THE RANKING POLL SYSTEM

Who votes in the poll?

  • Voters are designated by the admins

When does the poll come out?

  • There is a preseason poll followed by polls every week up until the week before the BCS Round.

How does the poll work?

  • Pollsters pick their top 25 every week. 25 points are given for a 1st place vote, 24 for 2nd, and so on until 1 point for a #25. Points are tallied and the top 25 vote-getters are listed in the poll (along with total first place votes).

What is the significance of the polls?

  • Poll results will be used at the end of the year to seed the At-Large Bowl round games (16 places total). Remember, 16 places are automatic due to conference championship games).
  • A final poll will take place after the Bowl Round and will determine the top 3 teams that go on to a 2 game BCS championship bracket (Fiesta Bowl and the XBCF Champions Bowl).

How do I know it is fair?

  • Pollsters are forbidden to identify themselves at any time during the season. If that situation occurs intentionally, immediate action will be taken by league staff, with possible removal of the owner. As in college football, polling is subjective. We urge pollsters to use strength of schedule, team balance, win/loss record, etc. as criteria for submitting rankings.
  • Remember, running the score up is NOT TOLERATED, so pollsters SHOULD NOT use margin of victory for submitting rankings every week. Members who do not follow the United Leagues sportsmanship guidelines will be removed IMMEDIATELY.

ANTI-CHEESE PLAY RULES

  • D-Linemen must be set on the line of scrimmage in a 3pt stance. The only movement allowed by the DE's is via 'line audibles'. You are not allowed to move your DE's manually. If you want to spread your D-Line and then take over a DT and slide him back to the middle/left/right whatever, that will be the only acceptable movement allowed. Basically, you can move your DT's as long as they stay in the 3pt stance.
