Rece Davis said it best on GameDay Final:
And apparently he pegged them right on, because Southern Cal is still holding down the top spot after their impressive performance against Open Date.
Dennis Dodd, who I consider the worst pundit in college football, is a perfect example of the lunacy of the polls.
He then goes on to list USC as No. 1 in his "Power Poll" ahead of LSU and Oklahoma. Are you serious?!!??!?
Granted, it doesn't really matter if you're ranked first or second when the final poll comes out, as long as you're in the top two. But it does speak to the legitimacy of the rankings when things like this happen. What would LSU have to do to move up to No. 1? What if USC beats Nebraska 28-14 next week? Wouldn't LSU's 41-point victory over Virginia Tech be more impressive?
At least somebody gets it, of course, it's the best in the business:
