The Oklahoma Sooners held on to their season-long No. 1 spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll, while the LSU Tigers kept the No. 1 ranking they earned from the Associated Press when the latest top 25 polls were released on Sunday. The Florida Gators (4-3, 2-3 SEC), fresh off three-straight losses including a 17-6 defeat by Auburn on Saturday, did not receive a single vote in either poll.

    Georgia’s ranked? the team who nearly pulled the biggest choke of all time, then started taunting and fighting VANDERBILT? Guess it goes to show it’s tough to find 25 decent teams.

    Well, right now we don’t look like a Div I school, either….

      This is our reality right now. I mean we were really and 8-4 team at the start of the season. Maybe we beat GA, maybe not. But look at SC right now, they just canned their maligned QB and lost their star running back. If JB comes back and a few people get their health back, we could do alright for the rest of the season. Next year will be much better, we have a very very young team. Just like in Urbans first year.

    Only place we can go is up …..

    I saw that Auburn game last year too. It was at home and Auburn was wearing Miis St.uniforms…..but it was our same team…except Weiss was dressed like Steve Addazzio then.

      lol Charlie Weis is doing the best he can with our personnel. the only real criticism is not running Gillislie more. The receivers have been open A LOT more this season than the last and I’ll give credit to the play calling. Freshman QB’s going against these SEC defenses? Yikes! That stuff might work in the Big 10 but not around these parts
