NC State at 23, Wake Forest at 24, Clemson at 25? The mad lads did it.

Some real sicko shit going on in the ACC right now, we love it

While there are a few biases pop up from week to week, I think the AP generally has been more constructive the past few years than prior. Notably in punishing underwhelming performances.

I remember sitting at the bar at Red Lobster on my birthday watching the hogs lose to auburn by over 40 points. If you would have told me we would be #8 in two years I would have poured hot shrimp scampy juice on you and said get thee hence.

AnonymousUser225

Oh, yeah. It’s all coming together. With Wisconsin unranked, if we win, Harbaugh won’t be able to improve his stat on beating ranked teams on the road. If he loses, he just lost to an unranked team.


ValarMorcoolis

And Michigan will be favored, so Harbaugh can’t drop to 0-13 as an underdog. Win-win.


cheerl231

Line opened with Wisconsin -4 lmao


FireDantonio

I don't understand this line at all. Do they really think Wisconsin would be better on a neutral field?

You'll get blasted by Maryland and then annihilate us in Kinnick. We'll destroy Maryland though later.

That’s a disturbingly accurate prediction.

If State goes to Charlotte, my wallet is gonna hurt considering I am going to UGA-GT game the week before.

That ranking would be old enough to legally vote. Perhaps even in the AP poll.

ChefTombert777

The poll was out before the r/CFB post??? But I wanted to complain about it not being out!


Bigdeacenergy

Poor BC. You guys deserved it over Clemson.


Yanns

Hopefully we get another crack at the Top 25 against NC State as long as Clemson doesn't embarrass us


efdmbo

Y'all can beat Clemson tbh.


Yanns

They definitely look beatable this year, I'd feel like we'd have a decent shot with a healthy Jurkovec but Grosel probably cannot make the reads fast enough against a Clemson defense that good


wildgoalie31

Feels like A&M is still over ranked until they can figure out the offense. Calzada panics too quickly and the O-line is weak. On the positive side they have a bye week to make some progress but without major improvements A&M is going to lose a lot of low scoring games


Bolanus_PSU

Holy shit top 4 Penn State? From 0-5 to top 4 in actually less than a year.

It’s the Chad Morris Phoenix rising story. You hire Chad Morris to burn your program and it guarantees your next coach will hit top 25 rankings in year 2. Ponies 🤝 Hogs

Maryland is in a great spot tbh. 91 votes. Second most votes left off the poll. Chip on our shoulder heading into a Friday Night Home game against #5 Iowa. Expectations not too high. Let's rock.

ethan_bruhhh

BYU and Wake likely won’t make it over an undefeated Oregon and baylor


FranchiseCA

Only one of Baylor and BYU can finish undefeated, so that's half the problem.


SullyBears

Arkansas will probably end up ranked in the Top 15 at the end of the year. Will be top 10 if they finish 10-2 with only losses to Georgia and Bama.


Captain_Nipples

Before the season, two of my Arkansas coworkers were talking about how they had a shot at 10-2. I thought that was very unlikely, but looks like they were right. Just gotta hope Jefferson and Burks are healthy


Autoimmunity

If that plays out and UGA and Bama both go to the playoffs, Arkansas has a legit chance of making the Sugar Bowl this year.


Banned_From_CFB

Definitely deserved. The Hogs look really good on both sides of the ball


tacofan92

Arkansas deserves its ranking given its resume. We are gonna find out how good they are this week. If they win, they are competing for the SEC and playoffs. If they lose close, they are competing still for the SEC and playoff. If they get blown out, they are still a top 15 team IMO.

Michigan went from 5 to unranked after the App State loss in 2007. IIRC that's the worst ever.

And in second place, a #8 Arkansas dropped out after losing to ULM in overtime in 2012.

AP did texas a favor not ranking us going into the TCU game


lclear84

In years past I knew our defense was good enough to carry our shitty offense against a much better Texas team than us. Unfortunately that’s not the case this year. Both Cal and SMU ran and threw all over us. The only way we win is Voodoo tbh (and Zach Evans)


cpast

AP not cowards confirmed.


cheerl231

Shoulda unranked Clemson. That would have been truly courageous


Dob-is-Hella-Rad

Texas' resume is clearly better than Clemson's


DirkNowitzkisWife

I thought I was crazy for thinking a 3-1 Texas with wins over a 3-0 tech and a ranked Louisiana with a loss to a top 10 team now is better than a 2-2 Clemson. Idk Guarantee we’ll be ranked if we beat TCU next week though. CFB won’t let UT be unranked for red River


TexasDonghorns

I like us being just outside the top 25. We don't need that rat poison!


leesinisopaf

We got votes!!


Swoah

I remember the first /r/CollegeBasketball Top 25 thread years ago where Rutgers got votes. Look at us now, got as high at #11 last season.


Zloggt

Accroding to the /r/CFB twitter, [this is the first time](https://twitter.com/RedditCFB/status/1442189519529209868) that Rutgers received AP Poll votes in **nearly seven years** (October 12, 2014)!


Drew-Killem

Arkansas ahead of Clemson, Ohio State and Texas A&M after four weeks. Just as we all predicted.


22eyedgargoyle

God damn, AP aren't fucking cowards. Clemson to 25 below Wake and NC State. Fresno still above UCLA, top 10 hogs and OSU out of the top 10. Based


Kirbymonic

And cincy moving up after not playing, unlike last year


FellKnight

Wait for the Playoff committee rankings, then the G5 curse will continue


jrich960608

This is the best season in a long fuckin time Edit: thanks for the award stranger!


JonnyStatic

was not expecting such a massive drop for Clemson. Poll inertia doesn't seem to matter as much this year so far


Bluemzv12

There’s not been a single game this year where they looked good. Georgia I guess cancels out because it was such a defensive slugfest so call that as much of a quality loss all you want. Otherwise, Clemson has not shown up whatsoever this season. They don’t deserve to be ranked right now.


JB92103

We're the only team in Ohio in the top 10 right now


Irehdna

Texas deserved 8 more votes. Their only loss is on the road to a team now looking like the real deal.


ZachMatthews

That might have been the toughest road environment a Texas team has faced in a decade too. You could tell the players were just bewildered by the rage in the crowd.


BrettEskin

Legit question for Texans - how do I kill the 70-76 thousand feral hogs that run on in to the stadium within 60 minutes where my small kids play?


Ludakrix

You just need a bigger gun.


BroiledGoose

One player in particular was so rattled he lost his starting spot lol (Card)


LordHudson30

I’m fine not being ranked. Beating up on tech shouldn’t move the needle. Now if we beat TCU we should slip in 20-25 range just in time for the RRS


BCNBammer

HOW IS AUBURN 22 LMAOOOO


Confecting

Why is Clemson ranked? L to Georgia and NC State, 6 point struggle win against Tech where they could have lost, and a win against SC state


NittanyOrange

No no no we're too high! We can't go into Iowa ranked higher...


pickle-doofenshmirtz

HOGS 8


EmoArbiter

Honestly Texas should have the 25 slot over Clemson. It's looking more like the Hogs are that good rather than Texas being bad I think we're too high still. Between OkSt and UCLA seems better for us imo. Our offense looked putrid yesterday
