College Football Polls Week 5 - Gophers Unranked Despite Completing Only One Pass

Clearly the voters are penalizing the Gophers for having the temerity to win while completing a pass.

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

I learned something important today. The voters in the AP and Coach's polls despise the forward pass. What other reasoning supports the failure of either poll to recognize the Gophers? I had no idea that a single completed pass would result in this kind of snub, but here we are.

Onto some actual thoughts about the polls:

- Everyone agrees that Michigan State is the 9th best.

- Florida State got the "Jameis will be back next week unless he keeps being a moron" pass to remain #1. The computers are not as kind.

- Am I the only one who thinks UCLA is going to flame out?

- Duke huh? SID's like Duke.
