  • Was hoping we would be in front of Oregon. We need to destroy UF.

  • Oregon's loss is much better than ours.

    We're 5th, just like I suspected. I figure the Harris will have us 5th, too. There's really ZERO point in even looking at the AP poll anymore.

    Beat UF and win the ACC CG and we move up to #3 (at the worst) and maybe higher if we look good doing it and/or Notre Dame/SEC CG winner loses prior to the SEC CG.

    Not sure we can rise higher than #3 or #4 in the BCS, though (if the above happens).
