    We have lost to #6 and #10.

    We still have to play #14, #11, #15 and #5, plus possibly #1 if we do well.

    But that sky is falling haaaaaaaard.

    Agreed. And I don't think Miami will finish the year in the top 10. I wouldn't feel so bad if the first loss of the season were to LSU.

    I don't think you get ranked on having a good defense, or a good offense for that matter. You earn your ranking by wins and losses. We have 4 wins against lousy teams and 2 losses against ranked teams in which we were down 2 scores for the majority of the game.

    It's because of our overall reputation, no other reason. We were ranked going into the season, and we haven't lost enough games to fall out, considering other ranked teams have been losing, too. We haven't done anything to deserve being ranked, but that can be said about a number of teams on the list, including Louisville.

    We can score two field goals against a ranked team.

    No one giving Florida any credit for anything knows what they are talking about. Not coaches, not the AP and certainly not some Gator fans.
