    I don't like that Stanford passed us after beating an FCS team, but it doesn't matter, since we play them in two weeks.

    i can't say that we'd beat any team ranked below us....

    maybe just rank the top 4-6 and throw the rest of us in a blender

    Does the AP have a stake in the Bama/TAMU game?

    It’s just what always happened. A Clemson fan and I were both saying this would happen, and what do you know it does.

    Can you make a case for why they should be ranked? A “good” loss to Clemson?

    Without looking up everyone's schedule, couldn't you say that about most teams from TCU down?

    Every team from them was already ranked minus BYU who just beat a top ten team and Boston College (same boat as AM), so again I ask who did they beat to move into the top 25?

    Lol A&M beats LA Monroe and jumps up to 21st just in time for a matchup with Bama. That God damn SEC bias is staggering.

    It's not who they beat, it's the fact 3 ranked teams lost and fell out. When somebody drops out somebody has to move in.

    In the week 3 poll A&M was 2nd in receiving votes, so ranked 27th (yes A&M actually went UP after their loss to Clemson)

    Bama hasn’t beat anyone either really. It won’t matter where aTm is ranked this early anyway because they’ll fall right out of the top 25 if they lose and it’ll have no bearing on Bama’s status since they are already # 1.

    C'mon Stan.
    There was 3 guarantees in life for SuCkS fans;
    Death , taxes, and their annual loss to Florida.

    You dont think it's possible that A&M looked better in that game than people thought?

    Oh I know, I’m just laughing because me and a Clemson fan literally were just saying this would happen. He said they’d be the team who almost lost to an unranked team and then they’ll be ranked playing you guys @I4CUTigers

    It’s no slight to Bama of course

    Are you justifying moving up in the rankings despite losing the game?

    aTm still has Miss St, Bama, USCe, LSU, & Auburn left on their schedule...this may be the best they do in the AP poll the rest of the season.

    Glad to see Clemson dropping. It won't change Dabos approach but we haven't looked great.

    I'm of the opinion early season polls should be extremely fluid and less based on preseason polls. If A&M had been ranked 12 going into the Clemson game they are probably ranked 15 following it. They would still be the same team. Forget what they were ranked going into the game. Did they or did they not look like at least a borderline top 25 team in that game?

    Don’t see you bitching about Michigan being ranked ahead of A&M after a worse loss to a worse team. Hmmm. Me thinks me see some Bama jealousy!

    It's not wise for Bama fans to poke at Ohio State's OOC schedule this year.

    Didn’t they start out ranked ahead of them?

    Nice try though

    And why would I give a shit where they’re ranked? Do we play them next week?

    JMO, but I think:

    5. OU: a little too high after beating Iowa St by only 10. #7 would have been better.
    6. LSU: move up to #5 to replace OU. Great road win. Team is improving.
    8. ND: drop to #11 or #12. 5 point home win against Vandy? That's not top 10.

    Some of you dudes get too worked up about rankings and talking heads. It's week 4. Nothing that happens now even matters

    Of course not, you just put them in your conference. B1G is trash this year except for the. Don't pretend it isnt.

    What are there, 35 plus undefeated teams right now? Yet there are teams with losses in the Top 25. It’s BS.

    Well, you damn sure seemed concerned that A&M is ranked and you don’t play them next week. Stupid logic.
