  1. I think it’s comical to make any changes to the RAC when we saw last season that (in the west) they ignored the rankings altogether. I would be more excited if I thought the NCAA would hold to all of the regional rankings and take the best teams.

    Interesting that a win in August/September means the same as a win later in the year. I’m fine with it but coaches typically use these first games to try out lineups and can certainly drop a game or two early. Again, it really doesn’t matter what criteria is used as long as the final word rests with the NCAA behind closed doors.
