The BlogPoll Is Here

The preseason BlogPoll was officially released today, with the Buckeyes checking in at #1. Last year's preseason BlogPoll had USC as a near-unanimous #1; there's a lot more disagreement this time around. I'm just glad I'm not the only one who voted the Trojans #1 in 2006.

There aren't too many big discrepancies between the BlogPoll and the Coaches' Poll, though Oklahoma (5th coaches, 16th BlogPoll) and Iowa (17th, 12th) are a couple of exceptions. The bloggers like Auburn a little more than the coaches, while the coaches are more bullish on Notre Dame than the bloggers.

The BlogPoll voter list and individual ballots are available here.
