AP Poll Olympics: Weeks 4-6

Life has gotten a bit hectic at the moment and unfortunately, bashing AP voters and their poor top 25 rankings has had to take a back seat.  For weeks 4 and 5 I’m just going to link to the people with the bad polls and rank them and let you take a look for yourself.  for week 6 I’ll throw in a little analysis, but the AP Poll Olympics might have to be on hold for the next month or so.

Glenn will just not give it up on Florida State.  Jameis Winston is great, but putting the Noles at #2 is a stretch, still.  I’m not sure why Fresno State is ranked #17, the only semi-decent team they have beaten this year is Rutgers in OT.  Not sure how that makes them deserved of a higher spot than a team like Washington, who barely lost to Stanford, but I guess Glenn is just looking to keep his medal spot.

Silver Medal: Jon Wilner, San Jose Mercury News.

UCLA #6 and Washington #10?  Are you kidding me?  Texas A&M has only lost to the #1 ranked team in the country, yet they find themselves ranked below LSU who just lost to the #4 team in the country…logic at its finest.

Gold Medal: Josh Kendall, The State, Columbia, South Carolina.

Screen Shot 2013-10-07 at 7.35.33 PMIt’s always the same damn people.  I mean honestly, how do these people still have a vote?  I’m a little conflicted here because Oregon and Baylor have some nasty high-powered offenses, and the point totals they have been putting up each week are insane.  That being said, neither team has beaten an opponent that is worthy of being ranked in the top 25, so it’s a little bit of stretch to put Oregon at #1 over Alabama, but even more of a stretch to put Baylor at #5.  I respect Kendall for putting Louisville outside the top 10, but putting Washington #12 is a bit much for this squad.
