ACC squeezing in 3 teams in there at the end.
Doing the bare minimum to squeak in at the end is the ACC way
I didn't know I attended ACC for college
The ACC lives in the 20-30 range
Champions of “receiving votes!”
WE’RE RANKED AHEAD OF CLEMSON
SAME LET’S PARTY
Wake 🤝 State
Owning the ACC
NC State traveling to Winston Salem later this year for a college game day matchup. Obviously everyone had that penciled in for this year
I for one welcome our new North Carolina overlords.
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
There's always sicko shit going on in the ACC
But now its happening to Clemson, so us outsiders notice it.
All the AP voters have heads full of hair and are not frauds
Not true, some goon gave UNC a vote
And GT gets 0 smh
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.
ACC: A Chaotic Conference
ACC gang rise up.
Still shafted BC
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.
I have no idea what any of that means but I'm happy for you
A birthday is generally the date each year you celebrate one's birth
>I would have poured hot shrimp scampy juice on you and said get thee hence.
In some cultures, that's a courting ritual.
TOP 10 MATCHUP IN SOUTH BEND BABY
Hello #8 hawgs
Hawgs vs Dawgs is gonna be a good one
The 🌭 bowl
I’ve gotta say I’m super happy for Arkansas. A proud program mired in tragedy for so long, they really deserve some time in the Sun.
It was really the tail end of Bielema’s years and the Chad Morris years. We had a taste of the high life with Petrino until his mistress’s fiancé kicked his ass.
Oink Oink 🐷!!
Them hawgs is hell aint they
I *do* enjoy driving in my truck now that I think about it
Hogs take the west!
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.
And Michigan will be favored, so Harbaugh can’t drop to 0-13 as an underdog. Win-win.
Line opened with Wisconsin -4 lmao
I don't understand this line at all. Do they really think Wisconsin would be better on a neutral field?
Probably not, but Camp Randall is a beast of an atmosphere
Clemson still being ranked is a fucking joke. Preseason rankings are a hell of a drug.
_Penn State above Iowa_
dear fucking god we're gonna get Kinnick'd
As God intended. Assuming we survive maryland.
You'll get blasted by Maryland and then annihilate us in Kinnick. We'll destroy Maryland though later.
That’s a disturbingly accurate prediction.
Ahh, the Big Ten, how I love thee
Especially if we lay an egg in Maryland this weekend
Fuck I did not wanna go into kinnick ranked higher. Maybe we come out flat against Indiana next week and Iowa obliterates and they jump us back. A man can dream.
TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT HIGHEST RANKED ACC TEAM NC STATE
With Wake only 3 points behind. Should be a good matchup
The Wake/NC State game deciding the ACC champion for the year is not a reality I expected, but I welcome nonetheless!
If State goes to Charlotte, my wallet is gonna hurt considering I am going to UGA-GT game the week before.
When’s the last time Wake and State were ranked at the same time?
Picture it, Sicily, 1922.
September 7, 2003. Wake 20th, NC State 24th
That ranking would be old enough to legally vote. Perhaps even in the AP poll.
I am terrified of our week 10 matchup ._.
No arguments really. Clemson dropped like a rock. Also, rank UTSA Cowards.
We should be unranked tbh
Really. How do you lose half your games, including your only real challenges, and stay a top 25 team? That's ridiculous
P O L L I N E R T I A
Dabo heart problems when?
I find the AP Poll's lack of meep meep disturbing.
Illinois being trash has totally fucked us. Might need to be 6-0 or 7-0 to be ranked at this point, which is doable
UNRANK CLEMSON YOU COWARDS
You're only going to have to wait one more week.
Holy fuckin fuck. I didn't expect us to be number 8.
Same, I was expecting #12 at best
The poll was out before the r/CFB post??? But I wanted to complain about it not being out!
Poor BC. You guys deserved it over Clemson.
Hopefully we get another crack at the Top 25 against NC State as long as Clemson doesn't embarrass us
Y'all can beat Clemson tbh.
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
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
Holy shit top 4 Penn State? From 0-5 to top 4 in actually less than a year.
haven't had this much excitement and hope since 2017
I’m simply preparing myself to get hurt.
nah fuck that enjoy the ride
“That’s football, Suzyn.” - Kirk “Jon Sterling” Ferentz
This isn’t real. I don’t believe what I’m seeing.
If you told me a year ago that we would be ranked #4 and that we were being carried by our passing game, I would call you an idiot.
I can’t believe it’s largely the same team. I can’t wait for the book explaining how Franklin engineered this turn around.
In person off season.
That’s like what LSU did but in reverse.
idk if it's just me but there's definitely a special feeling about this team
With a historic recruiting class coming in. Good to be a navy colored cat.
Arkansas at 8? Clemson at 25? Penn state jumping Iowa and Oklahoma? BYU and Michigan in the top 15? Ole Miss sniffing the top 10? What is going on this season
EVERYHOG GET IN HERE!!!
What do I do with my hooves?
Have a very confusing noon next week
ARKANSAS TOP TEN
CLEMSON RANK 25
OHIO STATE 11
Imagine telling that to razorback fans when we got our ass handed to us in Fayetteville by Western Kentucky 2 years ago. I'd think you'd be on meth.
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
And Ty Storey, an Arkansas native and Arkansas player transferred out and eventually beat us in that game. FCM
So, we didn’t suffer to the lengths that y’all did. But can Auburn fans also jump on the FCM train?
FCM welcomes everyone. Except Chad Morris. FCM
Chad is welcome under the train.
Chad Morris is welcomed to go fuck himself.
