imo the biggest reason is because they aren't eligible for anything and voters are not gonna give credit to a team that can't factor into postseason play...
if the computers were basing if off the human polls, wouldn't they completely resemble the polls then? i don't know for sure, but i think there are other factors in the computer rankings because each formula for each computer ranking is different, hence so many and the average is taken for the bcs poll
