Looks like LSU
The coaches poill came out today, and LSU is ranked No. 2. OU is third, Georgia fourth, Virginia Tech fifth and USC sixth. Not perfect, but give the coaches credit. They adjusted.
For five, maye six decades, voters have been robotic. Someone loses, move down. Someone wins, move up. Someone idle, no great change. But sometimes, poll voting requires a little study. Like when asking which SEC deserved to be ranked higher, Georgia or LSU? The recent love affair with Georgia was rooted in what, exactly? The Bulldogs’ victory over Florida, I suppose.
But to rank a conference champion below a team in the same conference that didn’t even win its division? Nonsense. Easy call. The voters lifted conference champions of leagues with title games ahead of other contenders. LSU, OU and V-Tech all are ahead of USC. All three teams won Saturday.
I don’t know that I would vote USC below Virginia Tech, but I like the sentiment of adjusting to events. Voters were faced with the prospect of lifting Georgia into the national title game when the Bulldogs didn’t even make the SEC title game. Nonsense, they said. Bully for them, I say.
