Default Sagarin's Rankings: Still Has Bama On Top, Carolina # 9, Taters # 22

http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/fbt12.htm

Just to add some more fuel to the fire. If you don't play ranked teams, you don't get ranked very highly......personally, I'd like to see the Taters get matched up with WVA again to see if they have improved.

Pay attention to the strength of schedule numbers.....Taters are # 81. This is why they can't get ranked in the BCS top 10.

I think we'd all like to see something more appropriate like this but it would punish teams like Clemson who can't get out of their own way as far as who the hell they play because the ACC sucks when it comes to football. None of them can play defense and most of the teams are glorified high school football teams.

Actually, the version of the rankings that is used by the BCS (the ELO CHESS version, which does take margin of victory into consideration) shows Bama 9th . . . right BEHIND the Gamecocks!

The ELO CHESS model has:

1. Notre Dame
2. Kansas State
3. Florida
4. Georgia
5. Oregon State
6. LSU
7. Oklahoma
8. South Carolina
9. Alabama
10. Texas A&M

Georgia, what a frickin joke...

They beat a Florida team w probably the worst offense Ive ever seen from them

What else have they done besides getting their ass beat by us

No doubt in my mind were the best team in the East. Again...

They still get to choose all of their non conference games. Look who they chose. They could impact their SOS if they wanted to.

I can see where he's coming from. Florida has a pretty bad offense and they just so happened to have the horse shoe up their butt that day. If we played that game twenty times, that's probably the only time a scenario would play out like that. Horrible luck on our part and terrific luck on theirs that day.

Florida is a terrible team, we just happened to be more terrible on that day. It was our Auburn game of last year.

Florida is not a terrible team. They beat us and LSU. They had one turnover riddled game against UGA on a neutral field and it cost them in a rivalry game. They play up or down to the level of the competition and don't get up for those out of conference games.

Yea I think we are a more talented team and we literally fumbled the game away in the Swamp but they have a great D and a good enough Offense and solid ST. To say they are a terrible team just makes no sense at all. I think they are still of the top 10 teams in the country.

And yet Clemson's computer ratings went up this week while SC's stayed the same.

Fortunately Sagarin's rating isn't even taken into consideration for Clemson's computer rankings.

Who caused their drives to start inside the 10......we did. Look, if we play the game again, do I think things would be different, absolutely, but guess what, you don't get mulligans in college football. We'll just have to learn from it and not do it again next year. Florida was lucky again 2 days ago. I do think FSU will beat them, and I think Bama will beat Ga, and I think we will beat Clemson....now where that puts us at the end of the season, I hope ahead of teams just mentioned, and maybe even A&M, but we'll just have to wait and see and only worry about the things we can control.
