LSU's results thus far: annihilation at the hands of Georgia and Florida, OT loss to Alabama, 7-point win over South Carolina, 5-point win over horribly-overrated-at-the-time Auburn, and filler. That's not a ranked team (well, at least not any year where the ACC and Big East aren't collectively #26-45 in random order).

I like OK State as the top ranked two-loss team by the way.

Fine to have Utah ranked behind the one-loss morass, but aren't OK State, Missouri Georgia and Ohio St kind of all the same? Why Utah behind three of them but ahead of Georgia?

Curious what caused the MSU drop; was Georgia barely surviving Kentucky or Pitt blowing out Louisville really that much more impressive than MSU throttling Purdue? (Yes, I know the final was only 14 points; that's because Purdue got the ball back with 9 minutes left and we didn't really care if they wanted to put together an 8-minute TD drive.) Or was it just a re-evaluation of prior results?

(Not that I really disagree with where they are; I'd probably drop Pitt a few spots since they have a bunch of decent wins but no really great ones, along with a pair of bad losses, but Georgia belongs ahead of MSU and I'm kind of shocked you had it the other way last week.)
