I Don't Think AP Voters Even Like Football

sometimes i wonder if the pollsters actually watch college football. seriously, how is USC ranked higher thank an Oregon team that torched them just a week ago? i mean i know the Ducks choked hard vs. Stanford...but it wasn't like USC was impressive vs. a lowly Arizona State team. media bias is a nice thing if you can get it. also the media shows that it is not unlike a tween and is always in love with the NEW THING by ranking a Stanford team who hasn't beaten anyone of note other than the sleeping Oregon team yesterday. Auburn, West Virginia, and Texas Tech are all more deserving of that spot.

Auburn does sneak back into the top 25 on the coaches side. so that's nice. win next week vs. the Dawgs and likely your top 25 to stay...unless of course Bama crushes us by 31 again. and also we should all take this time to thank Navy for removing any chance that Notre Dame sneaks into a BCS Bowl with their upset win yesterday.

and on a related Notre Dame rant: how does one consider themselves an elite program when they've lost to Navy twice in 3 years? i'm sorry...that's not elite. Notre Dame would probably be a pretty kick ass MAC team or maybe a top 4 Big East team. but the Charlie Weis regime hasn't made them any better than the previous ones. i just don't see anyway that Brian Kelly isn't coaching this team next season...big buy out or not.

and now the poll:


1. Alabama
2. Florida
3. Texas
4. Cincinnati
5. TCU
6. Georgia Tech
7. Boise State
8. Pitt
9. LSU
10. Houston
11. Utah
12. Miami
13. Oregon
14. USC
15. Ohio State
16. Iowa
17. Arizona
18. South Florida
19. BYU
20. Oklahoma State
21. Wisconsin
22. Penn State
23. Auburn
24. West Virginia
25. Virginia Tech
