Here’s who voted for Washington

The entertaining site, Pollspeak.com, suddenly becomes a lot more relevant for Husky fans with UW returning to the polls.
In case you missed the news, UW is No. 24 in the AP Poll this week, the first time the Huskies have been ranked since the poll of Sept. 28, 2003 when UW was No. 18 after a 3-1 start. The following Saturday, UW lost at UCLA 46-16 and fell out of the polls. The week after that, UW lost at home to Nevada, and the fall from grace had pretty much begun, though no one knew at the time how deep it would get.
But the poll ranking today indicates further UW’s return to relevance.
One of the neat features of the site is that it lists everyone who votes for each team and where.
So here is the page for Washington, and as you can see, the highest vote UW got was a 10th from John Adams of the Knoxville News-Sentinel, who can’t be accused of East Coast bias — he also has Cal at No. 6, USC at No. 11 and Oregon at No. 20.
Of some of the more notable, Kirk Herbstreit has UW No. 24 while Chris Fowler and Craig James did not rank the Huskies. Also apparently unimpressed was Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News, who also didn’t rank UW.
