Missing references for polls

09 January 2017 - 11:17 AM

I have the references for every AP poll prior to 2005, every AJC poll prior to 1984, and all AC and AJ polls back to day one with the following exceptions:

Atlanta Constitution:
1953 12/14/1953 <-- May be a projected poll
1956 12/17/1956 <-- May be a projected poll
1957 12/16/1957 <-- May be a projected poll
1959 12/1/1959 <-- May be a projected poll
1964 12/7/1964
1964 12/14/1964 <-- May be a projected poll
1968 12/16/1968 <-- May be a projected poll
1970 11/25/1970
1971 12/13/1971 <-- May be a projected poll
1974 8/27/1974
1974 12/16/1974 <-- May be a projected poll
Note: Ira Kirkpatrick did most of the early research for the Atlanta Constitution polls and mentions constructing "projected polls" for the seasons that the AC did not release a final poll after the playoffs. We specifically identify the 1956 and 1970 as being constructed, although I suspect most of the 1950s and perhaps the 1960s final polls to be projected polls.




Atlanta Journal:
1960 12/6/1960 <-- May be a projected poll
1964 10/13/1964
1964 11/17/1964
1970 12/15/1970 <-- May be a projected poll
1973 8/29/1973
1974 8/26/1974
1981 9/15/1981
1981 9/22/1981
Most of these exist, but my digital copies from the UGA library were corrupted.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
1982 8/25/1982
Possibly exists, but I could not find.


If anyone would like to research any of these, I'd be happy to either have the poll or to validate it does not exist.

Region standings discrepancies

09 January 2017 - 11:01 AM

Here are the two teams from 1992 to 2016 that we are missing games from according to what we show from the region standings:

1995 Riverside Military Academy
- Region standings show 4-6, but we only have at 3-5 in our games

1995 Georgia School for the Deaf
- Region standings show 3-4, but we only have at 2-3 in our games

Missing forfeit dates

09 January 2017 - 10:55 AM

Below are the 31 GHSA games from 1948 to 1990 that are forfeits that I have not been able to track down the actual date of the forfeit for. Also, if ou have the reason for the forfeit, I'd be helpful as well.
