    Inside your head.
    I think it has something to do with the fact that the voters pay more attention to the top fifteen or so teams as compared to the rest of the field. In addition a programs current reputation and performance history has a bearing in the minds of the voters. Notre Dame is a good example. I contend that they are often rated higher than they should be just based on their football history and tradition.

    No one will bother with the AP poll or the Coach's once the first CFP poll is released which is right after the Florida-Georgia game is finished. By then, everyone will know who the real contenders are or are not.

    Week 10 is when the first CFP ranking is released!
    Last year, UF was 6-2 and ranked #11.

    The Florida/Miami game will be viewed in a much different light in December when Miami has a 9 or 10 win season.

    I thought our initial ranking was generous to begin with.

    I agree - Miami’s defense will keep them in a lot of games. This win will be a quality win at the end of the season.

    Michigan had a generous ranking, given our Bowl game dominance. That was just two games ago.

    I agree 100%, especially considering that the Michigan team that lost to Florida is essentially the same team playing in 2019. They only have three true freshmen on the second team depth chart.
