Gobbler Country's 2009 Preseason BlogPoll Ballot

Here's my initial entry for the BlogPoll after hearing arguments from readers. *confetti*

Rank Team
1 Florida
2 Texas
3 Southern Cal
4 Oklahoma
5 Alabama
7 California
8 Ohio State
9 Oregon
10 Virginia Tech
11 Georgia Tech
12 Mississippi
13 Oklahoma State
14 Penn State
15 Brigham Young
16 Georgia
17 Boise State
18 TCU
19 Utah
20 Nebraska
21 Iowa
22 Florida State
23 Oregon State
24 Clemson
25 Southern Miss



  • The Top 5 stays the same. I know this will be controversial. A few of you made valid arguments against USC and Alabama being in the Top 5, but I didn't get any feedback from anyone on which teams were more deserving to be that high.
  • Many of you had issues with Ohio State, so the Buckeyes have been moved from No. 6 to No. 8, allowing LSU and Cal to move up a spot.
  • Virginia Tech and Oregon trade spots from the initial ballot.
  • Georgia Tech has been moved ahead of Oklahoma State and Ole Miss to No. 11.
  • Everyone else remains the same.

Thanks to everyone for their input. I look forward to doing this every week through the season. With swearing.
