Y'all really going to be pissed when 2 of the 4 teams in the playoff are still Alabama and LSU.

Lee's_Austin: lacydog: If you don't think the SEC is overrated, then please enlighten me as to why Florida is ranked so high? They don't have a single good QB, they've struggled against BOWLING GREEN of all teams, and they're coming off of a 6-6 season. Who thought they needed to be ranked before the season started at all? And what have they done to earn their current #14 ranking? They beat another overrated SEC team in Tennessee, who was 5-7 last year and has done nothing of note this year. That's supposed to be impressive?

I get that everyone has a hard-on for the SEC, but neither of those teams should've be ranked so damn high.

What, in your opinion, is not good about Jeff Driskel.


Moreover, what has UF done to *not* deserve a ranking at this point? They rolled up 555 yds of offense on the road in Neyland stadium, they've outscored their two conference opponents 34-6 in two 2nd halves, Driskel is still learning but they've not turned the ball over in the past two games and scored 2 picks against Bray on Saturday.

Tennessee may not be a conference-winning team, but they're better than they've been in many years. A&M has a new freshman QB but the dude has a lot of natural talent.

Who else below them on the list has played harder road games, won, and consistently improved from week to week? Who really deserves to be ranked higher right now?

seelorq: Yes. UGA got it easy this year. By current rankings, they will play just one top 7 team for the rest of the season (#7, South Carolina). Florida, by way, will play four, including LSU.


So, Florida's schedule is tougher than Georgia's, in part, because Florida has to play Georgia. Meanwhile, Georgia only has to play Florida. You're a farking idiot, even though Florida's schedule is tougher.

Notre Dame has no business being ranked in the top 25. Their conference schedule is so weak, even Boise State plays a tougher one.

das: I like how USA Today pretends that tOSU doesn't exist.


USA Today Top 25 is factored into the BCS Ranking. Since Ohio State can't bowl this season, they're not ranked. The AP Top 25 is more representative of teams that can and can't bowl.

Chunks McGunks: I'm sorry I have offended you. I did not realize you were so sensitive.


Two counts of false premise.

You said OU "almost lost". I am just pointing out that 24-7 is not almost losing. Winning in overtime is almost losing. Winning on a FG late is almost losing. The other team missing a FG late is almost losing. Winning by more than 2 touchdowns is not almost losing.

TheOther: If ND goes 11-1 or 12-0, ESPN would dynamite an orphange if necessary to make sure that the Irish are in the championship game.

ND vs. Alabama? They would shoot spooge on the ISS' windows.


Any conference hoping to portray the SEC as overrated better pray to god this match up doesn't happen.

SEC teams are talked up by ESPN (a business partern with the SEC), and SEC teams are ranked highly at the beginning of the season so when they play each other it's easier to keep the actual good teams, such as Bama or LSU, high in the rankings through the season. It's also a mediocre Michigan team was ranked #8, so when Bama smoked them, it would give them sufficient cause to rank Bama even higher. It's a self full filling prophecy.

It goes both ways, I will explain that if you explain why a shiatty team like FSU is ranked so high when they have played even shiattier teams.

seelorq: That's the current ranking of the one other ranked team that UGA will play other than Florida at this time, so it serves as a benchmark of sorts to illustrate how weak their schedule is relative to Florida's at this time, barring no other movement in the rankings from now until the end of october.



Fixed to show ridiculousness

Florida is ranked because they're 2-0 in conference and just whipped a Tennessee team that some (not me) thought would contend for the East. Now personally, I don't think Florida is good enough to win the East, and they certainly aren't good enough to beat Alabama or LSU, which suggests to me that Florida's ranking will work itself out over the course of the season.
