You missed his point.
He's not arguing about how the corrupt human polls function during the season. He's arguing against you, when you said using game rank was superior to waiting until the end of the season where we would actually be able see which teams were good.
I did get his point. He/you missed what I was saying. I was saying that IMO jadennis should have done the research on game rank since that is the system that is/was used to rank the teams and it paints an accurate and consistent picture. My example was just an explanation of the current system, how it is used now, and how it effects/doesn't effect the season end ranking.
OK Yoda..please tell me what I was saying because you can obviously discern my thoughts and intentions.
Discern your thoughts he can, wise he must be.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
i don't care if someone beat the preseason top 12, all in a row, if those 12 all lost every other game.
basically, i want to see what teams actually did, how good they actually were, not what we thought they were at some point in time.
take bama/ucla back in 00 again. sure, ucla got a little bump early in the season, but as the season went on, that bump became less and less because bama ended up being terrible. had bama stayed top 10 throughout ,ucla would have continued to get credit for a great win. as it stands, that win is no better than a cup cake win.
game time isn't a useless stat, it can help show how a team does in those special games when they at least expect their opp to be elite (or bad, or anywhere in between, depending on what rank/record you use, etc.)
but it's not the best when comparing retrospective records for opp that are elite.
