It's psychological for the pollsters.
If NC loses the pollsters would see that both teams have two losses and LSU would have more wins. Small thing but maybe important.
quote:While I don't care about the polls directly, they are a part of the postseason seeding process. The main thing is hosting a super, which of course LSU is in line for at this point, but having a higher seed going into Omaha is also nice.
I don't give a shite about the polls.
