That's about right I guess. I still think Baylor is the most overrated team in the country. They won't get exposed though against UCF, but hey maybe they will. With only 1 loss and winning their division they deserve to be ahead of us obviously. There's five 1 loss teams. We're considered the best 2 loss team behind Stanford (who won their division). We finished about how the experts predicted us to pre-season. We were pre-season #6.

No one had Michigan State doing what they did. They didn't make the pre-season top 25.

Given all the unfortunate things that happened to UGA, they still had a decent year. That's not a bad loss at their place for us. They were pre-season top 5 team with a #1 vote. They beat a #6 LSU who in the end, was 6 points away from only losing 1 game to Alabama on their season. Clemson week 1 they barely lost. All things considered they played ok against Mizzou. They were in the Auburn game at auburn until a miracle happened. Had they not barely lost to Vanderbilt, they would be ahead of us in the east right now.

Really thought we'd move up to #6 this week with the losses by Oklahoma State and Missouri ahead of us, but Michigan State, Stanford and Baylor all jumped us - so we actually dropped down one spot . . . disappointing.

If I'm reading this chart right, it looks like we'll be ranked #6 in the BCS. (Unless it only counts for a portion of the BCS tabulation).

The far right number is one of the rankings used in the BCS Computer rankings. But it is averaged with the other computer rankings.

The order of the teams is based on record with the strength of schedule and point differentials/ points scored. That is why we drop to 16, but have a 6 with SOS and record only, which is what the BCS used.

Mizzou losing hurt us since we were 4 on JS last week.

Here's the rundown on the final votes. A lot of conference bias. And a lot of indecision on where the 2 loss teams should be ranked. Some coaches had us as high as 6th.

Looks like SOS is pretty fair on his votes. He is one of the few that thought Michigan State should be ranked higher than Alabama. And cool that Dabo ranked us at 8 but funny that he thinks clemson should be 9th.

I hope we can, but that may be asking for too much. Especially if AU wins the NC. But, we can finish ranked higher than we have ever finished a year and #6 or #7 is reasonable.
