Pollin': SB Nation BlogPoll and SEC Power Poll Week 1 Results, Plus Numbers and Letters

Big Al is watching you. Alabama holds #1 in a damn vice grip after last week.

So typically this is the time where I share with everyone Red Cup Rebellion's final Blogpoll for the week, but since no changes were offered to the draft ballot - likely because, as we discussed, polls early in the season are stupid and difficult due to a lack of significant information - this is where I'll share the final network-wide poll, as well as link to the final SEC Power Poll and other weekend recaps of note.

So here it is, the results of the first week of the BlogPoll:

SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

I know you're shocked, but Ole Miss is nowhere to be found there. Also not found is Red Cup Rebellion in the poll ballots break down, because we weren't wacky enough with our balloting. We're working on it, y'all.

In other news, Alabama was unanimously selected as the number one team in the SEC by the SEC's football bloggers. ROW TIE and all that. Coming in at 13th are our Ole Miss Rebels, leading me again to say "WE'RE NOT LAST ANYMORE!"

Regarding Ole Miss, the most noteworthy comments the SEC blogosphere had to offer involved the Grove burning down and Oxford being a nice place. Suffice it to say that, while we may be a bit excited to have seen our offense move like a real offense against an FCS team this past Saturday, nobody else is impressed.

Finally, do yourselves a favor and make the SB Nation Alphabetical, by Spencer Hall, and Numerical, by Bill Connelly, a regular fixture in your college football readin'. They're definitely worth your time.
