TCU Ranked 6th In Pre Season AP Poll And Craig James Still Does Not Know How To Vote

New, comments

The poll that does not influence the BCS because the AP wants to report the news and not make the news just released their preseason poll this morning.  The somewhat big surprise is that Boise jumped Texas and Florida and are sitting at third.  Plus the fact that Boise State, Texas, and Oklahoma received a first place vote along side Ohio State and the runaway number one Alabama.  Utah is not in the poll but they are just on the outside looking in at 28th while BYU is at 34th. 

Before we get to the poll it is time to introduce the clueless man who somehow gets a vote in the AP poll who is Craig James and for some reason he was one of a few voters to give Texas Tech a spot.  He had Miami unranked and Texas A&M at 22nd.

Here is his vote
