Coaches or media - who gets it???

We are talking the Polls here. Link here.

When he was football coach at the University of Colorado, Bill McCartney used to tell sports writers covering his team that the only Top 25 poll that really matters was the one voted on by coaches.
Members of the media, he said, didn't know enough to pick the best teams in the nation. At least not until 1990, when they picked his Buffaloes No. 1 in the final Associated Press poll, while the coaches, then voting in the United Press International poll, selected Georgia Tech as No. 1.
