SB Nation Blogpoll draft ballot, week 1.

ARLINGTON, TX - SEPTEMBER 01: T. J.

Here's my take on the top 25 following the first weekend of action. It looks similar but far from identical. My ballot and comments below the fold.

Thoughts:

  • I already had Alabama number one, so that was easy.
  • I'm not convinced that Michigan State is a top five team, but they were close to that level last year and won a tough opener.
  • Ditto Clemson.
  • I was perhaps a little harsh on Michigan, but my skepticism about the Wolverines was exacerbated by what happened Saturday night.
Again, it's early, and these early ballots are always an odd mess of results and reputation. Still, I welcome any comments, arguments, reminders about teams I totally overlooked, in the hours remaining before the poll goes final.
