Sometimes I swear the Jimbo Fisher is just a re-incarnation of Papa Bowden. Aside from a lack of spoken “dadgumits,” he seems to offer a similar megalomania shrouded in antiquated folksiness. So of course he hates BCS computers and can argue their low quality with this kind of low quality logic (emphasis mine):
Fisher thinks the coaches’ poll is the most accurate way to evaluate teams, suggesting his fellow coaches provide the most knowledge about how teams have actually performed and, he believes, would vote without bias.
“I don’t think writers could do it better than coaches could do because it’s what we do, and we understand the true guts of the business,” Fisher said. “(Coaches) understand the importance of winning. You understand how you win. Coaches understand the grind. Any win is hard.”
Fisher revealed that his own ballot in the coaches’ poll, which he said he spends about two hours per week completing, includes Florida State at No. 4 behind only undefeated Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame.
This has to be a joke, right? He simply couldn’t have actually claimed to be unbiased in his assessment that FSU is the best 1-loss team in the country, right?
