Honestly, just shows these persons with votes didn’t actually watch the bowl games from the ‘lower’ conferences.  Stupid that SJSU is ranked well ahead of receiving votes Ball State in the USA Today Poll.  Because of the lack of OOC games, there is no viable way to actually conclude that SJSU should be ranked ahead of Ball State.  
 

Congrats on the ranking but it is inaccurate in my opinion.

Lack of OOC games also means less power 5 teams ranked. They count on having a good record vs them to pad their records. Granted a large part is because they are actually the better team but playing almost all the games vs little 5 teams at home makes a huge difference also.

No. It shows that voters realize not to weight one game so heavily when a team is missing a massive amount of their key players. Good on them

Ball State looked healthy in the bowl game. And they played well.

But when they went down the list of Spartan coaches and players missing before that game, I had a bad feeling.

Every team had issues missing multiple players and coaches through various parts of the season.  As I stated in my post and because there is no way to evaluate MWC vs. MAC teams this year other than the Ball State game, there is absolutely no logic other than a gut feeling and a wish that results weren’t what they were to rank SJSU ahead.  Sorry to dispel the truth.  Hopefully we will see a strong MWC next year.

You're really gonna try and fling that at a Boise fan after the season they just had?

I don’t care whether it’s a Boise fan, a San Jose state fan, an Akron zips fan or a Northwest Missouri state tigers fan.  It’s the truth.

8 G5 teams in top 25

Cincinnati at 8th, BYU at 11, Coastal Carolina at 14. Much better than the G5 does traditionally for the top 15.  

The MAC and the SB were the only G5 to have 2 teams in the top 25. The MAC is especially questionable.

Congrats to SAN. Without you we would have no one in the rankings.

Absolute hose job.  @BSUTOP25 and I are still happy though - first time since 2008 we are ranked!

That bowl game was meaningless. This conference should get ready to get wrecked every year for the foreseeable future. They’ll rename this mother+++++er the Spartan west before were through.

#1, To pretend that this is is similar to any other year is ignorant. #2, they have always taken injuries into account. When the playoff committee came out with thier initial ratings this year and BYU was way lower than where most thought they would be, they specifically mentioned that thier only good win was against a Boise team that was missing a lot of players. When Cincinnati had the #1 ranked basketball team in the country, the national POTY Kenyon Martin injured himself in thier conference tournament, they went from the #1 team to not even being a #1 seed, because of the fact that he wasn't going to play in the tournament. 

So, no, it's not "the truth". They have ALWAYS taken that into account... for good reason
