NASAM: FSU at #3 was ridiculous anyway. Their SoS is a farking joke.


It's no wonder they can't draw a crowd anymore. Tallahassee is deep in the heart of SEC country, and they spend their season playing Wake Forest and Boston College while everyone around them is wrapped up in Bama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and the rest. No one cares about the ACC in the South. Who would, it's a lousy conference.

not a single b1g team is ranked in the coaches poll. that's impressive!

No mention of Kentucky!? Oh wait they suck.

davidphogan: SnarfVader: davidphogan: Oregon and Oregon State are both in the top 10? Weird...

If that trend continues the Civil War game would be beyond awesome.

I hope they both go into it undefeated.


Now, that would be a fantastic game. It's entirely possible (were they both to go undefeated to that point) the winner would get a NC berth.

USC has struggled in Pac-12 play while Oregon has dominated.

and

USC isn't on Oregon St.'s schedule.
 
2012-10-08 03:41:50 AM  
no one expected THE OSU to be undefeated with what is thought to be the hard part of their schedule past them. lets see if the teams ranked higher lose games, sending THE OSU into the championship game that they cant play in.
 
2012-10-08 05:32:32 AM  
The SEC has four top ten teams right now mostly because of reputation. Alabama should go unbeaten. They're schedule is rather weak compared to Florida, South Carolina or any team in the Pac 12 or Big 12. If Alabama loses to, say, Tennessee or MSU, then we should rightfully downgrade the conference.

I think this year the Pac 12 is the strongest conference. Stanford is going to end this Golden Goddess worship in South Bend on Saturday.

LOL @ Dawgs.

I am hoping to see the regular season end with Ohio State as the only team from any AQ conference to be undefeated. With Penn State #2 in the Leaders.

And the #3 in the Leaders pulling off a miracle to win the Big Ten championship game, and going with its four (or perhaps more) losses to the Rose Bowl.

Apparently Aaron Murray's father was diagnosed with thyroid cancer hours before kickoff - working on finding a better source for it, but it's confirmed.

Couple this with the egging/rolling of his house in Athens and its enough to make you not want to live on this planet anymore.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: After so many years of South Carolina winning about as often as as a cat wins Westminster, it's nice to see them doing well the past few years.

/not much of a sports fan


I went to SC in the 90s, but since I wasn't a native I never really gave two sh*ts about the Gamecocks. That, and there wasn't much reason to care.

Still, it's nice to see them kicking ass these days.

2012-10-08 09:03:26 AM  

Sargun: 7th Son of a 7th Son: If SC can beat both LSU and Fla, then they should be #2 if not #1.

LSU and Florida are both above-average teams. LSU has a great defense but can't run a ball to save its life, and Florida is so bad they barely outscored the most anemic offense since, well, insert any anemic offensive cliche here

LSU.

Aar1012: I'm glad that a 3-2 Michigan is more deserving of being in the top 25 then my undefeated Bobcats. I'm hoping that Arkansas also comes back to the Top 25 before Ohio


A few years ago Central Michigan was 10 or 11-0 before cracking the top 25. The MAC gets no respect.

Nor do they deserve it.

Isn't it about par for the course for the Big 10 to lose at least 2 games to the MAC every year?

Those comments Saban made recently about how the game is too fast and officials should look into slowing the speed down, that was some of the most asinine bullshiat I've read in a while.

Did a terrible Illinois team get to the Rose Bowl a few years back with three or four losses and not even win the Big Ten?

I mean, he might as well just be honest and say, "I recruited everyone I have based on one way to play football, and I have the best in the country at playing that way. No fair playing a different way so I might lose."

Confirmed

He apparently found out yesterday, but the point still stands: we may have lost a big game, but anyone who eggs/rolls a player's house after a loss deserves sterilization.

Psychohazard: Clemson was way over-ranked last week at 15. Glad to see that was sorted out this week.



Just throw Clemson into the same lot as pretty much every other one-loss team in the country. You can pretty much rearrange every one-loss team in the top-25 and have a decent argument about it.

But, if Clemson is going to get penalized for losing by 10 at FSU, UGA should be nearly out of the top 25 for getting absolutely curb-stomped in Columbia.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, egg Bobos house not Murray's, maybe Richt and Bobos houses are gated under protection for that reason.......

Sucks for Murray though

Sorry that's a stupid comment, out of all the sec teams bama plays a harder schedule than most.

We're still drawing 65-70,000 for most games, but you're right, the ACC is a complete joke. I'm mystified as to why FSU has stuck around. The ACC could not be more unwelcoming. Whether it's the weekly apologizing for terrible officiating against FSU, the constant Thursday night road games, or paltry tv contract, it's clear that FSU is expected to sit in the corner and STFU. That's fine, more power to them, but FSU needs to GTFO.

And yes, FSU is overrated even at #12.

You can complain about Ohio not being ranked while Michigan is, but they do have a common opponent. Ohio struggled with a team Michigan beat by about 50.
 
2012-10-08 05:46:09 PM  
I don't get it. The media has bought all into the hype of Notre Dame this, Notre Dame that. They're a fourth-rate team who has been lucky to not face any good teams. And yet ESPN thinks it's a good idea to send their show to South Bend? Don't encourage the bastards. ESPN ought just not broadcast the game Saturday - nobody would notice.
 
2012-10-08 07:56:26 PM  
Having Stanford ranked below USC is asinine. This is one of many reasons the polls suck a loss early is not as significant as a loss late.

Why, because you don't agree with it? I thought it was hilarious, maybe it'll light something under those idiots a$$es. Probably be just a joint though, so not gonna help them win any games of consequence.

I would laugh so hard but I'd settle for winning "The Michigan Bowl". Also there is no way in hell the Bucks are a top 10 team. Programs on probation shouldn't be ranked in ANY poll but the AP voters are seriously high on something if they think tOSU is the 8th best team in the country! Glad to see (regular)OSU getting some love though.
