SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

Mississippi State placed #20, which is pretty much in line with the AP and Coaches polls. And we are still higher than Auburn and Florida.

This is also the time when you will see lots of homer voting (Auburn gets a 1st place vote, really?) and random submissions just to throw everyone off (although I hear the Akron Zips have a real shot at 2 wins this year). EDIT: Apparently I should read something when I link to it. Tomahawk Nation cast the lone vote for Auburn at #1.

For instance, who has ever heard of the Dixie State Rebels. Apparently they are in Utah, and are not subject to the same scrutiny as the SEC's Black Rebel Bears.

Expect our Blog Poll ballots to be posted every Monday and also expect to provide commentary on our selections before we submit it on Wednesday. The final poll will be released each Wednesday afternoon.
