I'm not sure if I ever really heard the answer to this before but how will the polls play out starting next season with the playoff? The playoff committee will be issuing their own poll I believe. Will their's be a top 25? Or just a top 4? Will the committee have a preseason poll or will it come out halfway through the season like the BCS? Even though I am sure those other polls will stick around and there is no way to "force" them to stop, wouldn't their existence be an influence on the committee? If the AP has a team ranked 2nd would the committee really be able to rank them 7th if that seems the more fitting rank? This playoff committee will be so super scrutinized and analyzed that for it's own credibility it would almost always have to mirror the other polls as close as possible it seems. Thoughts?
