College Basketball Poll Seeks Voters
If you're a longtime reader around these parts, you might remember that, for two winters running, about five or six dozen Bog readers and local media members have collaborated on the Atlantic 11, a weekly ranking of the Top 11 division I men's basketball programs in the DMV. There are 27 eligible schools; one is called Longwood. Longwood has never been ranked.
Anyhow, as usual, there was some slight attrition. With a new basketball season on the horizon--next week, believe it or not--I'm mildly interested in beefing up our rolls. Voting seems to be popular this year.
The requirements are a weekly ballot, every Sunday night or Monday morning. The penalty for skipping a week of voting is mild displeasure from the boss. Some particularly clever voters also submit wry comments about the various teams, usually having to do with Gary Williams in some way. The best comments are chosen for
worldwide limited regional fame, online and in The Washington Post. See a sample poll here; see last year's final rankings here. The Terps finished behind UMBC and American. Somehow I had forgotten that.
Point being, if you follow local college hoops, could be moderately objective and are interested in voting, write me here. Early voting and absentee ballots are not accepted; poll taxes are occasionally collected.
