How much weight do BGP members give the AP Polls???


Just curious, Do BGP members even bother with the AP Polls???


Do they mean anything to anyone???


1. None


2. No


3. Not to us...


BGP members see more games across the state than the handful of people voting in the AP polls and many seem to have more knowledge of the game and the teams than the voters do. Too many voters go based solely on reputation. Some schools will get votes from an AP member on the opposite end of the state just because they really had some great teams back in the 70's.


A better question would be to ask the AP voters what influence BGP has on them...:D

I would like to see the voters listed to bring a little accountability to the process.

As they stand now, they lack credibility,IMO.


I agree with you, although some outlets do publish the voters each week.


Here is an example using this weeks 3A Associated Press Poll. I am only including the top ten, and then the members who voted this week. Immediately, you have to ask, who the heck voted for Somerset as #1 after they got pasted by Pulaski County? Homer votes ruin the credibility of the whole thing. Then you notice nobody from Pulaski Co area voted, but there were 15 first place votes but only 13 voters listed. ??



Class 3A
Rank-School W-L Pts
1. Belfry (7) 1-0 139
2. Lou. Central (6) 0-1 121
3. Russell (1) 1-0 113
4. Breathitt Co. 1-0 85
5. Paducah Tilghman 0-1 76
6. Mason Co. 1-0 75
7. Elizabethtown 1-0 61
8. Sheldon Clark 1-0 48
9. Russellville 1-0 47
10. Somerset (1) 0-1 36
