I miss the BCS that would have Georgia #1 due to strength of schedule.

The worst part of CFB = rankings

Miami is undefeated and beat Syracuse and yet, a 1-loss Clemson is better. Complete BS

I still think a home loss to Troy should outweigh any SEC wins other than Bama

These polls mean nothing.

We don’t have as many ranked opponents on our schedule as we normally do. Not our fault, just a down year in the SEC as a whole. So outside of Bama, and maybe A&M, it’s going to be difficult to move up. But remember, the CFP poll comes out in a week and that’s the one that counts. Moreso, I’m just looking for a strong finish with a double figure win season and a good bowl win to solidify recruiting for next year and we should be able to compete for a championship. The process is taking shape and O and the coaching staff are doing a good job with their young team.

Not a down year, been bad the past 2 years. SEC is on the decline because of all the bad coaches in the league.

SEC office has exactly what they want, bama in the west and an undefeated team in the east.

I actually figured we would move up a bit more after the last two wins...I guess we have to keep winning and wait on some other folks to lose.
Reply48 months
We are who we are.

they didn't get blown out by Moo State, or lose to Troy. They did not but the team that Troy beat beat them.
Reply48 months
Should be 19th but we know what we have to do.
Reply48 months
So, does beating Auburn not count as being better then they are?
Reply48 months
Well, they didn't get blown out by Moo State, or lose to Troy.

That's not how this works..That's not how any of this works.

Right? I mean why is Syracuse not ranked ahead of Clemson? Or Troy ahead of us?
