GT did not get a single vote.
# 5 UGA could open 0 - 2. They open against #8 Clemson on the road and then take on #7 South Carolina next. And they have a few players sitting out a game or two.
Thanks. Sorry typing from phone.
#24 USC: 7-6 record.
Nice. Must definitely have been the wind.
I want this to happen but probably won't.
USC is the FSU of the West, I guess.

So, not even Jimbo, or his voting GA, gave us a top 25 vote. Let's hope we see them in Charlotte, farking bastages.
Stanford? #4? Them boys are somking the good ****
They only lost 2 games and won the Pac 12 and Rose Bowl this is a fair placing
USC's ranking is crazy 7-6 with a loss to GT in the Sun Bowl yet they ranked 24th and the Institute isn't ranked at all..
They are assured that USC wasn't taking the Sun bowl serious and could have easily beaten us if it was a bowl that mattered.
I am glad we did not receive any votes. I want a big chip on our shoulders.
AP poll is out. Six votes for GT, putting us at #38.
I like it. Like it a lot. We play much better with a chip on our shoulder with something to prove. We usually come out flat when the media likes us.
Do preseason polls even matter? Think about it, there are only 1 or 2 teams that would get in the big dance with a loss on their ledger. A one loss SEC champ and, maybe tOSU. One loss on our schedule = title hopes done. However, if we somehow run the table, there's no way a 1 loss team would jumps us. We would be ACC champs and have beaten Miami, VT, UNC, Clemson, BYU, Uga, and FSU (or Clemson, again). All of those teams have a chance to be ranked either when we play them or better, at the end.
Starting the season unranked helps build team unity and purpose: get RESPECT! In the words of CPJ: "I don't want anybody givin' us anything, I wanna take it!"
