Notre Dame should have at least dropped out of the top 5. They got dominated.

Obviously, the sickening amount of love that ESPN was showing for ND is pervasive among the media and coaches. I don't mean to show any disrespect or hatred for ND but instead for those who had a vote in the polls. There are at least three teams ranked behind ND that would beat ND. That alone makes the rest of the polls suspect. Thank God we'll have a playoff soon. The sooner we get that playoff to 8 teams, the better. 16 would be nice, but 8 would probably be enough to make sure that all the teams that have a chance to win such a playoff are in it.

According to Vegas, the entire top 10 would be favored over ND on a neutral field

If Thompson doesn't make that TD pass with 15 seconds left then Clemson is ranked ahead of SC....several spots ahead of them. In other words, everyone would think Clemson is better.
If LSU hadn't thrown twice with 2 minutes remaining, you would have lost and you wouldn't be posting now. Do you actually think you're good because you beat Wake and Duke every year.

I absolutely do. However, I also take away the memory of a 35-7 beating that had the Georgia fans here in Georgia disillusioned and sad for weeks! Maybe, voters of the press can erase the whipping they took and help reassure them. Or, maybe Aaron Murray and UGA will continue to assume themselves better than SC and not what hit them, again. Yet, I have a feeling Murray's peripheral vision to his left will be highly sensitive.

Or had not played that wide open zone against Hopkins on the last drive...

Fans say we shouldn't have lost...yea we shouldn't have lost...if only we didn't fumble the ball, throw interceptions and play like garbage...

Just like had Thompson not made that TD pass in the last seconds of the game, Clemson would have been 3-4 spots ahead of SC in the final poll.

The final poll had more to do with the bowl results than the actual season (See: UGA being way ahead of SC in the final poll)

so are you saying if the poll was more about the actual season, that clemson would be ahead of SC, and both would be ahead of UGA?

also, how is UGA being "way" ahead of SC, an example of bowl results? both teams won their bowl game and their opponents were ranked near identical. you will have to explain yourself. I feel that you are trying to hard to find a way ahead of SC.

The 11 points are irrelevant if the ball is not fumvled the came doesnt play out that way. Uga can say the samething about their game with us
