4. Oklahoma

5. Oregon

6. Georgia

7. Florida State

8. Michigan

9. South Carolina

…LSU has a new QB who has never started, and who has hardly played much major college ball, and they are ranked #1? They must have some kind of D and some kind of running game…

#6… are you freaking kidding me??? UGAg will be lucky to go 8-4 this year. They are the 3rd best team in the SEC (L)east.

and LSU #1 ??? who came up with these rankings?? that bald headed jabroni Tim Brando ??

we all know ALABAMA is #1.

10-3; wait and see….maybe we will one day recruit some offensive lineman….remember 2003 and 2004; we were loaded with skill players, good defense, but when it mattered most, we could not run the football.

Nothing! The last three weeks of the season Georgia will not be in the top 15! Bet on it!

I’m glad Tech is not in this one.
Let VT think they are better until the battle fo the Techs starts.
GT basketball was racked number 1 one time preseason.
Nowhere to go but down.
That showed what is wrong with rankings because that team lacked the depth needed to stay there.
