Default A New Weekly CFB Poll: Super 16

Quote:
There will be a panel of 36 voters for the FWAA-NFF Grantland Rice Super 16 (its official name) drawn from the FWAA membership and the National Football Foundation. Twenty-six of the voters will be FWAA members distributed across the organization's eight regions, and 10 voters will come from the NFF. The panel of voters will be announced in the summer prior to conference media days, and their individual weekly votes will be made public.
The poll will be released on Sundays during the college football season.

Not sure what to make of any poll nowadays other than the first and last ranking of the year. With a selection committee determining who goes to the 4 team play-off, weekly polls are becoming less and less significant in CFB. I suppose their best attribute is media hype for televised regular season match-ups.

It really has no relevance at all. We don't even have a 16 team playoff. The selection committee doesn't have to go by any poll, they can do whatever they want.

It is merely a talking point during the course of the season, that's it.

One of the more ignorant rankings I've ever read. Again, the West coast, Notre Dame, and Ohio State over-rated, but their schedules often cause that. The comment that a 20 rating is generous to the Gamecocks seems to highlight the lack of overall depth of the article. Of course, it's impossible to guess who's really good until about the 5th game of the season.
