    Somebody please explain this to me.

    I was looking the AP Top 25:


    Others Receiving Votes:
    South Florida 220, Missouri 144, Alabama 116, Washington 95, TCU 66, Arizona State 28, Auburn 23, Appalachian State 19, Cincinnati 12, Florida State 2, Iowa 1, Purdue 1, Kansas 1

    Ok, not only is it hilarious that they are there and Mich and ND are not...but then I looked at the FCS Coaches Poll (I-AA) Ranking and they are #1:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/polls?poll=7&date=2007-09-09

    So, I guess a I-AA team can be ranked in the AP poll?
    It would makes sense since it does not say the I-A poll.
    I wonder how often this has ever happened.

    Also, it is sweet to see my hometown team the NDSU Bison at #4!
    Go Thundering Herd!!!

    wasn't this something that was just changed the wek after app state beat Michigan? I think it ment more then but now that the Wolverines lost to Oregon and quite possibly ND their votes would not mean as much IMO.

    They are not the first I-AA team to get votes ... I know that Southern Illinois got votes after winning the 1983 I-AA title (did a Google search a few weeks ago) ... and I think some other ones have before. I cannot really think of one getting all the way in the top 25, but I know that some have gotten votes before.

    They no longer call it I-A and I-AA,
    They now call it Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A), and Football Championship Subdivison (formerly I-AA).
    Dont ask me how this affects the ratings, I just know they messed with some shit this year.


    Chuch.

    Yes, the AP changed their rules after Appalachian State beat Michigan to that voters can vote for ANY Division 1 school in the top-25 poll.
    The Coach's poll (USA Today's) does not allow votes for Football Championship Division teams.

    BTW - the NCAA is a bunch of morons if they think the new division names don't suck monkey ass.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
