It looks like 6 and that works for me. If Ohio loses that puts Clemson back in the top 10 and I like them better where they are.

the first point is a good one, if oklahoma beats bama likely both of them would end up ahead of us so we'd drop a spot. i think it would still be extremely unlikely we'd jump auburn even if they lost by 50. the last two scenarios are possible on some ballots, but i think it would be extremely rare and not even close to enough to get us to jump higher than 5th overall.

you never know with pollsters though, baylor and stanford were ahead of us, you may see a degree of bias toward a team from those conferences if it comes down to us vs them (oregon, oklahoma st).

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

Sometimes it is funny how the rankings work from week to week. I think that both Baylor and Stanford will drop behind the Gamecocks after their bowl losses. However we could get jumped by others that have a win and the same or better record (possibilities are UCF, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Oregon, Louisville, an as a long shot but not likely Clemson). The only other team we could jump in my opinion would be Ohio State and as a long shot maybe Alabama if they loose big).

I think that we end of either 5th, 6th, or 7th. We should be ahead of Clemson regardless (but I have seen stranger things happen).

Here is how it plays out
Alabama beats Oklahoma and will end up at 2nd.
The winner of FSU and Auburn ends up 1st and the looser ends up 3rd or 4th (I am predicting Auburn to win because of their much tougher schedule and wins).
Michigan State will probably end up 3rd if FSU wins and 4th if Auburn wins.
So That is the top 4

I predict that Ohio State beats Clemson (both had a lot if sure wins and were not tested very often during the season) in a close one and will end up 5th.

I predict that Missouri beats Oklahoma State - which yields 6th, 7th, and 8th as USC Gamecocks, Missouri, and Oregon in that order.

So then UCF, LSU, Louisville, UCLA, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State will have the 9th-14th 11th spots.

(If Oklahoma State beats Mizzou just flip flop them; If Clemson beats Ohio State then that puts both of them around 8th to 10th; If Oklahoma beats Alabama, that puts both of them in around the 6th to 8th mix)

With all of the, this is my top 10 only predictions:
1. Auburn
2. Alabama
3. Florida State
4. Michigan State
5. Ohio State
6. South Carolina
7. Missouri
8. Oregon
9. UCF
10. LSU or Louisville

History is going to get us in the rankings, I'm afraid. Unless something strange happens, ou is going to beat bama, and I won't be shocked if BOTH end up being ahead of us in the final polls.

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

I honestly think we will be #5 in the final AP. What's great is that the result of the Orange Bowl and NC Game do not affect this. Pretty crazy, eh?

FINAL AP TOP 6:
1. Florida State
2. Michigan State
3. Auburn
4. Ohio State
5. South Carolina
6. Alabama (coming off a loss, they drop bellow us)

Missouri, Oklahoma, UCF, Oregon, Stanford, and Baylor will likely round out the final AP Top 12. There's no chance any of them slide above us.

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

OU beat bama by 14 points, so they will almost certainly jump us, even though they shouldn't, imo. But if Alabama is ahead of us in the final poll after the way we closed out our season and they crapped the bed in their last two games, I will be pissed.

Number 6 guys this just gave analyst what they needed to keep us at 6. We don't get the recognition we deserve and after the games I've seen C14 draft status should have just moved up

I think Mizzou would have to blow out OK ST to stay ahead of SC. If FSU beats Auburn like they have most teams, y'all could be the highest ranked SEC team.

Time will certainly tell, but I don't expect fsu to have the same type of domination in the bowl game they've had the rest of the year. I don't know who is going to win, but I do think it's possible fsu's incredibly soft schedule might catch up to them. Auburn will be the best team by FAR fsu will have faced this year. Like I said, that doesn't necessarily mean Auburn will win, but the huge step up in competition might be a shock to fsu for a while. I could be completely wrong and fsu blows Auburn out just like everyone else, which would be fine with me.
