Brian: The preseason blogpoll was released last Wednesday by Brian at MGoBlog. Not many surprises, other than the lone #20 vote for BC by the Florida State blog Tomahawk Nation. Upon closer inspection, the only reason BC comes in at #20 is because TN based its preseason blogpoll ballot based solely on schedule strength.
Florida is the near-unanimous No. 1 overall, receiving 99 of 101 first-place votes. The other two first place votes went to Utah and Georgia (the above-mentioned Tomahawk Nation weirdness).
Top 25 ACC teams include No. 9 Virginia Tech, No. 14 Georgia Tech, No. 19 Florida State, No. 21 North Carolina and No. 25 Miami (Fla.). Notre Dame also makes the poll at No. 23.
