Sooner voter

Gazette staff August 29th, 2012

Hey, Sooner Nation: There’s a guy in Michigan you might want to put on your Christmas card mailing list this year. Kyle Meinke, who covers football for annarbor.com, was the only voter in the Associated Press Top 25 football preseason poll to give the first-place nod to the University of Oklahoma.

In an interview with ESPN.com’s SoonerNation blog, Meinke admitted that the revelation of his pick prompted a deluge of reaction, not all of it from happy campers.

“Judging from Twitter, I think I’ve made a bunch of new friends from Stillwater,” joked Meinke, a first-time voter in the AP poll. “But unless you’re an extreme outlier ... I don’t really understand criticism of preseason polls. They’re guesses. Educated ones, but still, it’s just guesswork based on things that matter in games.”

Too late, Meinke! We’re holding you to it.
