I believe polls need to be more results-oriented, and less about what people think.

Over the last few weeks Connor has been asking if the D1 lacrosse poll was serious, evaluating where teams are ranked from #1 to #20 and seeing if the voters got it right. But an interesting thought posed by one of our Twitter followers has us thinking: Is 20 the right number to rank?
