So, we won, teams ahead of us lost, and we drop a spot. I hate polls.
Aggy in the top 10, sickening
If Alabama lost to a top 5 team, I can understand them going from 1 to 4. But come the fff on, they lost to a, at-the-time, #15 team. Bama should be bottom half of top ten.

We moved up a spot . . . we were 19 in the AP last week.
The BCS loves Texas so we should be 14/15 when the BCS rankings come out.
This is partially how the illusion of the $EC being dominant is intact. Every time a team loses, they barely drop and the team that won moves up. This always keeps 5-6 $EC teams in the top ten.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
Maybe we should let Vegas bookmakers rank teams. I see about 5 teams above us that I think we'd be favored in. Seems less biased than coaches voting.
Vegas doesn't pick winners. They set lines that get action on both sides. Big difference.
I have a question...if Texas wins out...would it screw itself out of the Cotton Bowl to play A&M or LSU? It would take KState out of the national title game...would this push down OU to the Cotton or would they also get an at Large? This would be messed up if true...cost everyone in the conference too. thanks in advance.
Agree. They're insufferable as it is. My point to them is that Alabama was suspect anyway. I don't think they beat a No. 1 team, but tell them that! The Tide's problem is that they lack an offense to play catch up. McCarron, even with that one bomb, is not that sharp of a passer. Aggy lost to FL and LSU - don't forget.

"Football doesn't build character. It eliminates the weak ones." DKR
Florida and LSU are both good teams.
I understand that. But by doing that, they're in essence picking the public's perception. Good enough for me.
"Don't know. Never had one"
-- D. Royal-Mack Brown how to coach a team after a losing season
I know they'll never do it, but I'm just sick of the bias. The past few years it's been an SEC bias. Before that it was BCS busters like Boise, Utah, and TCU - all teams that would be underdogs to a lot of the teams beneath them. The new 4 team playoff format will make it somewhat fairer but won't really do anything to eliminate the bias.
But they lost to an SEC team which is always much harder to do so its a quality loss.
