So once you get outside of the top divisions you have a lot of teams that have differing records. Some only have one or two losses while others are hovering around .500.
When people vote in the coaches poll what should be of the most value when you do not have head to head results to compare?
Do I value "quality" losses (is there such a thing) over some wins?
What about a team that has a quality record (.750 or above) but a BAD loss or two?
I'll be honest with you, having 40 teams in a division that do not play a lot of common opponents is difficult to assess.
Also what about a team that has been playing without a top rotational player (maybe a starter), how much do I take that into account when ranking them? Do I rank them based on their results (kind of like a computer), or on what they maybe capable of?
I am not impressed with the MaxPreps rankings this year but ranking teams is not an easy thing.
