Does it really surprise anyone that Cal received 4 #1 votes? No, I didn't think so. And I find it funny to see that Texas has seen the biggest drop from what the coaches poll and AP Poll put it as (#2). This clearly shows a Pro-Cal bias. But other than that I'm stunned at Notre Dame at #25. Sure it's not #23 as the coaches put them, but based on all the comments in the DBDs I thought ND would've dropped out. Guess not. Interesting to see that UCLA, Tennessee and Syracuse (!) got votes. WTF at Syracuse. I blame Missing Barry. Seeing as this is just the pre-season there's not much more to make of this.


The Biggest Homer Award goes to...

... CruzinBears, CaliforniaCMB, Missing Barry, and omnizzle, all of whom voted for Cal as #1!

This award was presented to the user(s) who loved Cal the most out of everyone who voted this week

A surprisingly low amount. I was thinking that it would be more users, but guess not.


The OMG Cal Sux Award goes to...

... ragnarok who voted for Cal as #18!

This award was presented to the user(s) who held a glass half-empty look at Cal

So now we know why ragnarok likes Longshore.


The Five Most Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Notre Dame
  2. Brigham Young
  3. Nebraska
  4. North Carolina
  5. Utah

Most people had the most trouble figuring out where these five teams belonged. This list is limited to teams that are in the top-25 only.

No surprises here.


The Five Least Confusing Teams Were...

  1. Florida
  2. Texas
  3. Oklahoma
  4. Southern California
  5. Florida State

Most people were generally on the same page when it came to these teams. This list is limited to teams that are in the top-25 only otherwise all the crappy teams would top this list.

I find seeing Texas on this list funny. Because this shows that everyone who voted on this poll voted Texas a lot further down than anyone else in the country. We really don't like Texas it seems. And even on CGB Tebow-fever exists.


The Five Most Divergent Voters Were...

  1. ragnarok
  2. CaliforniaCMB
  3. Missing Barry
  4. Nashville
  5. CruzinBears

This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed most from the overall Top 25.

I had expected to see Missing Barry at #1 here with his vote for Syracuse and putting Cal at #1 but it looks like ragnarok wins out with his inexplicable vote for Utah at #2, TCU at #7 and other such oddities.


The Five Least Divergent Voters Were...

  1. calbear1017
  2. jshufelt
  3. royrules22
  4. RollOnYouBears667
  5. Davis Bear

This avard was given to the five voters whose poll differed the least from the overall Top 25.

Most of the voters on this list pretty much voted exactly as the poll turned out to be. Even with Cal at #9.

 

So this is our very first poll results. Please give me suggestion on how to improve it! Next week, the poll will have teams that dropped out, and indicators on how far up or down a team moved week to week. Also, the voting for week 1 will begin Sunday night or Monday morning.
