ATHENS, Ga. -- For now, the USA Today Sports Coaches Poll still matters in college football, and Georgia coach Mark Richt plans to keep participating despite recent discussions about how voting creates a conflict of interest.

“All I know is what I do. I do my best,” Richt said Friday. “Do I watch all those games? I can’t watch all those games. I watch highlights, and I’ll read some linescores, and I do make my vote. I do vote. I do try to vote in a way where if everybody saw it, I could make some sense of it.”

USC coach Lane Kiffin recently created headlines for telling reporters he would not pick his Trojans first in the poll despite having done exactly that. Kiffin withdrew as a voter in the wake of the controversy.
