No. USC should still be number 1.
The notion that Florida and USC should be ranked the same is ridiculous considering Florida has beaten everyone they have played and USC lost to the same Stanford team that later lost to Washington
Wait til after the season and the USC fans boast they certainly would have won the championship, if only they didn't lose a game(s).
Well when you lose one game in three seasons and get by passed for another one loss team in the championship game it wears on you.
One year was a total fix (2003) the next two were arguable but still showed a definite SEC bias in the polls.
Auburn played a bunch of monkey teams to go undefeated in 2004 and they're still whining about being bypassed for two undefeated teams with a real sos. It always works this way when you are the perceived wronged party.
Looks like another perfect day.
It won't be long until USC drops another game they should win and we won't have to hear from them until The polls overvalues them next Pre-season.

Auburn played at least 5 teams that won 9 games or more in 2004. I am guessing that is more than USC plays in almost any year.

Everyone talks trash about SEC offenses. Okay try to slow down Alabama (michigan didn't) try to slow down Tennessee (NC State didn't and held FSU under 20). Try to slow down South Carolina, Try to slow down Missouri... Oh wait once they came to the SEC they were slown down ... big time hahaha the defenses in the league are THAT good. don't hate on the SEC cause they really are the best overall conference. USC was ranked #1 to start the season and they were obviously overrated so shouldn't we be the ones complaining about how you guys are the ones that are overrated??
Yes, SEC teams that get 4 of those wins for playing monkey teams. Then they beat the bottom feeders in the conference for three more wins and divvy up the two wins by beating themselves round robin. Until recently no Pac teams have scheduled in the "SEC" fashion so this has been very tough to do.
Your post just proves out the SEC system.
This argument has no merit, because Pac 12 teams outside of USC have never accomplished much outside their own conference. Oregon has had two opportunities to show the SEC was overrated against Auburn and LSU in recent years and they got slapped down in both games
Did not read
Name all 5.
Those numbers don't mean anything. They don't show which conference is better top to bottom and they don't even show which conference has better top teams.
Florida State won the BCS national title by 17 points, Oklahoma by 11, Miami by 23, and USC by 39.
Of the 5 BCS games decided by single digits, 3 of them involved SEC teams.
4 out of 14 = "almost half" in the same way that you = "almost intelligent."
In general, I do agree with the article. Frankly, I hate preseason rankings and I think they actually hurt the game of college football. Mostly because voters are resistant to change from what they initially thought.
At the same time...teams outside the SEC had their chances. Oregon really put up a stinker against Auburn. Horrible coaching, IMO. Oregon would have been much better off if they tried early on to get Fairley to jump offsides, gain 5 yards and throw him off by half a second, as he was the one who wreaked havoc on the Ducks most of the time. OSU was terrible in their games. Texas...hard to blame them with McCoy out. Thought they did well having a true freshman thrown into the game, and would have liked to see the outcome with McCoy playing.
Until another team wins the MNC, this will continue unfortunately.
4 different teams in the last 6, but 5 overall out of 12 teams. Counting 14 in the SEC when we haven't completed a full season with 14 is dishonest.
Yes a FG win as time expires is a real "slap down".
Other than that this has nothing to do with my post about how SEC teams can almost always win 9-10 games with a decent but not great team.
I agree that espn has a Sec bias, but, if you win all of your games you're going to the natty.....

No, the LSU team that skull fricked Washington out of the stadium.
You know the same Washington team that beat Stanford. The same Stanford team that took USCw to the woodshed.
That LSU team.
How are u including Colorado and Utah when they did not play in your conference at the time? Way to slant the numbers to fit what u want.
So now the SEC team didn't win big enough? My God yall are some slanting mofos.
Face it, if you win you are in. Problem is yall don't win. PLAIN AND SIMPLE ...
The same LSU team that was bent over by UF?
So by your extrapolation UF should beat USC by 50.
That "who beat who beat who" crap doesn't fly.
There is too much anger to try and reason with the USC fans. As each day.passes and the spotlight is not on them the anger just increases. I predict a total implosion of USC fan-dom if they drop another game.
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
So much anger. Might wanna see a therapist to deal with it all.
Jessie Palmer or David Pollack during the USC/Utah game this past Thursday...hard for to differentiate between the two SEC shills said the P12 conference is the BEST conference from top to bottom...I know SEC fan is not going to like to hear that, but it's the truth.
