AP Poll has an agenda tied to the media

The AP moves teams up higher or lower based upon upcoming TV games, for instance LSU & BAMA for the upcoming LSU-BAMA game, a 1 vs 2 will get much higher ratings than a 2 vs 4, and as most know these media conglomerates are all tied to one another, there is a definite agenda going on behind the scenes. Anyone who thinks that these are their actual votes without any influence from their employers or who they are representing behind the scenes is naive & I have some ocean front property in Arizona that I can give you a great deal on.

In the end it really won't matter if Clemson is #4 going into CFP it is the same as being #1. Being #3 is the same as #2, and I am seeing some people are wasting too much energy on this, there is 0.0% chance an undefeated Clemson will be left out of the top 4. Both times Clemson won CFP they were NOT the #1 seed, as long as they make it they have to win 2 games regardless where they are ranked for 1-4

If pigs are so smart, why do 66% of them use weak and inferior materials during construction?

and Ohio St. got more credit for beating NW by 49 than we got for beating Louisville by 35.

You’re actually saying they’re are working in unison to have #1 play #2.

That’s asinine. How about some proof of that?

ever watch ESPN or SEC Network or CBS Sports? They are all in on LSU-BAMA because they own the TV rights for the games & and many of the media members who votes have ties to those networks. ever watch Fox Sports or Fox? they are all in on Ohio State & were all-in on Wisconsin before their loss & now it's Penn State, because Fox has a contract with the Big Ten. when I am watching the Clemson games the announcers aren't really bashing Clemson. because the better the Tigers do, the better the network they are working for who have a contract with the ACC does. it's the same as when I watch Cable News & the MSM, their programming is based off of what their Network wants & not actually their own journalistic intuition, case in point Phil Donahue & Jesse Ventura were fired from MSNBC because they were against our wars in the Middle East despite having the #1 rated shows on the network at the time of their firings, that is why other than Tucker Carlson, you never get anyone on MSM speaking out against the illegal regime change wars & operations that out government engineers.

... are not all on a conf call discussing how to vote? Right? I mean, you do understand that it's a bunch of individuals, most WITHOUT ties to the SEC or ESPN. Right?

What you're implying is that every voter, regardless of what state they're in... regardless of what school they went to... regardless of what network the may be tied to....regardless of anything that may set them apart from the herd.... you're saying that the majority of them are biased towards the SEC. Just because they get a vote? I truly hope you know how absurd that sounds.

you do realize a lot of those media outlets have ties, even if indirectly to ESPN/ABC, Fox & CBS? & they don't need a conference call when you know what is expected out of you

you say "a lot" but you're wrong

Clearly you don't know the who the voters are. If everyone of the big network employees who have votes were to give Alabama their first place vote, and every other voter did not, Bama would not be #1.

Furthermore, divide all the supposedly biased voters' votes up among all the other SEC schools near the top, and it would have an even LESSER effect on the polls.

Anyone who doesn't get that is just stupid.

That and the Coaches Poll is nearly the same with most teams being within 1-2 spots of where they are in the AP.

So why exactly would writers from all over the country, many of which whom either don't work for a tv network at all, or who at least work for different companies care about tv matchups?

For instance, let's say that game ends up being aired by CBS, why would anyone at ESPN care about CBS getting higher ratings, or the other way around? Why would a writer covering the Big 12 or PAC 12 care about television ratings for that game? Also, why exactly would more people watch the game if it's 1 vs. 2 as opposed to 2 vs 3, or 1 vs. 4, or whatever? Is there some large percentage of people out there who would watch the game if it's 1 vs. 2, but decide it's not worth their time if one team is ranked at 3 instead?


Exactly... people who make the OP's argument are dumb***

It's takes no talent & doesn't make someone a good person or even close to it, calling other people names & putting them down & where I come from, those people are not thought very highly of, so keep on hating it fits y'all so well
