"Well have you seen our corners?" Yes, and I have seen the defenses fielded by the other teams and they are a lot worse.

Yeah we got beat a few times in pass coverage, but it was against FLORIDA. We not scrambling for wins against unranked teams like the teams ahead of us (with the exception of Baylor) have done multiple times already. The rankings have been bias all year regarding the SEC (with the exception of Bama). The AP polls are worse.The only reason Ole Miss was up there was because they beat Bama. Before the loss and Chubbs injury, Georgia was playing good ball, and they couldn't even crack the top 4. The powers that be want a non SEC team to win it. Does anyone really believe that Utah is a better team that LSU? Utah!? It's always been that way.LSU just needs to keep winning. If they go undefeated, in the SEC, they can't justify keeping us out. If we lose, however, we won't get in. Bama is the only team that will get to the party with 1 loss. I don't agree with it, but history proves otherwise.

Mich State should have dropped due to their lucky win...should be dropped behind LSU, Clemson and Utah.

"have you seen our corners and safety blow so much coverage"
that has nothing to do with the fact that msu is ranked way too high, especially after just losing at mich and then being given the game

The Espn, AP, CBS, etc. polls mean ABSOLUTELY nothing and carry no weight..whatsoever... Its actually kind of funny. These polls just seem to reflect what some sportswriters think is going on in NCAA football till "The Committee" releases its initial final 4. ...and I agree..do ya think if bama was undefeated now, they would not be in the top 4????...Its basically all horse$hit for now....

"First time in a while that an undefeated SEC team is kept out of the top 4"
Well have you seen our corners and safety blow so much coverage like we have this year? Passing teams such as Baylor would eat us alive. Special teams....no comment.
