Coaches Poll - Logic Be Damned

I'm just perusing the new Coaches poll standings, and a couple of things jump out at me right away. First is that PSU isn't even in the 'others receiving votes' list, and second is that Michigan State is still ranked ahead of Iowa.

Okay, so I can almost understand it - they're Michigan, so they must be good, right? So three people give them a 25th place vote. ...or somebody puts them in 23rd. Neither here nor there, because the game finished late and most coaches were probably either watching Oregon or still working. At the end of the day, the only Coaches poll that really matters is the one that comes out the second weekend in December, anyway. What I find absolutely astounding, though, is that a substantial portion of the voting body in the Coaches poll can't be bothered to notice that the score of the MSU-Iowa game is indicative of total domination, and thus they put MSU ahead of Iowa. Seriously? This is how College Football crowns a national champion?

I know - the fact that coaches are kinda busy on Saturdays and can't be expected to pay attention to every aspect of what goes on has been thoroughly beaten to death. Still, even the cashier at the place where I had breakfast was aware that both Michigan Big Ten schools took a whoopin' yesterday.

Maybe we should make a Cashiers and Waiters Poll part of the BSC formula...
