of the teams yet.  Same for Penn State over Ohio State.  I'm not usually a sucker for skill position players and value returning offensive lines, but in these instances I guess I'm a QB/RB rube.

My final submitted ballot.
