The preseason BlogPoll has landed, and it has Alabama in the top spot (unlike the Coaches or AP Polls). It also has the requisite eight SEC teams in it.
All four SEC teams not in the top 25 also got votes. Each of the four got a vote from Tomahawk Nation, which did a strength of schedule ballot in protest of the concept of preseason polls. Additionally, a BC blog put Ole Miss 24th and SBN's Vandy blog Anchor of Gold voted its own team 25th.
