The ninth editions of the 2011-12 regular season USA Today/ESPN and Associated Press Top 25 Polls were released on Monday, and the Syracuse Orange maintained their spot as the No. 1 team in the country for the fifth week in a row.

The Florida Gators fell to No. 19 in both polls on the heels of a victory at home against UAB and loss on the road at Tennessee. Florida is one of three Southeastern Conference teams listed in the respective rankings.

    They should be dropped out of the top 25 all together for losing to that Tenn team, still not winning ONE road game all season and the lack of desire/effort they continue to show on the road!
