    Don’t know how UCF is stil below Louisville in the USA and Harris polls as UCF beat Louisville 38-35 and followed that win with a dismantling of UConn 62-17.

      agreed! If the head to head game result isn’t the top indicator of rankings, then what’s the point? Also, Miami was smashed by FSU. I don’t care how good your opponent is shown to be, but if you lose that game by 27 points, you deserve to drop a little further.

      What Dee and Chandler are saying is that common sense should be prohibited. For example should Wake forest pull off an unlikely upset of FSU this week, they have to be ranked higher; even though everyone knows FSU would win that game 98 times out of 100.

      Totally agree…. This is why the polls are BS.

    I love having 7 undefeated teams in 7 different conferences. Just wish the playoff system was in play this year. Although, if it were, there would still be deserving teams left out (assuming for a moment that they all remained undefeated of course). I so wish it were an 8 team playoff. Some day…

      For all the reasons yor mentioned, the present plan won’t last long. Just one more round would solve the problems and result in every team starting the season playing for a championship which would be decided on the field. That would make for a nice change.
