Default Chris Low's top 25

Chris low, who has one of the best fingers on the college football pulse usually picks the correct winner. In 2010 he was 8 for 9 picks in the SEC. I just saw this post in his blog:

http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/i...power-rankings

He is picking Clemson as the #2 team in the land. #2!
Wow, what does he see in them?

A joke of a schedule, so they will have at least 10 wins, without effort. Also they get 6 weeks between major games, so plenty of time to prepare for each game.

Default Re: Chris Low's top 25

they had a quality win, not too many teams were playing quality teams the opening weekend. i'd put clemson 1 or 2 after the first week. that certainly doesnt mean i expect them to be in the championship game which might be the case for chris low as well.

as the season goes along maybe that georgia win doesnt look as good as it does now. maybe clemson's defense will keep getting exposed and theyll have close games against bad teams. in which case theyll drop before they even get to the fsu game on oct 19th.

Default Re: Chris Low's top 25

I have no major problem with Chris having the tiggers at #2, the Cocks will have the opportunity to take of that on Nov. 30th. What I do have an issue with is LSU at #5!!! Now, if he had the Cocks at #4, I would have dismissed the ranking but I have a feeling that their ranking has more to do with him not wanting to admit that the Cocks are at least the second best team in the SEC!?!?!!

I guess if we beat UGA at home then the Cocks will jump to #1 in the country.

Quality win vs top 10 team and they are almost assured to go undefeated until late in the season. this way, he has almot the entire season to look right.

Default Re: Chris Low's top 25

The thing about polls that irks me is people who vote based upon how they envision a team finishing the season. That is not the question. The question is who are the Top 25 teams right now. That is the reason I can respect folks who put Clemson in their Top few teams, as much as I hate to see them rated above us. Heck, based upon what I saw this weekend, they appear to be a better team than Bama (which I highly doubt, but all I have to go on is week 1 performance).

When they don't give us the same kind of acknowledgement for beating UGA on the road, while not re-evaluating Clemson's ranking, because "maybe UGA just isn't that good," that's when I will get bent out of shape about it.

off the top of my head before looking at what happened in the other games, id vote us there. opening game 17 pt win over a team that won 8 games last year, and georgia would be the best quality road win for anyone.

The polls have no logic, but if it wants to gain any amount of respect. Here is this weeks games

Clemson vs SC State BCS vs FCS
Stanford vs San Jose St BCS vs FBS

If USC beats UGA by 2 scores, nothing Clemson or Stanford does should warrant them to stay ahead of USC.

A soft schedule.
Plus, they won 1 of their big 3 games.
They need to beat FSU and USC...and even if they lose to USC, they will still be highly ranked heading into the ACC title game (where I think they play Miami).
