2011 BlogPoll Top 25 Ballot – Week 5

As many of you know, I am one of the voters in the BlogPoll Top 25. Each week, bloggers across the country representing the various FBS schools get together and put together their own top 25’s. Here at SOX & Dawgs, we are representing the UConn Huskies. The votes are then tabulated on Mondays.

Each week we are asked to do an initial ballot. This allows you the reader to let us know in the comments whether you agree with my choices or not. The initial ballots will normally be done on Sunday.

After I check the comments for the initial ballot, I then resubmit my final ballot for the week. If there are comments, I’ll take them into consideration before submitting the final ballot by 8 a.m. on Monday.

You can check out the ballot I submitted earlier today by clicking on the read more button below if you’re on the homepage.

I made the change at the top with LSU jumping from No. 3 to No. 1. I felt as though they were more impressive in their games than Oklahoma and Alabama. Some may disagree with me there but that’s my opinion.

No other big changes to the poll.

With North Carolina falling out of my poll, Michigan State jumps back in. They hadn’t gotten any respect from me in earlier polls so I felt as though it was best to get them in there and show them that respect they deserve.
