Ironic that all 4 losses came from a team in the final poll.

I would think the 4 playoff teams should occupy the top 4 spots. I mean, they lost to each other. But hey, LSU finished as the 2nd best team in the SEC with an interim coaching staff, a fired HC, an injured Heisman candidate, and a rescheduled hurricane game. And finished ahead of that Gator Garbage! Not too shabby!

Lol doesn't take much for them to be "back on top". I guess 3 losses including Utah, Stanford, and a 50 point arse whipping by the only real team they played this year and beating a mediocre, overrated Penn State is enough to get the media darlings back in the top 5

Well someone had to occupy spots 3-25. Whining would happen regardless of who was 3rd.

I think USC is a really good team. Lost 3 games early, switched to a freshman QB who lit it up and never lost a game to end the season. Who knows if they will be better or worse next year, but they have one of the best QBs in college football. Future #1 draft pick IMO.
