2012 BlogPoll - Week 2: What? Miami Got Votes?!

Perryman is scaring people into voting for us! Go Perryman!

The results of the BlogPoll were released today, outlining where the hundreds of SB Nation voters thought the teams should be ranked. Overall, there aren't that many surprises, but here at The 7th Floor, we were surprised to see that our beloved Canes got more than a few votes! While we assume this is mostly because Duke Johnson wears the U on his helmet and people are becoming afraid of Denzel Perryman, these votes were still surprising.

Hit the jump to see the poll!

First, the results:

SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

As you can see, after the performances during week 1, there were a few expected changes at the top of the poll. Alabama is the clear number one after breaking Michigan, and the Trojans dropped a spot because while they dominated, it was Hawaii, and well...come on. LSU is at number 3, even though they did not necessarily excite, and Oregon is at 4 (by the way, this team is RIDICULOUS). Our friends the Seminoles found out the top 5 with a stellar win over Savannah State, or some deaf school or something. Maybe Murray? Whatever. They'll still be good against actual opponents, so they deserve the be ranked right where they are. As you can see, compared to our ballot, things were pretty different. Here's our ballot for a quick reminder:

Here at The 7th Floor, while we generally will vote based on chalk, we will also take into account the performance itself. For example, we voted Tennessee at 11, but they ended up at 24. They looked impressive against an NC State team that underperformed, but they may not actually be that good.

Now, on to the fun stuff. As you can see at the bottom of the BlogPoll there, Miami received votes. I was curious as to who voted for us, and where they placed us on their ballot. The results were...surprising. For example, the guys over at CougCenter, our resident Washington State blog, put us on their ballot at number 5 (!!!!!!!). The Oklahoma blog BlatantHomerism put the Canes at 7 on their ballot. Beyond that, Miami received 6 other votes between the 20th and 25th rank. Obviously, other people follow our method of voting based on performance over where we think the team will ultimately end up. Seeing Miami getting votes after beating Boston College is certainly fun, but if, IF, we go to Manhattan and beat Kansas State this weekend, it will be interesting to see where we end up.

What do you guys think about the BlogPoll results? Sound off below!
