Getting numerous (39.78373, -100.445882) results

Take a look at this dataset being returned through the https://github.com/geocoder-php/Geocoder (2.0) library with the Mapquest Provider.

The problem is, 39.78373, -100.445882 seems to be a catchall geocoding value.  I can verify any of the addresses with that result set does geocode correctly in Google Maps, at least, so what's going on?  Help!

Each geocode result is
Each geocode result is returned with a quality code which indicates how accurate and how confident each result is. I suspect you're running into A1XAX results which means the center of the US is being found. The open.mapquestapi.com geocoder does this with addresses not in the OSM data. The licensed data geocoder at www.mapquestapi.com is far better and will not return as many country level results.

I suspected that was the case

I suspected that was the case, that it is a fallback address. Thanks for your quick response!
