Can anybody that wishes to take part this year send me a PM to let me know, and also include their preseason poll if they wish to provide one.

Basically each week we all pick our own top 25 and send it to Stattoo has a spread sheet that basically counts up the votes which gives us the top 25 as voted for by us.

I'm in again, as per last season, but won't submit a pre-season poll.

Thanks for running this, it was good fun last year.

Just thought I'd bump this up to see if anyone else wants to add their votes to the four I've got so far.

For newcomers to the NFLUK Poll, as Akie already said, you can submit your own opinion to the Top 25 teams in college football by noon Tuesday after every week of the regular season. These polls then get compiled (by me for most weeks) and then we compare our views with the (more biased) Coaches and AP polls.

Basically means you can give Boise State the respect they deserve!

You might think so, I couldn't possibly comment.

But in reality, although I think any team that is as consistently solid on defense and well-coached throughout as the Broncos should easily be Top 15, I need to see more out of Joe Southwick before I can put them as high as my heart would place them.

EDIT: And one of the polls I've received doesn't rank BSU at all!!

I've not done this before but have begun compiling my list.

Suprprised to see Baylor miss out on a few published pre season polls. I think they might make mine. If its too off beat tho, feel free to ignore

I've not finished compiling mine yet (I like to rank each team within it's division, then conference, first) but I think Baylor may end up in my Top 25 too. I fancy them for a share of the Big XII.
