Off to Sin City for a few days, one brief pause before the upcoming sprint that is college football.
I'll leave you with several things to do.
If you're new to HP, read and re-read and read again the Heismandments and then check out his Preseason Top 10 Heisman candidate list to see the killer consistency.
We'll be publishing our Heisman top 10 very soon here at CFR.
Check out our "Countdown Kiss":
Well, his preseason poll is out and sadly, it looks remarkably similar to all the other preseason polls out there. Not good. One would presume that Louisville, Boise State, and a few other outsiders might get a deserving look at being ranked high. Guess not. The BlogPoll is a great idea, but it's starting off pretty poorly in my eyes. Many many many points go to Brian though for thinking of it, organizing it, and putting the thing together. That's a lot of work.
Hopefully the castigation of those who actually tried to make a dent with his poll ceases, otherwise it fails part of its original mission to be different from all those clonelike poll voters out there who control the polls that do count in college football.

The entire CFB blogosphere is bristling and lined up against us right now for having the audacity to choose Boise State over UGA this year, and for not falling in line in regards to SEC worship and respect for vanillaball offenses. Talent ain't everything, sorry.
We're also a bit peeved with a Des Moines Register columnist who went after CFB bloggers collectively in a recent article. What, exactly did CFR say about Steve Alford? Right...
The archives here are always fun. Check out entries like political football and see just how red college football really is. The blue crowd will be happy to know the championship the last two seasons has been awarded to the team from a cool blue state.
