The Coaches Poll is a weekly event in which coaches across the country ask their media relations departments to submit their ballots of the top 25 teams in the country. Right now, it doesn't matter -- people generally use the AP Poll to denote rankings -- but in a crazy turn of events, it is a part of the BCS, meaning it will play a part in determining who plays for a national title. Thus, the latest Coaches Poll update is an important news item that could actually alter the BCS race.
