Point spread poll vs. Rice

I know it's mostly in fun, but nobody else is asking this question, and I'm curious.

If we're making fun of Pete Carroll for running up the score against Arkansas, and Dorrell has shown every intention of not doing that by taking out the first-team offense and running out the clock against Utah last weekend, is it fair that the poll considers a 16-20 point victory this Saturday "nothing spectacular"?

Maybe it's because he's trying to make UCLA more like an NFL-type team, where scores aren't run up nearly as often as in college, but if, like last week, we never trail and victory never seems to be in question, I don't want anybody to criticize this team for winning by 2 1/2 touchdowns, and I'm afraid this poll is set up to create unrealistic expectations.
