The second regular season editions of the USA Today Coaches’ Poll and Associated Press Top 25 were released on Sunday with the Alabama Crimson Tide remaining the No. 1-ranked team in the country in both polls. Alabama received 58-of-62 first-place votes from the coaches and 57-of-60 first-place votes from the AP voters.

The Florida Gators (1-1), fresh off of a crushing 21-16 defeat by Miami on the road, fell 11 spots to No. 20 in the USA Today rankings and dropped six places to No. 18 in the AP top 25. Florida checked in with 410 points (-564) in the USA Today poll and 405 points (-470) in the AP rankings.

    Kinda surprised we’re not out of the poll altogether, except the defense shut down Miami and would have won the game if the O hadn’t kept giving them the ball back…

  2. Alex says:

    We shouldn’t even be ranked anymore.

  3. obgator says:

    Our Defense deserves to be in the top 10. Our Offense should be unranked.

  4. Alex says:

    Al Golden just called out Will Muschamp on the Joe Rose show this morning. He said that Florida has been “negative recruiting” against Miami.

  5. Uf_84 says:

    Agree with Alex. We’re not a top 25 team. As for Golden, he just took “Mustchoke” to school and put a dunce cap on his head. He can pretty much say anything he wants.

    Hey, look at all the trolls!
