Gary Pinkel as well.  Think he's trying to win brownie points with his new conference colleagues?


Also, Troy Calhoun put them fifth.  BEHIND ARKANSAS.  I don't see how this poll isn't a giant conflict of interest.

It is a huge conflict of interest, nobody in charge (ESPiN) wants to say it though.

Fong isn’t necessarily a person. Fong is more of an ideal, it’s a belief, and it’s a way to live. Something you can hang your hat on and say “yea I know fong…and he knows me” Fong is… to some degree in all of us.

That's why Tressel abstained from voting in the final coaches' poll of 2006. He said "I shouldn't have a say in who we play".

This is terrible.

It also was a horrible cop-out for Tressel to do that.

How is it a cop-out?  It's the gd truth.

I don't think Art Briles of Baylor likes Wisconsin.

How does Bielma justify ranking scUM #9 and Michigan St #15???

Given everything we know about Saban I'm shocked he even included Oklahoma State in his top 25.

Gundy should automatically get a vote since Saban did.  Plus at one time he was 40.

Georgia's votes were all over the place.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.
