    ...you fanboy cowards. We are better than ND, Clemson, Iowa, Cincy or tOSU.
    C'mon. Man up and vote the truth.

    I know it doesnt matter and we control our destiny.
    But recruits watch this stuff. It matters relatively speaaking.

    ...but alas, they will not.

    Halftime show of the Auburn game actually said the same. As you said won’t happen but absolutely should.

    I am surprised to see you appealing to the pollsters after a week 3 loss...recruits who are looking at UF know the deal

    Did I say that?

    Clemson cant score points.
    Ohio State can't score points.
    ND barely beat 0-3 FSU
    Cincy barely beat Indiana.

    It's just true. We are better than those guys.

    At the very least, UF shouldn't drop. If Penn State beats Auburn I'm fine seeing them move up further ahead of UF, but none of the other teams around us deserve to be any higher.

    We were criminally underrated to begin with... We're a top 10 ten right now, even after our loss... but not becasue we lost. There is a difference.

    I hope I'm wrong but it's pretty much guaranteed that we drop after this L.

    Anyone else plays #1 to the wire and it's a positive move in the polls, not so for us.

    I don't get the dislike for UF by the pollsters but it is undeniably there.

    One XP difference...shouldnt be a big disparity between them and us if someone uses their head. Honestly if this went to OT we win 90% of the time. They just got steamrolled the last 3 quarters.

    Dude. We missed a bunch of tackles In the first half. The announcers on TV said that “Alabama’s key players are better athletes than uFs best players.

    go back and look. We whiffed on at least 5 3rd down plays we gave up for first downs - guys in position but missing tackles.

    We did miss at least that many tackles, but the scheme put them in position this time

    Gary Danielson declaring our talent is inferior means nothing to me

    Polls never concern me until the last 3-4 games. IMO drop us so we feel disrespected and play hard. I worry about games like this because guys have a lot of emotions that carry through to the next week, usually not in a good way.

    We were 25rh for one quarter and top ten for three. Which averages out to who gives AF.
