Putting myself in the shoes of the poll voters ...

... I spent a lot of time looking into the records of our recruits. If I were voting, I cannot imagine doing that for each recruit among the Power 5 conferences and the top non-Power 5 teams. I only invested the time for one team because I am a fan of that team.

I think pollsters just look at the TRN and UTR rankings and then vote. That still leaves the problem that they don't understand the relationship between quality and quantity, and this has been true for years. Dallas Oliver, who runs TRN, agreed with me on that point a few years back, but he is not going to coach the poll voters or pressure them. The poll results stand as they are.
