Default Will We Drop?

I'm so glad we won....beats the heck out of losing. But let's face it....it was ugly. Does anyone else have the feeling we might drop in the polls this week?

Okie State had an impressive win at Texas, UCLA had a good win against Washington, and we barely survived a M.A.S.H. unit of a football team. We've dropped before...something tells me we may drop again.

Anyone else think so or am I being too conspiratorial about the voters and us?

No. We still have a chance to win the SEC East. The media will not let us drop so that they can protect their ratings for the SEC Championship game.

I think we'll be at #9 in the BCS.

Any other poll this year is meaningless.

I don't know but I'm tired of not being able to put away a decent opponent like we are SUPPOSED TO and surprise the fanbase once in awhile.

I'll take an ugly win over a loss all day long, but damn...I feel like I see other schools beat quality opponents pretty solidly and do it with action on the field. Seems like we always play to the potential of our opponent and just barely do enough to get a win.

Default Re: Will We Drop?

we were already behind oklahoma state in the coaches poll so we'll hold steady there. in the harris poll they were ahead of us too. in the ap we were ahead of them by 77 points so i think we'll hold there. in the bcs which the ap isnt apart of im guessing we'll still be ahead of oklahoma state because their computer ranking was terrible going into this week.

oklahoma state over texas was a solid win for them, but theyll have zero wins over currently ranked teams and a loss to a 4 win west virginia team. ucla's two losses are to stanford and oregon, but they lost both by 2 touchdowns and zero wins over currently ranked teams. on merit we should be ahead of both.

Well probably move up to #9 with that Stanford loss.

But still, for being one of the youngest teams in the nation, top 10 in the BCS is pretty damn good

We won't drop and it wasn't ugly. It was hard-nosed throwback football; the kind that the SEC used to be known for. I'll take the win and as many more just like it that we can get. Go Cocks!

The gators hav the top defense in the league. Both pass and rush. Vandy scored 31 due to defensive scores and interceptions were huge for them. Murphy would have been given free reign of the offense and would have used the full passing sets, but Skylar was very limited in what the UF coaches were trusting he was comfortable with. That translated into few opportunities for turnovers and hence, a very tight game. If they would have made the proper call on Shaq's TD catch we would have won 27-14. Probably we would have covered the spread.
