Polls are useless. But at least this one involves people who generally spend time watching games, unlike moronic sports reporters who are regionally biased and coaches busy coaching. So if there was a poll to consider, it is this one. IMHO.
Also, I note that Gottlieb is one of only two people to have Syracuse #2.
I am a big believer that Gottlieb doesn't hate Syracuse as much as everyone thinks and this is more ammo for that debate. Although he and Brennan did look kind of happy whenever Syracuse lost, I think Gottlieb just generally looks that way. Brennan was way more personal for some reason. Whatever.
