The Coaches Poll Continues to Baffle

Monday, October 12, 2009

The Coaches Poll continues to prove why it should have absolutely no part in deciding who plays in the National Championship game.

1) Texas has yet to beat a single ranked team this year. Meanwhile, Alabama has beaten the team you deem 4th best in the Nation on a neutral field. Throw in the fact that they also crushed an Ole Miss team that three weeks ago you had ranked 4th in the nation. So why the hell is Texas still ranked ahead of Bama?

2) Someone explain to me why Oklahoma State is ranked 9 spots ahead of Houston. Just a refresher Houston beat Oklahoma State on the road. They also beat Texas Tech a 4-2 Big 12 team and they beat Miss. St. a middle of the pack SEC team. They did lose to UTEP, but a reminder they beat Oklahoma State, on the road.

3) There are 3 points separating Iowa and Penn St. Penn St. hasn't beaten a single good football team this year and lost to Iowa at home. Meanwhile, Iowa beat Penn St. and just beat Michigan at home. Yet, there are just 3 points of separation. Logical.

4) Give me a logical reason why Notre Dame or Missouri are ranked outside of the fact that they only have 1 loss.

And now onto the preliminary rankings for this week.
