2011 BCS Rankings
September 6, 2011 by staff
2011 BCS Rankings, Tuesday is a day of digestion of college football experts, summarizing the results of the first week of the season for the weekly rankings, while trying to keep the cooked hamburgers devoured Labor Day.
The first season college football poll will be released on Tuesday, despite some discomfort and the mixed results of the new survey will most likely not be very different from the old survey. No. 14 TCU probably will not leave the Top 25 after its loss to Baylor. It may take more than a loss of turnover-plagued South Florida to force chronically overvalued Notre Dame de la classification. Missouri and defending BCS champion Auburn could still win votes after more than expected victories in the opening week.
Preseason polls, based on nothing more than speculation before a single moment has been exchanged between the center and quarterback, provide the basis for Week 1 polls. This week’s poll will be the starting point for next week, and so on to Oklahoma and that makes it out of the SEC West clash in the BCS National Championship game in January. (Anyone want to argue that not be the case?)
Of all the flaws that make college football, the sport most inaccurate and unequal classifications preseason and early season, would be the easiest to correct. The authorities have been trying for over a century to eliminate illegal recruitment. Good luck convincing the executives of container to give up there millions of dollars in revenue profit, in return for a second phase of truth. However, placing an embargo on the polls at least until week 4 of the season would be relatively easy, and the result could do wonders for the system.
While fans and coaches lament the preseason polls, the reality is that these surveys exist because of them. People are clamoring for lists, if David Letterman Top 10 or VH1 last excuse to put Paul Scheer on television. Ah, yes, and the coaches? The next time you rant about preseason polls at a news conference, ask one of the relations with the media to shock you with a cattle prod and remind you to vote in the ranking of the preseason conference in summer.
The argument of the surveys is that they generate interest, but early in the season, the concern of this type need not be generated. The fans are so amplified by the beginning of the season, I do not care if Stanford is the demolition of San Jose State, 57-3, why care if the Cardinal is in seventh place in the sixth or the eighth? Surveys generate interest towards the end of the season when we all wonder what team the strength of Boise State by a point in the title game. (Anyone want to argue that not be the case?)
By waiting until week 4 to perform the first survey of Top 25, voters will have a body of work, albeit limited, toanlyze. Michigan would have matches against Notre Dame, Eastern Michigan and San Diego State (solid Mountain West Conference Program) to determine the Wolverines’ 34-10 victory over Western Michigan on Saturday really meant.’d Know if Oregon State should be relegated to the FCS level after the defeat of the beavers’ shameful Sacramento State, or whether it was a matter of strong performances last week against No. 11 Wisconsin, UCLA and Arizona State. They would have a better idea of?? How to approach the quality teams of non-automatic qualifying conference as Boise State.
There are always choices. Anyone with a blog can build a Top 25 or Top 75 at any time if he or she wants. Surveys should be eliminated are those that affect things like the Harris and coaches polls (which take into account in BCS rankings), and the Associated Press poll, which does not directly affect the classification of BCS, but often serves as the basis for voters in other surveys. Skippy Let’s worry in his basement because they are the best teams in college football on Sept. 6.
Quick, who is ranked No. 6 in AP poll at the moment? If you do not know which is the State of Florida, do not worry. It is important this early in the season. You need not worry at this time. And if you do not mind, voters in the survey are not necessary either.
