The Mumme Poll is Open for Registration

We posted this on the sidebar last week, but someone asked about it again this week, so we're putting this on the front page.

Basically, the Mumme Poll is the brainchild of the fantastic Georgia blog Get The Picture and the Volunteer/Crimson Tide hybrid blog 3rd Saturday in Blogtober and the poll, unlike traditional polls, picks up the voting in week six, so by the time you go to cast your first ballot, you have a better idea of where teams stand relative to one another.

The poll is also unique in that you choose your top five teams (in no particular order) and then submit a second batch of what you believe to be the seven next-best teams (again, in no particular order). The goal is that this "approval voting" method will yield better results than if you were to pick the teams in a 1-n order.

The link below goes to the open registration form. We encourage as many of you as possible to participate -- after all, the poll is pretty heavy with SEC flare right now so some northern sensibility is needed to balance that out.
