Here is a link to Josh Kendall's ballot......take it with a grain of salt as he has been a douche nozzle in the past when it comes to ranking the Gamecocks....notice Clemson and Carolina lost by the same margin to teams one ranking apart yet Clemson is ranked 18 and USC is no where to be found....

Figured we would flip with aTm from 9 to 21; kinda surprised aTm is only 13. At least we're still ahead of Clem5on :kill:

I'll take 21 with a big freaking smile right now. We can easily march back up the board if we start taking care of business.

Judging by his ridiculous overreaction, it seems like he also has multiple usernames on this board!

After losing all the players we did, this is probably where we should have started out anyway.

Better to lose early. I think TAM is damn good. I also know we are nowhere near as bad as we played.

Glad we stayed in the polls but it won't mater a loss in either game in the next 2 weeks and we fall out.

When we lost to UT last year we fell to 21. And where did we end up? #4, baby!

Keep the faith.

UT looked pretty good Sunday night. I expect that number to increase over the course of the year.

Yay! Still in the top 25!

Polls don't matter anymore. Week 2 polls matter even less than they did before the playoff

Spurrier sure seemed to care about them today at his presser.

I don't think polls should come out until after the 4th or 5th game. You pretty much know by then who's a contender or a pretender.

I will support these guys like crazy, but my faith in their ability to make it to the seccg is non-existent.

So last year when USC hardly beat some teams they drop in the polls, but #1 FSU almost loses to an unranked OK ST, and don't drop 1 position?

Pre-season polls are crap, I say let teams stay where they are from the previous year, it puts more emphasis on having a good year each year that determines your rankings.

The pre-season polls are here to keep teams like Oklahoma, Southern Cal, Texas, BAMA, and/or Ohio St in the top 10 each year to have a chance to go to the NCG.
