    Wow. I thought this was a joke. Then I went to the above link. It's real.
    Saban actually put his team 5th.

    He's losing it. Or whomever did this for Saban is drunk w/ the Bama Kool-Aid.

    I remember watching a special on the coaches poll years ago. The poll found less than 30% of the coaches fill out the poll themselves or even care about it. SOS was one of them while at USC that was interviewed about it and he said a grad assistant was giving the duty to fill it out. He didn't care or have the time to watch games and know where to rank any other team. He figured the grad could do it better then he could.

    "Spurrier didn't double-check the ballot his football operations assistant filled out. SEC officials agreed to make Tebow a unanimous first-teamer after Spurrier recast his vote at the last minute."

    I think almost all, if not all ACC coaches who vote had Virginny in the top 25. One had them at something like #16. Am sure that keeping at least one other ACC team ranked was important to that conference in spite of their 4 loses and recent 45 point loss.

    Wonder if they vote them in the top 25 next month when they're 9-5.

    I can only assume he thought he should have gotten the UF job instead of McElwain in 2014.

    You mean you don't think head coaches have hours every week to honestly evaluate every team they believe should be top 25 and rank them?

    Coaches shouldn't be able to include their own team in their top 25.

    Well, in his mind, he won the game over Auburn, and the refs stole it.

    I am pretty sure he was always sure his person gave Duke a 25th place vote every week in the coaches poll.

    It wasn't every week. It was just the pre-season poll.
