Clearly, the voters can’t watch every game.

The latest top 25 rankings are out and it seems that both the coaches poll and the Associated press pollsters are not paying all that close attention to who they rank and where.

Yes, there are a lot of games to monitor and coaches and voters have other team-specific responsibilities but how does one keep ranking Cincinnati above Boise State and in the case of the coaches poll ahead of Memphis.

The Bearcats have won three of their last four by just single digits and that includes wins over South Florida and East Carolina, both of which are not going to a bowl game.

Whereas Boise State just obliterated Utah State and New Mexico in its past two games which the Bearcats have not done. Memphis has been more impress over the past few weeks than Cincinnati as well.

Good things these polls are not overly important as neither decide a national champion, but when the College Football Playoff rankings come out and if the Bearcats are ahead of Memphis, Boise State, or even both, then there are problems.

The debate with where Cincinnati will be resolved next week when they take on Memphis in the regular-season finale.
