Default Where do we finish in the polls?

I don't think we've ever finished in the top 5 - and I don't see it happening this year - but where do we finish the season? Clemson could help us move up but it ain't worth it to root for them. We should all be big UCF fans. I think we end up at #7.

Realistically? I think we deserve #6 or #7 and end up at #7 or #8

if baylor and ohio state lose we end up at no.5. thats best case scenario. we all would be happy if clemson loses so really its a win win for us. if they beat ohio state we jump a spot in the polls, if they lose then we can laugh at them.

I agree, though don't forget that the Rose bowl loser should help us move up.

Yep. Regardless of who wins the Rose bowl, the loser will have at least the same number of losses we do, but timing is always crucial when considering rankings. I think we'll probably end up moving up one spot, and that will be because of the Rose bowl loser falling in the rankings.

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

If the Rose bowl is a close game (+/- 3 pts) I dont think those teams move at all or flip flop if Stanford wins, so it doesnt help us. Rose is #4 v. #5, so a close game wont change much. And we beat #19, so it doesnt exactly give us a big jump

there wont be much movement from these games in the final polls. we may move up a spot or two at best

But we were actually 3 point underdogs, so the fact we won by 10 is impressive, or at least it should be in the eyes of the pollsters. If MSU beats Stanford even by one point, Stanford will have 3 losses, so do you not think they would fall below us in the polls?

Well, it looks like MSU is about to beat Stanford, so we're sure to move up a little bit unless the pollsters absolutely screw us. I'm now an even bigger UCF fan temporarily. Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to matter in that game.

We should pass Stanford after them losing in the Rose Bowl, right?

Stanford now has 3 losses. SoCar and Stan were the only top 10 teams with 2 losses, and they were ahead of us. So, yes, they should drop out of top 10 and we SHOULD bump up 1 spot. But, don't be surprised if we don't.

Honestly, I'd rather OSU win and end up behind them. Whether we finish 6-8 really doesn't matter. If UCF beats Baylor that helps us with the computers.

Default Re: Where do we finish in the polls?

Top 5 finish is possible if UCF beats Baylor and Clemson beats Ohio State.

South Carolina is 8 in AP. Will likely move past them to 7, then 5 if the two above scenarios happen.

If FSU and Bama win, you'd likely be looking at a Top 5 finish of:

1. FSU
2. Alabama
3. Michigan State
4. Auburn
5. South Carolina

Sort of sad, if a whole bunch of things happen, we are still the third ranked team in SEC. After a terrific last 7 games.
