True. But Michigan State was 12-1 and we were 10-2. That's a significant difference record wise. Plus, the Spartans were conference champs.

We have the same record as Oklahoma, 11-2, right now and neither team won its conference. There would be no justice in the Sooners jumping us, but I'm aware it could very well happen.

Let me be clear about this. I don't think Alabama OR Oklahoma SHOULD be ranked ahead of us when the final polls come out, but I fully expect at least one of them to be. Why do I expect it? Because the perception of Alabama is enough to keep them from falling too far, I think, but even the pollsters won't be able to justify letting Alabama stay ahead of Oklahoma, so if 'Bama doesn't fall far, then OU will have to move up enough to be ahead of UA, and that combination might be enough to put them in front of us.

My belief? MSU was and still is a one-loss team....they beat the #2 team which was undefeated...while we were a 2-loss team. They deserved to jump us and proved it by beating Stanford.
So you think a 2-loss #11 Okie is going to jump a 2-loss #8 Gamecock team? You do realize our guys have wins over potentially 3 Top Ten teams? Okie has beaten one....Bama. It's not going to happen....Gamecocks deserve to be ahead of Okie, taters, and Mizzou (all 2 loss teams).

The bigger question is how far Bama drops and whether they drop lower than our guys.

I agree that there is no anti-USC bias out there. My concern is that voters in Big 12 and PAC 12 country are not going to rank 4 SEC teams ahead of every team in those two conferences. If that's the case, Bama should be the odd SEC team out, considering they lost their last two games. But I have my doubts.

Anyway, hope you're right.

Default Where do we finish in the polls?

We always gets the short end of the stick. I wouldn't be surprised at all with our ranking.

I kind of wish Spurrier would have kept his mouth shut, Dabo made us look like shit last night.

That's all I've heard all day long from Clemson!

Yeah if anything Dabo looks ignorant for boasting when he has lost to us 5 yrs in a row. Which is why so many are pointing out those loses.

If FSU destroys Auburn, could we possible jump them?

If Bama and OSU lose and Auburn gets destroyed. Could we possibly jump one or all to move into #3-#5?
2 out of 3 so far. If FSU embarasses Aub, maybe that exposes Bama even more and jumps us ahead and into #3 or #4.

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

What none of us have commented on yet (at least not that I've seen) is that the polls are all about the voters' opinions, so they don't necessarily reflect what happens on the field with multiple teams. In other words, if someone still believes Alabama is the best team in the country, they are free to vote for Alabama #1. In no way are the pollsters required to go by the way a team finishes the season as compared to others.

You can act like what he said last night didn't sting all you want. The fact that we haven't made it to a BCS game or won a BCS game is important. If it wasn't, explain why everybody was so worked up about us not making it to a BCS game.

I don't think his comments stung. Everyone's worked up because everyone knows we were more deserving that multiple teams in the BCS bowls, including Clemson.

No one is saying the BCS was not a goal. It definitely was. But everyone knows the reason we haven't been to the BCS is due to the flaws in the system. Everyone also knows the only reason Clemson was in 2 BCS bowls are because of the flaws in the system and their crappy conference.

Everybody is worked up because they didn't belong playing in the Orange Bowl! How in the hell does Clemson play for the Orange Bowl as the 12th ranked team in the country while we play in the Capital One Bowl? It defies rationality, and everyone knows it including Clemson fans. At least the last time they played in that game they won the ACC, which they didn't do this year. So, they aren't good enough to win the ACC, but they are good enough to play in the Orange Bowl?
