Default Prediction for ranking after last night's game?

Do you folks feel we'll slide in either (or both) of the polls this week after last night's game? I think we probably will, especially considering we were favored by three TDs and only won by one.

I think we will likely fall at least one spot in each because of the seemingly fragile nature of this team. I heard someone say last night that we're probably the worst 4-1 team ever. I don't know about that, but we're definitely struggling right now, and the pollsters will take that into consideration.

I don't think we are a Top 25 team at this point. Right now, I think we are sitting in the top 25 due to our inflated preseason ranking on the expected strong performance of our team.

So far, we have skimmed past the teams we were supposed to beatdown and lost the game that was our Big Boy game to decide our worth. That loss wouldn't have mattered much had we destroyed our opponents after, but we haven't.

If the polls weren't released until Week 6-8 each year (like they should), then I honestly couldn't see us being Top 25 on our body of work. I could care less about a 4-1 record. Ask Maryland how that works.

When are good teams going to start losing? I was hoping Stanford, Oklahoma, Georgia, LSU etc would lose last night but everyone around us just keeps on winning. It's frustrating

Cannot agree. There are 10 teams in the top 25 right now that would have very little chance of beating us at home. I certainly do not think we're top 15 material, but I do think we deserve to be in the top 25 discussion at 4-1 in the SEC.

I don't care about rankings personally, I care about wins. A "W" is a "W" and that's all that matters. Just keep winning and the rest will take care of itself. Stay focus on Arky.

Kentucky had a pretty good chance of beating us at home last night if a few things would have went there way.

So find me 10 teams in the Top 25 that are MUCH worse than Kentucky.

But Kentucky did not win. The only team that has beaten us is a VERY GOOD Georgia team. Vandy, UNC, and UK only made things interesting because we started pumping the brakes. UCF was interesting for a half, but we applied ourselves and got it done. There was never ANY doubt that we could win against every opponent except UGA. So even if you don't agree that we could handle ten teams out of the top 25, I think you would certainly agree that we could beat at least the likes of Arizona State, Northwestern, Fresno State, Maryland, Washington, Northern Illinois, and Nebraska. Also, there are no teams ranked #26-35 that we could not beat. We deserve to be in the top 25.

You are talking about chance...and Kentucky had a good chance last night. As would every other team in the Top 25 and quite a few outside of it.

We didn't pump the brakes...we ran out of gas, took a wrong turn, lost our map, whatever else you want to say- but it wasn't our plan, at least from Spurrier's mouth.

There surely isn't a team ranked #26-35 that we couldn't beat, you are right. However, everyone team ranked #26-35 could beat us as well on any given night from the way we are playing. That is the difference. Great teams beat the hell out of inferior opponents. We let them stick around and play down to their potential.

I'd take that. At least its an interesting matchup. The florida bowls vs big 10 teams look even more boring than usual.

So let's meet in the middle and say we're #20 in terms of talent, desire, and ability to beat an opponent in the top 35 teams in the country. Doesn't mean we can't lose, but we're in the top 25 in terms of chances to beat other teams. I do not think we're good enough for top 15 at THIS point. If we beat ARKY, UT, MIZZOO, UF, and Clemson then we're clearly top 5-10.
