Default Ranking?

So... beating the # team in the nation... Where do you guys think we will go?


Being 21st now, Unfortunately we wont get to the top 10. But I am hoping maybe the top 15..

I'd love to see 15th.

What will hurt us is that we did it in 2OT, so that may hurt our ranking a bit.


What do you all think?

Honestly, I'll be surprised if we're higher than about 17. I'm not one of the ones who believes there's a conspiracy against us, but I must admit it seems like other teams have been greatly rewarded for winning certain games this year and not getting "punished" for eeking out wins against inferior opponents while we have been punished and not rewarded for winning.

We haven't been impressive this year, other teams have. And even though Mizzou was #5, they weren't a "respected" #5...I doubt we'll jump anyone. That has less to do with peoples perception of us than it does with their perception of Missouri.

OT wont hurt us, since it was against the #5 team and a road game. I think we hit 14.

Knowing the nuttiness of the pollsters this year, wouldn't surprise me if SC dropped in the polls, for a "unconvincing win".

I have to admit I didn't understand why Clemson only dropped to #9 when they were pummeled by FSU while we dropped to #21 on a last second loss.
No, I don't think there is a conspiracy, but it seemed pretty stupid to me.



Looks like VT, UCLA, and Texas Tech lost above us (and obviously Mizzou) with Stanford and Fresno State not complete yet. So there was not a big shakeup in the top 25 this week.

That may not work to our favor, either.

Miami should be 21 or 22. They actually suck. climpsin is way overrated, drop their asses to 18 or 19.

It was typical Clemson luck that kept them in the top 10, remember that 4 other teams in the top 10 below them also lost. Had those teams won, cu would have dropped out of the top 10.

As much as I think both of them *ARE* overrated.. unfortunately they both won, albeit barely for Miami and just in the 4th quarter for Clemson, so they will continue to be overrated.

Maybe we should, but we won't, the pollsters won't jump anyone up 10 spots..

Just gotta TCB back at the Brice for the last 4 games, and we end up with a nice ranking. Who cares what it is tomorrow. Hopefully, it's good though. Pride, I suffer from it too.

Ranking is completely irrelevant right now. We aren't going to be playing for the National Title. It is all about getting to Atlanta. I want us to stay ranked just to keep our streak of consecutive weeks of being ranked alive, but other than that, really doesn't matter where. We will win out from here.

My bigger issue has been with us falling in the polls just because of close wins. Miami had to come from behind (10 points I think) to beat UNC last week, but they moved up. They came from behind again today to beat Wake Forest, but I bet they'll move up again. I kind of understand them moving up last week just because so many teams in the top ten lost, but I think it would be wrong for them to move up again this week for pulling out another squeaker.

I know that you are right.. and in all honestly, it would probably be better if we weren't ranked high cause that is a BIG target on your team, but you have to admit that it feels nice to tell people that hey, my gamecocks are ranked in the top 20 or top 15 or even top 10.
