football voting is completely busted. Both polls are jokes. There are voters where you look at their voting and just wonder what they see
If we lose can just blame it on the refs.....or Delaney.....or Roushar.
Coach Carr? Is that you?
I think Michigan needs to be ranked #1 in the coaches poll as well. Otherwise it would just be in poor taste.
CBB polls are more of a joke, ie. they are simply worthless
After the top line (who typically is teams ranked 1-4), it's all subjective based on the committee.. Butler/Gonzaga have been ranked inside the top 10 at the end of the Reg Season and been given 6 seeds
I didn't say the AP Poll was unbiased or even better. But it doesn't have coaches whose programs and jobs are at stake voting in it. The AP also has twice the voters IIRC so it's harder for one or two voters to impact the results. But both polls clearly have their flaws.

No. It's one of these giant douchebags.
True, but part of that is you have 335 or so teams playing wildly different schedules. No one can realistically keep track of them all.
My mistake, I think my computer screen was too crowned. I didn't quite understand. I deserved better
Because the AP refused to go along with the BCS rule that said any final poll must show the winner of the BCSCG as #1. Technically, a poll cannot do that. A poll is a poll, i.e. a vote. So the BCS dropped the AP and created the Harris to use as a replacement.
Yep.. And even the RPI has serious flaws and that's been looked at as more of a barometer for seeding than the actual polls, but even that has serious issues
It's ok. That can happen sometimes when you put your pride first.
comes before the fall big sister, before the fall.
If this happens, we can probably say goodbye to our Oregon and Bama series.
Big Ten athletic directors will meet several times over the next few months to hammer out some key decisions for the 2014 season and beyond. The most
Trust me. You don't have to remind me. I watched a grown man utter those words on live television. He looked very serious.
bad idea. Half the big ten teams are about as good as MAC teams anyways Purdue, Indiana, Minnesota, Illinois and it eliminates any chance of a big nonconference game being played.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
I hate 9 conference games and I think 10 is ridiculous.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Do you think it will have any effect on the EMU, WMU, CMU series for MSU?

4-1 since that. It's not over. It's never over. I find a lot of things amusing. this was definately one of them. .800% winning percentage since. It's not over, it will never be over.
Watch Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio give a press conference on November 5, 2007 after losing to UM.
1-0 right now and we have the better team in 2013 too.
RPI is more a barometer of SOS IMO. You can play a top team and lose and still cause your RPI to go up. Or win against a crappy team and watch it go down. It's not intended as a ranking of teams from best to worst. The committee uses it as a tool when comparing bubble teams that look very similar.
Michigan has played 4 ranked teams and Kansas has only played 3 and some people still think they've had a harder schedule than us.
In all honesty, no; if you go to 10 conf. games, your program is dumb for scheduling additional tough non-conf. opponents.
So all B1G teams that play ND should drop ND? I still like 1 tough OOC game even with 10 conference games.
Sorry. All I heard was "Pride "
