You misunderstand. A win at Vandy probably won't move us at all, but we are at #13 right now, which means that over the course of the next 3-4 weeks, granted we're winning, we can move back into the top 10. Perhaps if we look strong, and win convincingly against Florida, we'll be sniffing the top 5 again. We know that several teams will be moving around because of their matchups, LSU/UGA, TAMU/BAMA, LSU/BAMA, CLEMSON/FSU, OSU/MICHIGAN, STANFORD/OREGON. The top 10 will certainly change, and we can only move up if we win and look strong doing it. Still it's going to be a grind with this inexperienced defense.