I was on meth 2 years ago and I never had a thought this crazy.
Looks like Georgia is close enough to take #1 with a win over Arkansas
Were you there the week the writers acknowledged the existence of Oklahoma State University?
How the fuck is a 2-2 school still ranked, with two undefeated schools only ranked one and two spots above them?
I feel like everyone in this thread is using us as a measuring stick right now. That is not a good idea because we are not consistent at all. With that out of the way, TALK TO YOUR KIDS ABOUT NC STATE BEING RANKED ABOVE CLEMSON.
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.
I'm ready to be hurt again
DAMNIT THEY SHOULDVE RANKED MARYLAND NOW THEYRE PLAYING FOR A RANKING!
Going up in a bye week? Are we in the p5 now?
They misheard the news and thought y'all joined the Big 12 effective immediately.
*AP Poll suddenly drops Cincinnati 5 spots*
Only four votes for UTSA?
RANK THE ROADRUNNERS YOU COWARDS!
MEEP MEEP MOTHERFUCKERS
They beat a Big Ten team and an undefeated Memphis I honesty thought they’d by somewhere between 26-30.
Unfortunately I think Illinois is killing our Meep Meep vibes
Chad Morris was so immensely bad at his job
All my homies hate Chad Morris
In a year where a lot of teams look mortal, Arkansas has some really good wins. I think they definitely deserve it.
>Equally reasonable take: we're still on track for a Michigan Arkansas BYU Wake CFP
You son of a bitch, I'm in!
BYU and Wake likely won’t make it over an undefeated Oregon and baylor
Only one of Baylor and BYU can finish undefeated, so that's half the problem.
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.
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
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.
Definitely deserved. The Hogs look really good on both sides of the ball
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.
I don’t understand how OU is as high as they are when looking at the games they have played. https://i.imgur.com/ZMhZUQA.jpg
2014 FSU syndrome
Hanging on by a thread type beat
Lots of the top teams have played people close and not looked great
Nebraska the best 3 loss team in the country confirmed?
Oh shoot, they might lose to kstate
Ok, how the flip floppin frick frack did auburn move up after that shit show?
How the fuck do you still justify ranking Clemson?
Good guy AP voters giving BC a shot at a ranked opponent win
WE MOVED UP LMAO. ABOVE CLEMSON TOO LMAO
Of course we moved up we had an easy two possession win yesterday. Thats all nothing odd.
True. Even dominated special teams and had a shutout in the 2nd half.
Others receiving votes:
Texas 131, Maryland 91, San Diego State 57, Boston College 55, SMU 44, Kentucky 26, Iowa State 25, LSU 24, Arizona State 23, Virginia Tech 20, Wisconsin 13, Rutgers 6, Kansas State 5, UTSA 4, Oregon State 4, Louisville 3, North Carolina 1
VOTES!!! What a wonderful day!
I don't know what to do with my hands
Only 4 for my boys. Sad meep meeps.
4 vote solidarity, guess I'm a UTSA fan now
Rutgers needs more votes. We need less votes.
Rutgers is receiving votes. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
AP Poll Top 10 ranking:
4. Penn State

\#15 Texas A&M
\#16 Coastal Carolina
\#17 Michigan State
\#18 Fresno State
\#19 Oklahoma State

Edit: Reddit formatting is a bitch.
it’s cool that when teams beat other teams they get ranked above them
Looks confused at Georgia Tech
>1. Ohio State
> 2. Ole Miss
> 3. BYU
> 4. Michigan
I'll take it. See yall in the playoffs
Jim Harbaugh would sell his soul for a OSU-Michigan playoff rematch.
Bro what we’re 4 lol
Falling ass backwards into a top 4 spot because everyone else somehow looks slightly worse than us is so on brand
> 25. Clemson.
Holy shit is 9 to 25 the biggest drop ~~of all time?~~ alright 14 years then?
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.
No, Michigan dropped from top five to unranked in 2007
No. It isn’t.
I love how you got a bunch of responses and almost all of them are UM losing to App State
Guys, did Michigan drop from #5 all the way to unranked after losing to App State in 2007?
Asking for a friend.
Michigan went from 4th to having no votes after losing to App State in 2007.
IIRC Michigan fell from 5 to unranked after losing to App State in 07?
Tell your friends about Top 10 Arkansas!
Especially if your friends are recruits with more than 3 stars!
Don’t forget to mention the free Walmart for life name and likeness deal!
AP did texas a favor not ranking us going into the TCU game
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)
AP not cowards confirmed.
Shoulda unranked Clemson. That would have been truly courageous
Texas' resume is clearly better than Clemson's
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
I like us being just outside the top 25. We don't need that rat poison!
We got votes!!
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.
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)!
Arkansas ahead of Clemson, Ohio State and Texas A&M after four weeks. Just as we all predicted.
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
And cincy moving up after not playing, unlike last year
Wait for the Playoff committee rankings, then the G5 curse will continue
This is the best season in a long fuckin time
Edit: thanks for the award stranger!
was not expecting such a massive drop for Clemson. Poll inertia doesn't seem to matter as much this year so far
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.
We're the only team in Ohio in the top 10 right now
Texas deserved 8 more votes. Their only loss is on the road to a team now looking like the real deal.
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.
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?
You just need a bigger gun.
One player in particular was so rattled he lost his starting spot lol (Card)
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
HOW IS AUBURN 22 LMAOOOO
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
No no no we're too high! We can't go into Iowa ranked higher...
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
Talk to your kids about Coastal being the highest ranked team in South Carolina
