With friends like these

College football coaches like to talk about how they understand the game and fans (and media) are just emotional bystanders to what happens on fall Saturdays.

Don't believe it.

In this week's overreaction, Michigan falls out of the coaches' top 25. Thirty-eight of the 60 coaches voting left the Wolverines off their ballot following Michigan's loss to Appalachian State on Saturday.

I realize it's a huge upset - maybe the biggest in college football history. But Appalachian State is a I-AA power and not some garbage bottom feeder of college football.

A more sane approach would have the Wolverines dropping into the 20s.

But I guess the coaches are just as emotional as fans/media, etc. when it comes polling time.
