Coaches Poll Question

We all know the coaches poll is very suspect with coaches hiding votes(except Joe PA who split his vote 3 ways, very classy).

I heard a rumor from a SID friend of mine that seems to think Mack Browns brother at UAB moved Cal from 4 to 8 on the last poll. Has anyone heard this?

That being said what could be done for stuff like this?

Polls suck. Computer rankings suck.

Have them settle it on the field.
