As the AP rankings stand today. No Pre-Season ESPN hoopla bullshit! (See USC 2012)
Best Wins: No wins over Top 25
Loss to #11 team in the nation.
Best Wins: #8, #9, #13
Loss to #3 team in the nation
Just going off of actual on the field results, who should be ranked higher?
Obvious answer is Bama.
Team A. Clearly they have beaten teams so badly as to knock them completely out the top-25
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
I can go with that. Especially if Bama plays ND in the BCSNCG. See Sugar Bowl Circa 2007
You are consistent. I respect that my friend.
I think he means Oregon and Florida.
Depends. Which team has the better brand? What about mythical national titles from the World War I days?
Florida should be ranked higher
I would argue that Florida hasn't looked that good against some bad teams, but Tim Brown defended Notre Dame's close games against Purdue, Michigan, BYU, Pitt, and BC by saying that it showed mental toughness and that they could win close games. Of course he said Florida had no business in the top 10 as well for close games against subpar teams as well.
Maybe Florida is more mentally tough than Oregon is good.
USC ranked? You're consistently retarded homer, for sure
USC is 14th in the Sagarin predictor.
No, Oregon has no business up there with that extremely weak schedule and bad loss compared to other highly ranked teams. Also Stanford does not belong ahead of LSU or any other 2 loss team. Going off of W/L's and common opponent/s and all that jazz.
Your homer tendencies along with your Conference envy makes it hard to have a rational conversation with you. But I will keep trying.
I thought the Pac-12 only had 12 teams. How are yall 14th in conference?
I should note that I think FSU kills Fla this weekend. I just wanted to point out the always prevalent West Coast bias. To make sure a team is ranked high even though they do not deserve it.
They're unranked in the common sense predictor
bad loss? They lost in Overtime to a top-10 team.
Stanford lost on the road to UW, who is the ultimate jekyl and hyde team when comparing how they play at home to on the road, and they lost in overtime, on a controversial call on the road to the #1 ranked team.

actually are certainly a top-20 team by bookmakers. When money is on the line, all the bullshit is thrown aside.
so, would you put louisiana lafayette about #6 then?
Sure and put Pitt at #2 while you're at it.
Ohio St hasn't scored 60+ pts on a conference foe, or BCS conference member in over 10 seasons (probably longer, but I didn't want to guess)
...Until Nebraska this season.
I'll play along even though you'll backtrack on your usual arguments to spin something. You tout resumes, so how can you list Oregon over Bama? Both have the same record, both played 1FCS team, both lost to top 10 teams (Stanford 8, TAMU 9) at home by less than 1 score, yet:
Alabama has the better Non-Conference win in #19 Michigan. Oregon didn't even play a BCS school out of conference (which you love to bash)
Alabama has the better overall win in LSU who is #7, compared to Arizona at 24.
Alabama has the top two wins of either team, and both came away from home.
Just interested in hearing how Oregon has a better resume.
undefeated in regulation bro. Straight from Les Miles mouth.
Was Corky from "Life Goes On" not available for a quote?
narrative changes every year.
Sure, why not. Only losses are to ranked teams, and have a road win over a ranked team.
