Pre Season Polls Are Like Socialism

Pre season polls are kind of like socialism in my mind; they may seem good in theory, but in reality they suck. I have always thought that a team should be ranked the same in the pre season as they were at the end of the previous season.

I know-I know; teams lose players, coaches, and what not, but why is it fair for one team to surpass another team in rankings without any games being won or loss? Maybe some of you can convince me otherwise. In my mind I have always likened it to heavy weight boxing champions. If you want to be the champ, you gotta be the champ! Kudos to the coaches for keeping Bama at the top. And hey, at least the Dawgs cracked the poll!

Here is a look at the Coaches' 2010 Pre Season Poll.


  1. they won't stay there long with there "pro" like training camp. Too soft.

  2. Libraries suck? Roads Suck? National defense sucks? National parks Suck?

  3. I really, really, really don't understand what sort of black magic Ohio State pulls every year to rocket to the top of the polls.

  4. Logic of a vote doesn't make sense. Are you voting on who is the best team? Or do you vote on how teams will be throughout their season. And if you vote on how a team will be throughout their season... then why should a team drop in a poll when they lose a game, that most think would/should lose?
    All in all, I like the polls, good discussion for the first few weeks until teams are really established.
    As for UGA,(like most years) if they can get by So Car, they could be in for a good year.
    Its like no matter how good a team is, if they lose ti SC, then its a year to be forgotten.

  5. "Libraries suck? Roads Suck? National defense sucks? National parks Suck?"

    In America, all of these things were made to be the best the world has to offer.....with a democratic republic, NOT socialism.

    It's all going to hell in a hand basket these days! Thanks in large part to our move towards socialism.
