why is the poll limited to D1? i understand that the biggest evil that people are trying to correct is seemingly undeserved recruiting cash to a team with a sub-.500 record (and its conference mates), but why not have a rule applicable across the divisions? why should the GLV's of the world benefit from the 10-0 non-con team that can't hit 4-13 in conference?
to me, its not at all about the conference, but about the actual, real human coach, who is coaching said team. if you go 4-12 in a brutal conference, thats really not that bad, you can even play a decent non conference and go 8-2 and be looking great for the NT before playing that in conference schedule and falling out. i sympathize with those coaches - they have a huge gap to catch up to the top teams - and don't want to see them missing the PIT too, when they barely miss the NT in the first place.
