Currently in a debate with a Mizzou fan on twitter as to if USC will finish above Mizzou o vice versa. I could see that one going either way.

youre right that some people will look at the georgia loss in black and white terms on how they finished, but its ridiculous to look at the georgia team we played in athens in the same manner as the one that finished the season.

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

I was REALLY hoping for #5 and cannot believe we got #4! And in both final polls! Alabama was punished a lot more than I thought they would be, ending up 7 in AP and 8 in Coaches. Just as surprising to me was Auburn staying at 2 and Mich St remaining at 3.

Tried to tell you and few others how it works:
Keep winning and move up. Lose and move down.

We won while others lost. And we could have a better team next year and finish lower if we lose the last game.

Wow, couldn't be happier. Looks like they actually used logic and head-to-heads. Awesome accomplishment!!

Of course, they'll probably put a "2" in front of it for the next poll...

I'm not embarrassed at all to be wrong. I just know OU finished their season in a strong way by beating Okie State and Alabama. Both of those wins were against teams that were ranked higher than our last two opponents. So, given the historical view of OU, it was completely reasonable to think they would move ahead of us.

But, like I said in another thread, I feel like we deserve to be where we are, and that's a lot different than thinking we would actually get it. Saying I think another team will move ahead of us in no way suggests I think we don't deserve to be ahead of them, but only that I feel the pollsters might give the other team a little more respect than they will us.

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?
Had FSU beaten Auburn like a rented mule, I believe I would have been correct on us being #3.

That's okay, flame. I don't have nearly enough time to "study" the polls to watch for trends. Congratulations on being right.
