The votes are in…According to you the fans Stephon Robertson should have been a CAA Football Player of the Week! I tend to think we have a few more Dukes fans that frequent this site as opposed to the New Hampshire fans. Congrats to Stephon on the honor…although all he will receive is the CAA Football Blog notoriety! Thanks to the 106 voters who clicked on your pick’s name! Keep coming back each Sunday for your chance to vote on a CAA Football Player of the Week.
We now move on to this weekend’s poll. We are through Week 6 of the 2010 season, which means we’re halfway to Selection Sunday. The Coaches predicted Villanova to be on top…but how do you think the teams look after six weeks?
Rank our 10 teams first to worst! The poll is below and at the top of the right margin on the blog. A vote of “1” is the best and “10” is last. Results show up as averages so don’t be surprised when a team has a 2.33 next to it. Vote as often as you wish before the closing time of 10 a.m. (ET) Saturday. We’ll post the results in Sunday’s leftovers.
