You don't get it?

Let me go over it again.

Florida was 4-8 last year with a loss to an FCS school.

Beating Idaho and Eastern Michigan doesn't make them a top 25 team after that.

If it does, there are about 50 other teams that deserve to be ranked as well.

And excuse me, I didn't realize the national championship games from 2006-2012 had so much bearing on the 2014 preseason rankings.

That logic is stupid anyway because only 3 of those 8 teams actually won one of those titles.

Yeah, but SEC.

It just means Georgia Southern was underranked last year.

If VT wanted to be ranked in the preseason they shouldn't have joined the ACC.

What a joke.

No wonder there are multiple 3 and 4 loss SEC teams ranked at the end of the year.

And yea VTHokie you're probably right, Florida will be ranked after beating Idaho and Eastern Mich. even though they finished 4-8 last year with a lost to an FCS school.

Why is K State even ranked? They lost 5 games last year. Don't think ND should be ranked either.

Florida would walk through the Coastal.

Arguably would be the 2nd best team in the ACC.

Auburn plays the most ranked teams with 7. Ohio State plays the least ranked teams - 1. How pathetic is that?!

Default Re: Gamecocks ranked 9th in the preseason AP Poll

I haven't heard about the prospects for VT to have a good season. Thankfully for them Logan Thomas is gone. He was a GREAT practice player with ENORMOUS skills that was just glitchy as HELL in games. HE was as likely to throw three picks as he was three TDs. Why Beamer and company stuck with him is beyond most VT fans.

That said, I do think that the preseason rankings are pretty spot on this season although in all honestly it is a crap shoot anyway, because at this stage NOBODY REALLY knows if the holes that are being plugged at Texas A&M will be done better than the holes that WE have at Carolina.

Our youth in the secondary could play lights out and our super depth at running back and the great Oline that we are supposed to have might be able to run the ball effectively.

It is my opinion that Dylan Thompson will only be as good as our running game allows him to be. Shaw was a run-first kind of QB and got us out of trouble a LOT with his legs. He ONLY threw the ball when he CLEARLY saw wide open receivers. Thompson will get time to throw IF our Oline and Running game is indeed as good as most of us think it is.

However - NOBODY REALLY KNOWS any of these things at this stage. Only after we play a few games will those answers show up. Only THEN are rankings more accurate. So right now, I'll take the 9th ranking and see how things play out.

By the way - I HATE Clemsux as much as anyone on here, but they COULD be a lot better than they are ranked right now. Lots of question marks around the SEC (QBs) and ACC.

Ohio State always gets ranked way higher than they should because I don't know why. They consistently prove they don't belong whenever they play a good team. They beat the crap out of crappy teams, but the second they play anyone good, they collapse.

I don't think Georgia is overrated at all, iyam. By the time the end of the season rolled around, they were starting to get decimated with injuries. Though they did lose a bit from last year, I think they will still be a solid force in the East this year.

I don't either. I think UGA is a top 10 team. People on here don't like to take their Garnet glasses off.

Their RBs are so good. This kid Chubb, oh man not looking forward to 3 years of him. And Mason is a smart and talented kid who was just behind the all time leading sec passer.

And their D will be much improved

Rumor has it Braxton Miller is done for the season. Ohio State will probably drop out of the top ten quicker than usual now.

Doesn't anyone realize, the pre-season rankings aren't about LAST YEAR. It's about the perceived potential of the upcoming year. Otherwise, wouldn't Auburn be #2? But because they are scheduled to play 7 Top 25 teams (including all of the SEC West and the Top 2 perceived teams in the SEC East).

USC would be #4, but we're replacing our 3 yr starter who only threw 1 interception last year. Also wouldn't Bama and Ohio St be lower too, because they both had bowl losses?

By week 3, we should know how accurate these rankings are.
