The science of football polls

I have an idea for West Virginia: they should lose a game.  Maybe then they will go up in the polls; repeatedly winning by large margins seemingly only results in them dropping in the AP poll.

    The Mounties need a tougher schedule, then they wouldn’t be disrespected as such. They’re over-ranked as is, but as the leader of the weakest BCS conference, they have to be highly ranked.

    Of course the BCS system is a joke and won’t be fair until there’s a 16 team playoff, but there you are.

    Well, that experiment backfired. They dropped to 13 after the loss to SoFlo.
