I was wondering: how is this poll different (and more valid?) than other polls out there? Are people allowed to somehow bet on the teams according to the given “ratings”?
So they say that Oregon’s loss of Roper is “devestating” but still rank them at number 10. And they believe that on a neutral field, Texas Tech, Oregon (without Roper), BYU and possibly WVU would all beat LSU?
Yeah, yeah . . . . I buy that. I’d love lay 50 grand on the Red Raiders or Fightin Mormons to put a whoopin on those p*ssy Bengal Tigers. That’s gonna happen.
Over the past number of years this poll has proved significantly more acurate over the course of the entire season than either the AP or the USA Today poll. The guys who put this poll together actually watch every of every team that they rank rather than the other polls which are mostly based on guys seeing highlights on SportsCenter and looking at the final score.
This is a guess like every other poll. LSU at twelve isn’t even funny. “WOW!!!” for USC? USC only did what the last two SEC teams that faced the Buckeyes did. What is extraordinary about that? OSU is a three loss team in the SEC.
This poll, regardless of the number of games these guys TIVO, is still a long way from portraying the CFB landscape. As if the USA Today and AP polls were accurate?
