    Not a great showing, but we should not have dropped. I dont get that.

    We have dropped in every poll since the season started. Style points do mean something after all. The first half probably was enough to drop us since the pollsters either seen enough or had fallen asleep.

    I'm surprised we didn't drop out of the top 25 the way things have gone. UGA loses and passes us to get the ball going and it's been downhill ever since. Shouldn't matter as long as we can continue to win with our schedule, though. The computers will love us again this year.

    Being ranked highly in the polls is cool but it really doesn't matter for us. Just beat LSU, Georgia, USCe, and FSU and presto top 3-5 or whatever.

    Did Michigan drop after struggling two weeks in a row against teams they should have easily handled?

    Only UF gets criticized for under-performing against lowly competition

    We still control our SEC destiny and if we were to win out we would probably finish top 4 with a decent chance of top 2 so I am not concerned about the polls.

    Doesn't matter, if we and the rest of the SEC take care of business, the computers will love us and the human voters will have to move us up.

    Yeah, but if it had been us, ESPN would've had a headline that reads "Florida Gators embarrass themselves, their families, and their country with a disgusting performance against the worst team ever"

    Most these pollsters don't watch every game, almost impossible to do. All they know is that we lost our starting QB for the year and are playing a back-up with virtually no game experience. The game or outcome had very little to do with this.

    Ah, the Florida persecution complex.

    Look, I watched ESPN after the ... what, Akron game? They used the word "embarrassing" plenty of times.

    In a game that wasn't as close as the final indicated. We handled Tennessee.

    But I agree that if we keep winning, Florida dropping this week won't matter.

    Yep...and they were saying it last night too. My point in the OP, was not that we get a worse deal than anyone else. I was pointing out that this isolated instance seems a bit odd to me.
