    Bullshit, knee-jerk reaction to Applachian State beating Michigan.

    And you remain the only one to vote for them because everyone else had the foresight to offer an alternative...

    Perfect plus-1 game: 1A vs. I-AA for the right to play the Mt. Union-Carson-Newman winner.

    Why? If they're one of the best 25 teams, what does it matter what their scholarship or attendance limits are? They aren't playing for a bowl berth or a national title, but they are playing college football and if they're competing with BCS teams on the field, they should at least be considered in the mix.

    OK, I'll elaborate:Who is Terry Taylor, what paper is this person with and what poll is she talking about?

    Terry Taylor is the SE for the national AP, I believe. So that would be the AP writers' poll.

    What does this prove?

    I-AA teams are not competing on the same level. They can't take part in the BCS, and they can't play in a bowl game.

    Because the poll's already a joke so adding more wacky neighbors to further confuse an already-convoluted storyline is bad business. This, BTW, is an example of the AP becoming the news as opposed to reporting it.
