Better than eating crow, put that $100 to a great charity!
Great call here!! I guess I am not as knowledgeable as you as to "how the polls work".
That did not age well.
Almost dead on although we didn't get that 6 seed.
I went on the thread and said I'll eat my crow. You were right.
I offered to bet you. For some reason, I must have missed your PM accepting. Can you send me a copy??
Georgia loses back to back 2 years in a row....wouldnt it be glorious. All off season to be exposed.
There was no wager. Just saying that would be a great place for $100.
That's what I thought. Just wanted to confirm.
We've opened as 14.5 point favorites.
What's our ranking this week?
Don't get me wrong, I believe you. I just want to know more about how this happened.
Not sure what you are referring to. Alabama stayed ahead in CFP rankings and Auburn stayed ahead inAP and Coaches, status quo. I agree with AP and not CFP. Nothing changed about my postvover the re-ranking.
I don't remember all the details, but there was a merch salesman in Gainesville who's daughter went to UVA, and he got the idea to sell their Orange and Blue pennants back in Gainesville and slap a Gator on them. The other "common" story is that our colors were a merger of the two mother institutions that made UF, but so much from that era of college sports is apocryphal.
You said, "Head to head never guarantees a higher ranking. See Auburn and Alabama. Two very bad losses should not allow them to be ahead of Florida or Alabama."
I thought this was your response to why Georgia should not be ahead of Florida and Alabama.
Well, that wasn't exactly.what I meant. Essentially you are at the whim of the voters even if you have a hth win. It is a factor but not conclusive. Wisky over UF is an example of whim even with more losses and bad losses.
