    Also LSU #13 at only 8-4 when Louisville was their only quality win. Auburn's only quality win was over LSU (barely) so their gross over-ratedness is sorta tied to one another. Louisville had a chance to knock-out both but let us down there.

    Auburn has 2 wins against teams with a winning record, a quality win against #13 LSU and a mediocre win against so-so 7-6 Arkansas. That's it. Period.

    Face it guys, outside ranking the top 10 or 15, very little analysis is done by the sports writers to fill out their ranking sheet. They revert to who should be good rather that who is good. That said, there is very little to separate teams outside the top 15 or so anyway. Barn gets the nod on conference division bias alone, nothing else. Same for LSwho.

    This is a good thing, imo.

    1. Lose JT
    2. Lose leading rusher
    3. Perceived lack of talent (5 yr averaged recruiting ranking #55)

    F--- it. We control our own destiny in the polls because we'll face a ranked team in week 1. Then we have two gimmes that follow. If we start out 3-0 (very possible, if not probable), I see us around 20 heading into week 4.

    The first, though meaningless, pre-season poll has already been released. Tech is nowhere to be found, and the mutts are number 14. Go figure. SMDH

    Just put it on the locker room board. More ammunition for the boys to think about as they get ready for spring.

    What does it really matter outside fans (us) egos?

    If we want to be in the playoff, we have win the conference and do it with only one loss. That doesn't change if we're ranking 25 or 65 to start the season.

    I'd much rather have the humongous shoulder chip all summer long.

    Even then, there's no guarantee. But it sure would help

    Bingo. And preseason ranking goes out the window if we don't beat the Vols. I like the way this sets up for us. Find a way to win the opener and build off that.

    There's no way they leave a 1-loss ACC champion out of the playoff. I don't care if it's Wake.
