The voters for the AP top 25 football poll....

are 65 sports broadcasters and sports journalists. They comprise part of what we call the sports “media”. Collectively they have us ranked number 2 in the country. I have to shake my head when I read posts about how the “media” is not giving us any respect. Looking at you Topher.

As a whole, the media is giving us plenty of credit. We could earn even more respect if we began playing a little more crisply. Right now we look out of sorts.

If Alabama were defending champions ranked number one and they won a 1-point game where they looked sluggish, do you think the AP would drop them to second?

If they lost? Yes.

Ah, you changed it.
But if they won, it’s different because they are Alabama. And especially if it’s a sluggish one point win against a conference team. They would definitely stay #1.

If you think it’s not fair, win 37 national titles like they have and then see if you think it’s not fair.

You do mean 17 and not 37 right?

I'm not saying it is unfair, they can vote for whomever they want. But there is still a mindset among the media that if Clemson shows the slightest weakness that, oh yeah, they were never that good anyway. And if Clemson wins the Natty again this year to take 3 out of 4, next year it will still be the same.

According to several posts seen on Tnet

We shouldn't be in the top five. I'll give the media credit for respecting us more than some of our own.

a$$ by 42 points like everyone was predicting we would, then yes... they would have dropped bama and moved us from #2 to #1.

most are 1 or 2 though.
Our old buddy Jon Wilner has us at #1. Imagine that.
Rece Davis has us third.
