BlogPoll Top 25 Ballot: Help!

It's that time of year: My first BlogPoll Top 25 ballot is due on Monday. Would love your input in the comments. Let's say we use the traditional rankings as a starting point, at least for the purposes of arguing who is overrated, who is underrated and who isn't rated (but should be).

Keep in mind my criteria for the first week: How the season will end. After the first week, I mostly vote based on how teams have played so far this season, not their potential.

I will try to update the comments as frequently as I can, so we can have a real discussion going. And I will try to take the comments and build out my first draft by Friday, for discussion on Friday and all weekend, before submitting the final version of the ballot on Sunday night.

If you are going on how they are going to be at the end of the year. Then consider 3 teams from the PAC-10. USC = should not be included, Arizona - should be included, Washington - should be included.

I would probably have Arizona in the 18-22 range and Washington in the 20-25 range.

I don't have any feedback on your ballot, but I did want to point out that in your sidebar you have a section titled '2007 BLOGPOLL TOP 25 BALLOT' and all the links in there are 404s on MGoBlog.

There is a sweet new BlogPoll site:

Full disclosure: I work at SB Nation and helped build the new BlogPoll site.
