What does he know? Block U's Blogpoll's first draft preseason ballot

This is all new for me, which means I'm probably going to mess up every now and then. So please, bear with me on this one.

But each week, Block U will release its preliminary top-25 poll for MGoBlog's BlogPoll. Then, because the interwebs rock, I will ask for your feedback on my rankings and together we just may create the coolest, most awesomeness and amazing top-25 poll known to man.

Now comes the tricky part. Figuring out how the hell you come up with rankings when a game hasn't even been played yet.

Do you go on last year's final top-25? Maybe, but we all know Hawaii won't be anything special this year.

Do you go on how much talent returns? Possibly, but I hear Idaho has a good number of players coming back and I doubt they're good enough to crack the top-100, let alone the top-25.

Do you close your eyes, aim a dart at the map and throw, choosing the school closest to where it hit? Probably not, since I hear that's how the media comes up with their poll.

That leaves favoritism and just random selections based on what you think you know. Yeah, that sounds good enough for me.

So with that said, here is that first draft of my top-25. Agree? Disagree? You need to let me know and we'll come up with Utah's version of a great top-25 poll.
