    Just in time for another road game Super Bowl. Hope we come to play tomorrow night, if so we could get to that 2 line by March.

    AP is garbage. FSU loses yet doesnt drop one place. Penn St. leapfrogs us while jumping up 4 spots. BS.

      Did you see how we played against vandy and ole miss? I’m counting us at 10 as a blessing. Don’t worry everything will work itself out if we take care of business. And if not, then we didn’t deserve to be there anyways.

      …yes. I saw that we won..what did you see?

      I saw us struggle to beat 2 teams at the bottom of our league. Winning isn’t the only thing that goes into consideration. Fla St. lost on a bogus call at duke. What did we do worth moving up? Beating a quad 3 team doesn’t really do anything for you. Now if we win against LSU this week and don’t move up then you have an argument.

      Your gripe should be with Joey brackets who has us 16th

      sure, we didn’t play great but we won. FL state lost to Duke and squeaked one out over Syracuse (who is about the equivalent to Ole Miss)

      The same Florida state team with a better record and a better resume than us? Like I said, we just have to keep winning and we will move up. It’s ok not to be up higher right now.

    Cokely is spot on. We played like garbage last week.. very fortunate to win either game

      Oh. But we did…Vandy and Ole Miss are in the lower tier but Vandy beat LSU,there. They couldn’t beat us with their best shot. Ole Miss played very well and we overcame that as well..they’re a good team
