Seeking MEAC, Patriot League and Big East Followers

Ok, this area hoops poll is actually going to happen. Did you see The Post ran my poll on page E2 earlier in the week? And that was without me really taking it seriously, and with VMI ranked high in my poll just because they shoot a lot. Once we start taking this seriously, it'll probably be on A1. Anyhow, we have about 35 volunteers to vote, which is great. Thank you all, and I'll be in touch soon.

I'm going to devote most of tomorrow to getting this done. I'll send out a few questions tonight or tomorrow, and then we'll get a final list of voters. I've briefly looked at most of the volunteers, and it seems to me that the A-10, ACC and CAA are way overrepresented. Especially Virginia fans. Not sure why that is. But I need to make sure I have some people who follow the MEAC, Patriot League and Big East, especially if we decide to include West Virginia in our "area."

And please, save your discussions about how my definition of "area" proves that "The compost is a liberal rag sheet." If it'll make you happy, I'll shelve the word "area." We'll call it "The Narrowly Defined Mid-Atlantic Hoops Poll," or something. Plus, you can't compost a blog. Blogs are not biodegradable. Sorry.

So anyhow, before we get our final list of voters set in stone, if you can offer expertise on the MEAC, Patriot League or Big East, or even the Big South (VMI), America East (UMBC), Northeast (Mount St. Mary's), MAAC (Loyola) or Longwood (Longwood), please let me know. Or, if you haven't volunteered yet and want to throw your name out there.
