One-man wolfpack pre-season football poll 

By Jason Lieser

The ballot is in. After surveying exactly one person (myself), this is how I see the pre-season rankings statewide.

If you don’t get the “one-man wolfpack” reference, that’s ok.

I don’t know if there will be a statewide Associated Press poll this season, which is fine because it’s typically irrelevant and under-informed anyway.

Speaking of irrelevant, I have listed my rankings for the upcoming season below. Feel free to fire off some hate mail.
