Fresh off of getting his playoff proposal smacked down by the BCS folks, MWC commissioner Craig Thompson turns his attention to the lowest hanging fruit on the college football postseason tree – the Coaches’ Poll.
“I’ve never been a great fan of the opinion polls. That’s all they are,” Thompson said. “Just the Tim Tebow story from last week is the perfect example. Coaches aren’t filling those (ballots) out, and those that do, aren’t they kind of busy on Saturdays?”
“I’ve always been a proponent of the computer polls,” Thompson added. “They just look at statistics. At least it’s a little more performance based than a human being that’s saying, ‘Well gee, I saw nine of their games….’”
