DBD 1.09.09 Cal is #26 in the AP, #25 in Coaches

As racsan points out, we get some recognition from the coaches, but just not enough from the AP.

You might like Sagarin more; it places Cal 16th and has 5 Pac-10 teams in its top 25.

Well, the CGB blogpoll might have to extend some bias for the Golden Bears in comparison to the coaches and the mainstream media. Carp will certainly be outraged considering where he placed them.

Does Cal's ranking look good to you in either poll? Will it have any bearing on our regular season ranking next year?

In general, which poll do you prefer, AP, Coaches or Sagarin? Any other wrinkles stick out of the polls (Utah got SIXTEEN 1st place VOTES?) that you take umbrage with?

The opinions expressed in a FanPost are, in every way, reflective of the opinions of every California Golden Blogs Marshawnthusiast. Moreover, they are reflective of every employee of SBNation, including Tyler "Blez" Bleszinski.
