I am fine with this. Very logical honestly. I can't disagree.

Well, Bama could get lucky as LSU and become a NC with 2 losses...unless LSU'S D starts playing better, I don't see them making the final 4...

There is no reason to rank Bama there now. If you believe they are the best team, they will have time to prove that and you can rank them there when they deserve that right. There's no point in being the first guy to do so.

I love how Bama's losses become phantom losses. Like they never really happened. Ha.

I watched the Top 25 show yesterday and Kirk explained that his ranking of Bama is that he believes they've settled on a QB now and that it was a bit of a projection for bama but that he thinks they're playing the best football in his opinion.

He did mention that when Bama played Ole Miss, they started a diff. qb and mentioned the 5 turnovers and still only lost by 6 with even a chance to win at the end.
You may not agree with him but he brings solid points and a valid argument to the table.

Personally, I feel as if LSU is starting to fear that last year is repeating itself but like others have said, beat us and it won't matter.

They're setting the table for both SEC teams, LSU and bama, so that the winner of that game has already been mentioned. SB Nation also gives bama a lot of love this week. Keep in mind, the SEC Network is a multi-billion dollar investment for ESPN/ABC

Bama is the only team that has a bad loss that gets worse and people forget about it. For some reason when Bama loses at home no one notices, when anyone else loses at home its a giant indictment on their program.

Its because bama has destroyed 2 teams that were suppose to be good. They made UGA and aTm their bitch.

LSU's inferiority complex is shining through in a lot of these responses. 2011 has shaken them so badly it's now comical. Sack up and beat us and give us our 2nd less. If not, watch as we ascend, again.

Bama is the only team that seems to need 2 losses to be discredited. It just reeks of inconsistency in the voting that a they are given a mulligan, knowing that any other team with 1-loss wouldn't be near the top 4.

Doesn't matter. We play them. His poll selections and opinions mean nothing. We keep winning and we will be fine.

LOL. 2011 says hello!
