7 Days Ladies and Gentlemen.
7 Days from today the Maroon and White will don the shoulder pads and helmets in the 2011 season opener.
7 Days from today we invade Memphis, no not to go to a Three Six Mafia concert or visit Graceland (okay, we might visit Graceland), but to travel to the Liberty Bowl to watch our beloved Bulldogs start out the year against the University of Memphis Tigers.
Each week on Monday, when you're still possibly hungover from a Saturday night at Mugshots or you're angry that you got smashed in fantasy football yesterday, OR you're just sad because it's Monday, SBNation bloggers from around the country will be submitting their ballots for the BlogPoll, SBNation's Top 25 College Football poll as voted on by its writers. Each week I will post my ballot here for discussion, explanation, reader review and most likely ridicule.

There ya have it: now go forth and debate, feud, discuss, comment.
