Here you go, straight from the lips of Larry Scott, commissioner of the Pac-12, regarding the USA Today coaches poll:
“I think it’s an unfair position to put the coaches in, to supposedly vote objectively when they’ve got a very natural conflict of interest, No. 1, and, No. 2, I think most coaches are focused on their own games — let alone breaking down tape afterwards and all that,” Scott said. “So to expect that coaches could have a good, balanced, well-researched perspective on who the best teams are in any given week is a fallacy.”
Well how about that? Now that we know we are getting a playoff, suddenly all the BCS bandwagoners are coming out of the woodwork with what they really think. Thank goodness we only have this “fallacy” for two more seasons!
