Losses matter, but in a ranking system like this, it's important to WATCH the teams. Which is part of the reason I AM glad there's a panel now required to do just that.

Just an observation.

K-State, they lost by two points to the #15 team in the country and by one score to the #2 team...if you don't think they're good, I have no idea what else to tell you.

Texas's blow-out loss to TCU aside has now defeated the #10 team in the country, lost by 3 points to #15 and lost by 1 point to #23. They did get blown out by Notre Dame as well as TCU, which is point enough that they're still rebuilding. But the fact is, they're by no stretch a bad team either, and if you watched the games against OKState and Cal, they lost both of those games on special teams plays right at the end of the game.

Who has K-State beat? I don't care who they've lost to. 2 losses. No way they should be ranked.
Texas sucks. Through and through. They played above their heads in a big rivalry game, that's fairly common. They suck.
The coaches poll has been proven time after time to be ridiculous and very bias. The coaches don't watch all of the teams, heck most of the time it's some low level assistant casting the vote. It's all about pumping up your conference.

Doesn't matter what poll it is. The usual suspects always get credit. Even when a dark horse team appears, shadows of doubt will always stop them from being taken seriously.

Again, ridiculous compared to what?

And the AP poll utilizes sportscasters and journalists that may or may not watch every game, while also having their own personal biases and schools/conferences that they want to push. That's the thing about humans.

There is no reason to trust either of the polls and take them as gospel. They both have huge, inherent flaws. The BCS standings exist to bring disparate polls together and still fail because polls are always kind of wrong.

Cubs/Mets?

If that's what you're talking about, it's a best of 7 series.

Jack Black vs. the Monsters? That's a one game playoff.
