It must be hard for National media guys to get their ballots in with their heads sandwiched between their butt cheeks.We have all seen how shoddy national media coverage of anything is.... in the NFL I am convinced that only the Pats and Colts exist (all other teams are just patsies put into the league so they don't have to play each other every week). I am equally convinced that in the minds of the national media moguls, the only baseball teams that matter are the Yankees and Red Sox. Think about it, what have you heard more about today; ARod opting out and Torre being fired, or the Indians pitching staff?It is the same way in college football. These guys only watch a few teams; the SEC, USC, and top five teams. That is it. Everything else is just reading a box score. So each week they vote on teams based on some stats and scores (that do not always reflect what is happening) and then fill in the blanks with a collection of familiar names and "darkhorses du jour" (teams like USF, Cal etc.). What is very sad is that this mentality is actually what determines the final outcome nationally. THat is why I say, the only championships that truly matter are conference championships because those are the only one's that teams actually earn. The others are awarded.
