Send your top 25 to me at fredmorlan@gmail.com . B teams are definitely permitted and, as appropriate, encouraged. I reserve the right to reject weird or stupid ballots, your name will be released, etc.

Are these for current teams or is this a poll for next year's teams?

Current. We'll do a separate pre-season poll in August or September or something.

We currently at ten ballots. Why don't we have more? We should have more.

People who have cast ballots and are, in turn, awesome:

Evan Adams
Neiman Tan
Fred Morlan
Gazi Rashid
Bryce Durgin
Dave Bykowski
David from Whitman
Colin O'Donnell
Quint Carr
Evan Silberman

People who haven't cast ballots and, as a result, suck:

Everyone else

I would love to cast ballots, but i don't really agree that i "suck" because i've only seen two of the teams i'm going to vote for in live action. So... what exactly am i supposed to do? Remain "sucking" and not vote? Or vote without really any actual knowledge other than the scores i've seen here from HSNCT, PACE, etc.?

Sometimes seeing a team can just bias you one way or another. I figure the completely unbiased observer actually has the best chance of making an informed decision from the stats available.

So you think i should vote just based on the banter i hear here and the scores reported at nationals? That's substantial enough? If so, i'll give it my best shot.

How a team does on a nationals set against other national caliber teams is most certainly substantial evidence.

You can also check out head to head match-ups and other stuff about the assorted teams who did well at nationals on the Byko rankings, which I believe are linked off the homepage of this site.

So I screwed up and forgot MLK on my poll. I feel really badly for slighting a good team. If anyone's curious, they should be 15th on mine with everyone else getting bumped down.

Wish I could have submitted my poll but I was in Ireland. Overall the polls are fine. Besides 2 or 3. The top 10 for everyone were all pretty consistent.
