Without realizing it, of course... last blog entry I complained about the issues of the polling system and what I would do to correct it (within reason of course).
That being said, I just saw Doug Lesmerises top 25, and while I don't agree with him completely, I gotta congratulate him. He proved me right, a lot of the reports I'm now reading are blasting the Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter for not going with the group think.
The key line he said in a quick interview on the Gameday show: "I don't use this neutral field matchup routine, because it didn't happen". WELL SAID DOUG!! We should be seeing a rating based on the BEST teams in the nation based on their performance.
Hopefully, Doug, you've set a trend, because it sounded like all but IDIOT Craig James agreed with your theory (James was sticking to the "history says" and "neutral field" issue.).. Even Kiper agreed with him, which shocked the you know what out of me.
I'd probably disagree with Doug on some of his picks, but I have to commend him for standing up for what he believes and what he sees.
