Harris poll == people, with inherent bias.
Coaches poll == people, many of whom have a vested interest in the results, which means even more bias than the Harris
computers == secret formulas not open to public scrutiny
I'm not saying that I'd prefer a committee, but none of those three meet my definition of "objective".
Except the Harris, Coaches, and computers all have to publish their results. And I'll take the objectivity of a bunch of people independently submitting an open ballot over the objectivity of a small group of people meeting behind closed doors.
