SB Nation BlogPoll Top 25

August 23, 2010

I decided to join the crew of bloggers that take part in the BlogPoll. The BlogPoll was started years ago by the folks over at, a Michigan Wolverines blog, as a means to poll bloggers all across the country on whom they view is the Top 25 football squads each week.

This is my second year participating in the BlogPoll, now hosted over at SB Nation, and I’m happy to be N.C. State’s voice among the pollsters. As always, review my selections and let me know where you think I’m wrong…I am by no means the “definitive” voice of N.C. State fans when it comes to this stuff.

Here’s my first ballot of the year. I didn’t vary too much from the group on those teams outside the ACC, though I did downgrade Florida a couple of spots as they break in a new quarterback. I still have major doubts about Carolina’s offense (and what impact the investigation will have on their season), just as I have major doubts about Florida State’s defense under a new coordinator and the team as a whole with a new head coach. And Georgia Tech loses enough talent on defense to raise concerns, but I still think Paul Johnson will find a way to win 10 games.
