Here's the nutshell:
1) You shouldn't pay any attention to how we vote from week to week, because we'll elevate whoever we want based on rules never enunciated and for whatever reason we decide this year is important.
2) There are eleven of us voters so corrupt (biased or personally benefiting) as to place a team ranked 7th last week #1 his week after requiring a pick six in the last few minutes to eke out a win over an underdog.
3) There are two of us voters so corrupt (biased or personally benefiting) as to place a team ranked 8th last week at #1 this week.
4) We have completely forgotten about Kansas.
This system is irretrievably broken. I can't wait to see the USA Today grid to see all of the conflicts of interest in all their glory. And if you want to rely on the Harris Poll, go through my archives back in fall of 2005 to see how corrupt and conflicted those voters are.
And congratulations, Les Miles. You've just sealed your fate in Baton Rouge next year. Whatever the point spread, it does not matter. Georgia will absolutely annihilate LSU next year. Put the money in the effing bank,
