: : : : Team A is ranked higher than Team B in the Preseason Coaches Poll
: : : : Team A then beats Team B
: : : : Latest Coaches poll has Team B ranked higher than Team A
: : : Go to Max Preps and look on their "playoff prediction" calculator....that gives a better idea of who should be ranked where based on record, head to head matchups, and strength of schedule
: : MaxPreps is not as strong as the freeman ratings were. Coaches' polls are usually manipulated, especially in the lower divisions.
: The last polls were several weeks ago. Plenty of other games can impact the placement.
Which games should matter the most in a poll or ranking? I would think a head to head match up would take top priority but then again Ohio State went to the 4 team College Football playoff over a team they lost to (Penn St) and then were shut out in the Fiesta Bowl. Maybe those other games are not AS important as the head to head match up.
