They think margin of victory means something, it doesn't. It is only true that a team with more talent has a better chance of winning, otherwise, the outcome of each game depends of how the team executes in a given game (including turnovers). LSU can make a top 25 team like Washington look like a high school team one day and beat a terrible Auburn team 12-10, not dominate Towson; outplay Alabama, and beat good teams like A&M, SC, and play a close game vs Ole Miss. Just take a look at margin of victories for the current #1 team (ND). Beating Ole Miss in a close game does not mean we are not capable of beating any top 10 team on any given day. Did you ever think K Sate loses to Baylor by 5 TDs? So, rankings, discussions, and projections purely based on who you beat and by how much is worthless. If you have enough talent to be competitive with good teams anything can happen.
