People losing minds, mass idiocy ensues: Boise get 7 first place votes in poll
Monday night I authored a post entitled "Boise belongs in the elite" where I gave up my previous resistance to the idea of Boise belonging in the top ten and BCS, and said that they definitely belong in the equation despite the truly weak conference and schedule they play. But this is where that stops. In the latest AP poll, Boise got seven votes as the best team in the country. Seven actual journalists believe that Boise is the best football team in the country. That they can beat Bama, or Florida, or any team in the country. Seven. I'm hoping that I don't have to justify my contention that this is truly ludicrous, but I'll bet someone reading this might say "why not?" Then I'll weep.
