    I wonder if folks realize the AP Voters are definitely NOT majority based in the South.

    They're just Media Personnel with an agenda. They're not Football players, they're not experts.
    They're Media Sports Writers who's jobs depend on JUICY stories, Cinderella Tales and controversy.

    Yea, a real trust worthy group of people.

    If (ALL) their votes were combined, YES! it would be better than (JUST) the AP Ballot of 64 Sports Writers.

    Now we have 6 Computers(Unbiased Number Crunchers), Coaches Poll and Harris Interactive (COMBINED).
    Not JUST one or the other.

    The
    Harris Poll has been specifically designed to be a valid representative,
    of all 11 FBS Conferences and Independents.(Combined)

    The Methodology behind the Harris Panel;
    First, Division I-Bowl Subdivision college football conferences and independent institutions nominate prospective panelists. Then Harris randomly selects 115 members from the nominees to participate in the actual panel. From each week in September to the end of the regular college football season these115 panelists vote on the particular ranking of teams. These rankings are then published and are used to determine of the BCS ranking.

    (Comp.) + (Coaches) + (Harris Interactive) = Better than the AP


    So YES, that is much better than just the 64 AP Poll voters.

    I am very much in support of the BCS Ranking System, it is way more
    accurate than (JUST) the AP.

    However, I am NOT is support of how College Football Ends every year when it comes to Unbeaten Teams.
    Last year, we didn't have that problem. We may NOT have that problem this year either, still a couple weeks left to play and we haven't had that problem too often anyway but it is a potential problem and so the 4 team play-off is an attempt to fix it.

    The #1 recruit in the country by Rivals.com just picked AL as his football school. What I am more impressed with is that he is going to major in Civil Engineering, I wish young Mr. Hand all the success in the world in his choices .

    and right there you have just explained the polls...If you are a Bama fan you signed the #1 recruit, if you arent he is the # 6 recruit...so who is correct...actually neither, because both services are by journalists,SID's and other unnamed panelists from unnamed regions, just like all the other polls. You have Rivals, Scout, and now ESPN...they are all fueled by certain media outlet publications

    its just like the Heisman ballots are heavily weighted to an east coast bias, I mean how many sportswriters are located in Idaho that dont pull for Boise State compared to the number of sportswriters in Boston Mass. who dont even stay awake to watch the BSU games
