Have every conference represented and have them watch every game that could possibly have an effect on the rankings and then debate who deserves which spot. If you did that you could have a legit ranking system for the BCS to use.
even if you did that, you'd probably have Vandy ranked about where they are. because they're Vandy
. NOBODY really believes they can keep this up. they haven't had a winning season, or even a .500 season, since 1982. they haven't won a bowl game since 1955.
this year they've beaten approximately one "good" team (Auburn) who ain't that good (and is TERRIBLE offensively), their two biggest wins were at home, their other 3 wins were against two cupcakes and an Ole Miss team that, despite beating Florida, one should remember that's their only SEC win in the last 20 months.
they're 12th in the SEC in total offense. 10th in total defense. 7th in scoring offense and scoring defense. they've thrown for 100 yards in only 1 of 5 games. they're disciplined, and fundamentally sound in all 3 phases, and they're winning the turnover battle in a big way, but that basically amounts to smoke and mirrors. they haven't faced a good offensive team yet (and certainly won't this week either
), or played a truly tough road game. and as well as they played against a bad Auburn team, they still only won thanks to a missed extra point.
don't get me wrong, they're a solid football team. and 3-0 in the SEC, 5-0 overall, deserves a good ranking. but top 10? nope. ahead of Florida or OSU? arguable, but i still say nope. i think they're right about where they belong.
