How is EO Smith 19th in the poll at 7-4? Two of their losses are to Windham (11-2) and Windham doesn't even get a mention in the top 20???

What does that tell ya, huh? There's NO WAY a team that has lost twice to another team should be ranked higher. I stopped paying attention to these things a few years ago for an almost indentical scenario as the one you just wrote. When you get biased humans influencing these polls, they're meaningless. Feed the numbers in a computer and let the results speak for themselves. Humans ruin everything.
