I've read thru the proposed procedure from several sources. It varies significantly depending on the source, and all I can conclude is that journalism majors must be the dumbest folks with a degree. Having seen what I believe is the same procedure on three different sites, I think i have discovered how the committee intends to pick and then rank the teams. I have no interest in understanding the gobbledygook that makes up the recusal rules. I guess what we need to hope for is to get off to a good start and have at least 3 voters list us on their first 25 best list. I am not suggesting we can be highly ranked, but if you don't get into the pool at the start it will be very difficult to get noticed later in the season. No vote totals will every be divulged, only relative rankings, so at the end of the day TEAMS #5, 6, AND 7 will never know how close they were to be in the final four.
Won't this make the AP and USA Today and ESPN top 25 obsolete?
Also heard that the selection committee will strive to "protect" the No.1 ranked team relative to where they play. If the last poll had FSU first, they play #4 in the Sugar Bowl and #2 vs #3 would go to the Rose. If Stanford or Oregon was No.1, they would play their semi-final at the Rose and 2 v 3 would play at the Sugar.
I see this whole deal as no improvement on the BCS. Just adds two money making games, and we'll still have the disgruntled bridesmaids.
What would we have to be in late October to get into the poll? 7-1? Would 6-2 make it? We could be 6-2 with losses being VPI and Miami. Would that do it?
