Pollin' It: AP Poll Puts Michigan Top-10; Coaches Poll, LOL

Michigan makes moves back up in the polls...that is unless the voters don't, you know, watch the games.

Yup, the coaches missed this one.

Let's get this out of the way: the AP Poll has Michigan 10th and the second Big Ten team behind MSU at seven. That is totally fine considering it was only MSU's second loss and it was close.

Now....

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Sorry, I just looked at the Coaches Poll, which has Michigan 14th.  Who is directly above Michigan?  That would be Wisconsin at 13th.  Yes, this is the same Wisconsin team Michigan just beat in Madison a little over a week ago.  Ahead of Wisconsin at 12th?  That'd be Iowa, the same Iowa Michigan beat at home last week.

Thus concludes your weekly reminder that coaches don't watch games...or check scores...or really do anything of value with a highly visible national poll.  Awesome.
