Good Bull BlogPoll - Week 13

New, 3 comments

This week we're taking some conferences to task. It's a BlogPoll, you animals!

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

I shouldn't have to give this disclaimer again, but for new readers, here we go: I think polls are silly. Preseason polls are the worst. There couldn't be a more arbitrary, subjective, biased way to view teams that play completely unique schedules and suffer losses at different times. What's to like about polls? They let us bicker like paste-eating dolts with no restitution. This week, I'm digging deeper into conferences based on MY poll which is iron-clad and perfect.

Yackety Sax:

- Leagues!

  • ACC. Nice week for the ACC in their rivalry games against SEC. Number of ranked teams: 2. Average ranking of said teams: 14.5.
  • Big 12. I'm going to get ripped for where I slot K-State. You can't get boatraced by Baylor and not take punishment. Number of ranked teams: 4. Average ranking of said teams: 17. The Big 12 is happy to tell anyone who listens that they are the deepest league in the country. I think a more apt description is they are the league with the most parity of mediocrity.
  • Big 10. Number of ranked teams: 4. Average ranking of said teams: 15.5. What the hell do we do with Ohio State? They're just kind of... there.
  • Big East. :( Number of ranked teams: 0. Average ranking of said teams: you can't divide by zero. #MATH. Friendly reminder: this league gets to send someone to the Orange Bowl.
  • Pac-12. Number of ranked teams: 4. Average ranking of said teams: 12.25. USC starts the season as No. 1. Notre Dame starts the season unranked. Completely reversed now. College football is the best.
  • SEC. Number of ranked teams: 6. Average ranking of said teams: 5. Mathologists - I know that average doesn't tell the whole story. I also know the bottom half of the SEC is very poor (coach firing bukkake). This league is still the very best, and it isn't close.
Shout out to the MAC. As for the rest, we're arguing even more absurd semantics from rankings 15-25.

As always, call me names and give me your rants in the comments. Most fun season ever.
