East Region Fan Poll
« on: July 05, 2007, 09:44:54 pm »
Another idea from the South Region...

They have 5 of the most prominent posters of that region vote for the top ten teams in the region each week of the season.  I'm figuring that we can do the same over here in the East Region, starting with a preseason ranking.  Please PM me if you'd like to be part of the "ranking" committee.

I'm not going to limit it to 5, however I only want serious people that will be part of it each week.  If you miss a week or your voting indicates that you are not taking it seriously, I will not include your ballot and you will not be allowed to do it again.  It's only fair. 

So, let me know.  I hope to have a Pre-season poll by the beginning of August!!

You should try to limit it to one poster per school, like the SID poll.

Greetings pg04,

Matt Barnhart put the poll together.

He ran the poll and compiled the balloting.  He selected 2 posters from the Virginia area, 2 from Texas and one poster who had recent exposure in Pennsylvania and Texas, living in both areas.

It worked very well.  I believe that all of the South Region fans benefited in discussing the rankings in ways that were probably being discussed on the national level, while preserving the anonymity of Pat's process.  I don't think five is a magic number.  If you are happy with the quality of the voter, then we out-of-region fans will read it with great interest.

Good luck.

I think limiting to one per school is a good idea, as previous people have mentioned.

Also, I still have no poster representing in the NJAC or MAC (or the NEFC)... anyone with interest from those conferences please let me know.

I would be willing to do it.  After all I can pretty much be unbiased, I have no football team to root for.

OK, so so Far this is what the panel looks like:

Budcrew                    Utica
Superman/Upstate     Fisher
KnightStalker                 NJAC/Unaffiliated
Lewdogg                          RPI
PG04                             Brockport

Superman and upstate will be providing one ranking between the two of them due to me making the one person per school rule after I had agreed on both of them.

This is still a pretty small list of people, I thought there would be more interest.  Anyone else....We do need one MAC rep at least, and also would like a person From the NEFC and NESCAC.  Plus more from E8 and LL would be wanted too.

Over on the D3Hoops.com poster poll last season, Mr Ypsi, the person in charge of the data, would list the rankings anonymously.  That published record of the rankings of the teams (e.g, SJF getting these rankings:  2,2,2,3,3,3,7) tends to bring the outliers back to the consensus.  The person putting SJF 7th either knows something that no one else does, or has a grudge, or is just trying to manipulate poll position.

Pep might be interested if it doesn't take too much time...

The Harmon Football Forecast, at one time operated by Bob Harmon out of Circleville, NY and was about the only forecast out there that cared about the small colleges like Alfred, was a regular feature in the ALFRED SUN. Since the founder's death and its subsequent sale to CBS.Sportsline.com, it has abandoned the small colleges. Thus, Pep produces pigskin prognostications for D3football.com's Top 25 in addition to Upstate NY games, to complement Harmon's major college predictions.

Thus, Pep attempts to keep up on what the D3 schools are doing and, despite his loyal support of the Saxons, Pep tries to maintain objectivity in posting and rankings. However, Pep would not object to AUKaz00 serving in his place, provided he practices his clarinet!
On Saxon Warriors! On to Victory!
