This is why subjective polls suck and why a comprehensive (ie – NOT RPI) computer poll is the best way to insulate from human stupidity.
How does UCLA lose ONE GAME – on the road at a Top 25 school – and drop to 4th in this week’s poll? It’s ridiculous.
This isn’t football. It should matter a lot less “WHEN” a team lost. The Bruins have won SIX games against teams ranked in the Top 50 (if you use Sagarin Ratings for your barometer) while playing one of the toughest overall schedules in the country. How do they fall behind teams that also have lost one game while playing weaker schedules and defeating less good teams?
