You mean besides that fact that Tim Brewster (GO FIGHT TRY VOTE) gets a ballot and has a direct hand in the BCS process? While that right there should be reason enough, some of his fellow coaches obviously have no goddamned idea what they are doing.
USA Today was kind enough to reveal each of the voting coaches final ballots. For the most part, Iowa was rated 9th or 10th. Maybe 11th in a case here or there. And it's clear that several of the coaches have forgotten Iowa's 21-10 win over Penn State earlier this year, as JoePa's squad is rated ahead of the Hawks by a notch or two.
But could someone please tell me what in the name of Christ Jim Harbaugh is thinking when he not only rated Iowa 16th, but look who he put above them at Number 14. Go ahead, I'll wait. He put Arizona. You remember, that team that Iowa dominated earlier this year in handing them a 10-point loss. The only thing worse than Harbaugh's ballot is that of Washington State coach Paul Wulff.
He had Iowa 18th and the Wildcats 12th.
I knew there were a bunch of assholes coaching in the Pac-10 Conference. I didn't realize they had a massive inferiority complex when it came to their conference perception.
