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

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.

Bama can lose at home every year and it doesn't matter. Wow

"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..."

At least LSU won their division.

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.

[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.

LSU in top 4, no Bama:

"I've always liked Kirk. He actually knows what he's doing."

Bama ranked over LSU:

"Kirk is a douche and no one cares what that hack thinks."

It doesn't matter bc LSU is going in dry!! This is our year... Bama looks shaky and looks like a team that will fall apart when they hit a wall. LSU is just getting started confidence is building and will be sky high for bama. Let them talk up bama and watch all of them be bug eyed when LSU stomps them at home. If OM whipped them imagine what LF and BH is going to do? They are too confident and I will be thinking like the rest of the nation. Stop LF and LSU has nothing but they couldn't be more wrong! Can't wait to see the defeat on everyone's face.

@pianoman. TAM had a ton of turnovers against Bama, but TAM sure as heck wasn't "rewarded" for a pretty loss against a highly ranked team. LSU had the better win this weekend. There is no logical reason to elevate a one loss Bama team above LSU until the prove they are better on the field. This smells like clickbait.

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

It is disrespectful to LSU but Saban and bama have proved it on the field many times. After LSU wins a couple championships and beats them in consecutive games I suppose we will get the same god like treatment but until then they will doubt LSU. Just the way it is right now. I'll tell y'all this if LSU stops W Kentucky's pass offense this week bama is in big big big trouble because that means LSU fixed the secondary issues. I think LSU is gonna stop the run first and when they abandon the run put pressure on their QB to throw accurate short to medium passes by taking the long ball away and he won't be able to execute. I mean come on people this Dline goes up against LF everyday? If that's not a perfect game like practice for Henry then idk what is. Stop Henry and bama goes down. Can't have TOs and can't make stupid mistakes. Tigers win in Tuscaloosa 38-20!

I won't judge this just yet, but will be LIVID if we do beat Alabama and are not consensus #1 due to them already being above us. That will tell the true story, you win, you get respect.

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

Because.....Bama, that's why

For Rice Cakes, who gives a F#@K what the "experts" say. They are guessing as much as anyone else.

Bama looks better right now. So what. It will play out on the field.

If we are meant to get to the playoff we will. If not, then congrats to the team that takes that opportunity away from us.
