USA South Coaches Poll:
2012 Media Day

The USA South football coaches gathered in Danville at Averett University  on Monday July 30th to discuss the upcoming season, but more importantly participate in the coaches pre season  poll. The poll which is voted on by all eight coaches, depicts how they see the conference standings for the upcoming season. Coaches cannot vote for their own institution.

This year as in many years past, Christopher Newport was the overwhelming favorite to win the conference crown. The Captains garnered 6 of the 7 available first place votes. (Only 7 are available as coaches are not allowed to vote for their own team)
Ferrum received the remaining 2 first place votes. The results of the voting are below:

1.Christopher Newport (6)48
2.Ferrum (2)43
3.N.C. Wesleyan29

Comparing this to my predictions, there are three picks that are the same. 1st, 2nd, and 8th places. The biggest difference is the Maryville pick...I have them third, and the coaches have them seventh. We shall see....It will be a fun season.

Go Panthers!
