I won this just for being me. I'm the National Champion of Being a National Champion.
The thing about polls is that they're meaningless. And yet, you're about to read a post about a preseason poll. That's an Inception-level of crazy. (Or it isn't. I don't know. I didn't see Inception, so this post may or may not have anything to do with that movie. Apologies for this potential Inception-level of confusion.)
Keeley, Harrison, and I put together individual ballots and collected the results. Both Keeley and Harrison went with the defending national champion -- Virginia -- as their preseason poll-topper; I, because I am handsome and adorably prescient, went with Johns Hopkins as my preseason number one (which, as a Syracuse fan, makes me want to vomit in my mouth a little bit). I am pretty sure that my meaningless vote in this meaningless poll is the reason that the Blue Jays have drunkenly stumbled through their preseason scrimmages/bar crawl.
When you compare the below-aggregation to the coaches and media poll there isn't too much deviation, which shouldn't come as a surprise because everyone's paddling in the same unknown waters at this point.
So, what do you knuckleheads think? Does everything here look okay? (Maybe Delaware is a little low? Does anyone have a decent read on Princeton for this season? That's a whole bunch of Ivy League, no?) Leave 'em in the comments below.
