ARIZONA WESTERN COLLEGE MATADORS TOP BALLADEER’S BLOG’S NJCAA COLLEGE FOOTBALL POLL

 Welcome to Balladeer’s Blog’s FIRST EVER preseason college football poll! The NAIA, NCCAA, D2, D3 and CCCAA will also get preseason polls from yours truly in the coming weeks.

As much as I hate to see summer come to an end I’m with the rest of you in waiting impatiently for August 22nd, when the 2012 college football season kicks off in the divisions covered here at Balladeer’s Blog.

The Arizona Western College Matadors (logo at left) top this NJCAA poll. The Matadors may have fallen to the East Mississippi Lions in last year’s NJCAA Championship Game in the El Toro Bowl, but have enough talent to convince me they could be playing for the title once again.

1. Arizona Western College Matadors   ###   2. Iowa Western Reivers   ###   3. East Mississippi Lions (defending champs)   ###   4. Blinn College Buccaneers   ###   5. Butler (KS) Grizzlies   ###   6. Hutchinson Blue Dragons (won the last 3 Salt City Bowls)   ###   7. Continue reading

THE COOLEST HELMETS IN NJCAA COLLEGE FOOTBALL

ASA College Avengers

ASA College Avengers

To help us all hang on until the 2012 college football season kicks off Balladeer’s Blog has been examining some of the coolest helmets in the divisions of intercollegiate football covered here. This time around it’s the NJCAA’s turn.

The ASA College Avengers (logo at left) have the coolest helmet logo in the NJCAA, but it fades in a little too much against their purple helmets to be sufficiently visible in pictures.

A white helmet might make it show up better, but at any rate their decal will instead serve as this article’s main pic to open things up with everyone’s favorite purple-flamed Goth android skull logo.

Now with your appetites whetted, dive in and sample the coolest helmets in NJCAA college football:
