Poll by: bsd987 - Official Pollster

Pollster's general comment about their poll:
My poll ignores a team's won-loss record. I rank the 25 teams I feel are the 25 best. Obviously, I will look more favorably at a 10-2 team playing the same schedule of a 2-10 team, but I take into account every intangible of a team. I have ranked 3-5 teams in the past, just as I'm sure I will in the future if I feel the school deserves a spot in my poll.
