The AP Poll is a Joke

Posted by houstoncollector on November 22, 2009

So, another week is done, and University of Houston beat 2-win Memphis by the score of 55 to 14.  In the process, Case Keenum threw for over 400 yards and 5 TDs, without any interceptions.  Houston’s reward?  To drop in the AP rankings from 24 to 25.

Stanford lost for the 4th time, and dropped from 14th out of the polls entirely.  Wisconsin loses for the 3rd time and is also out of the polls and LSU lost for the 3rd time and is 17th.  Above Houston in the polls are the following 3-loss teams:  Virginia Tech, Clemson, Oregon State, LSU, Miami, Mississippi, California, North Carolina and USC.

Houston admittedly lost to 2 unranked teams.  Virginia Tech lost to 2 top 25 teams and one unranked team.  Clemson also lost to two ranked teams and one unranked. Oregon State is the same way, as is LSU.  Miami lost to 1 ranked team, and two unranked teams, and so has Mississippi.

But wait, it gets worse.  California and North Carolina have both lost to three unranked teams.  USC is getting a similar shafting that Houston is, having only lost to two ranked teams and one unranked, and are ranked #24 themselves.   There’s also the fact that Houston beat #11 Oklahoma State, who has the same record as #25 Houston.  The AP poll is a complete joke, and has been most of the season.  Here’s the best part.  Houston went up 2 slots in both the Coaches and Harris poll, from 22nd to 20th.

AP Poll = Fail.
