My wife says that I am not good in math. Thanks. Also, five actually makes me feel better.
About right for us. Way too much love for the G5 schools from 17 - 24.
Baylor let us all down.
I agree with your comments, but thought I would point out that Etienne was ranked by Rivals as a 3-star coming out of high school. 24/7 had him ranked as a 4-star.
Good point. Swinneys staff found a good one! I think scouting for fit is key. Star ratings trigger some folks, but it’s just a probability rating with exceptions at both ends. You gotta have a handful of 5 stars at any given time though because not all of them work. Most great teams also have a diamond in the rough or two that out-perform their recruiting rating. Great coaches get the most of their top end talent, not just at individual performance, but within the team concept. I think Mullen has better potential at that than Smart. So, we don’t necessarily have to match Georgia’s recruiting in some kind of 5-star dick check, but there is a critical mass of 5-star performers required.
When is the last time we finished ahead of Bama in the poll, '08 probably?
Agreed. I'm guessing some voters didn't want 3 SEC teams and 0 PAC 12 teams in the top 5 so they jumped Oregon over us for no damn good reason. We didn't win an SEC or national title...we didn't even win the SEC East...but there is some cachet in claiming a "top 5" national finish and we don't get it because of some PAC 12 butthurt. Honestly, I don't even know if we beat Oregon on a neutral field, but we damn sure earned a higher final ranking than the Ducks. Alex.
Absolutely, Alex. They lost to Auburn, too. We didn't.
Sagarin has us @ 10.#34 SOS. Oregon is #6 #29 SOS. We're behind Bama, OU, PSU,and Wisconsin. Where we fell off was O wins vs top 10 and 1 vs top 30. The rest at worst had 3 top 30 wins. Oregon had 4. That could explain why they're ahead according to some College Football Ratings Page
Fvvk the pac 12 and their inflated rankings. If we had Oregon's schedule we'd be in the playoffs.
