Fuck the Coaches Poll.

Second, #8 isn't bad.  But WTF is FSU still doing at #9?  They should have dropped further.

I'd be nice if Florida could get their shit together and stay in the top 25.  They're barely hanging on @ 24.

Block I think the game vs Alabama looked about even.  FSU was robbed on a pass interference call in the endzone.  If that was called correctly, it would have been 14-7 FSU and the game may have gone much differently.

Agree here. I hate that Alabama is as good as they are, but they are the standard. Really good teams can lose and lose convincingly to them. FSU was nearly their equal for much of the game before things started going wrong... but against whom will that not be the case?

Maybe OSU can hang with them. Clemson still, maybe. Penn State? Auburn? USC? Oklahoma? They'd get crushed.

BTW I don't think we'd look great against them this year, either. But next year will be a different story and I think we'll get a chance to find out.

Have to love that teams that beat serious challengers (UM, VT, Ok St, MD, maybe LSU) are ranked below teams that have (thus far) only proven that they can blowout teams so far beneath them that no significant conclusions can be drawn (PSU, Clem, OK, Wash, Wisc).
