Lol. So now we’re arguing about whether we should be ranked 24-25 or unranked. Man, we’re really competing for championships.

Ever since the AP awarded USC that fake National Championship, I quit paying attention to them. They are just a bunch of writers catering to the larger fan base. Most have never played real football anyway, so their opinions shouldn't matter.

This is why I don't like these polls. It's not about who's better, it's about who they want to see ranked. There's a computer system that actually calculates a top 25 rank based on point differential, strength of schedule, etc. Completely un bias and computes a rank by the numbers. It isn't acknowledged because it takes the human equation out of the rankings. The human equation is exactly what's wrong with the rankings because voters have thier own personal agendas. Ohio State got obliterated by Iowa. What do the voters do? Rank Iowa so they can keep OSU ranked at #11. Now it doesn't seem like that bad of a loss because Iowa is ranked. The only reason Bama dropped from #1 was because of the potential loss to LSU. They couldn't have a win against the #1 team in the country placed on LSU's resume. The biasness is real and it is shameful!

In what universe does it make sense to drop #19 for losing to #1? That's supposed to happen...

The AP poll has always been a big steaming pile of Bull Shite.

Who cares? Didn’t get it done. No moral victories. Just win out, get a decent bowl game, kick the crap out of whoever we play, and you have a 10 win season. Not bad!

All those teams u listed deserve respect. Doesn’t mean LEU couldn’t defeat them but they are good teams

I agree ExpoTiger but if they bothered to actually watch the games they would see that LSU played the #2/#1 team in the Nation better than anybody. Iowa is the only one I could see them keeping above LSU just because of the asswhooping they put on Ohio State.

The way our line play looked against Bama I would take our chances against anybody. QB still can't throw a deep ball but we would man handle just about anybody out there not wearing Crimson.

Agree. That’s some bs falling out of the poll. Statistically we beat them in every category but turnover and scoreboard. Minus the short field on that INT that cost an easy TD, we have played them the toughest so far. Should have at least stayed in the same spot.

These rankings are ridiculous. Ohio State gets embarrassed by an unranked team, falls to 11. LSU plays the best game anyone this season has had against #1, but falls out? I know, don't lose to Troy, and we'd be top 15. But you can tell the voters aren't watching these games.
