The fact that Georgia was in the top 5 was really becoming aggravating though because they have nothing to earn that spot and they shouldn't have that spot when teams like Alabama, Notre Dame, and even UCLA have played as good, or tougher opponents and are still undefeated. Or in Notre Dame's case, had a much much tougher schedule so far and have gone through that stretch of games 4-1.
Huh? Bad examples for the most part. Notre Dame and UCLA have beaten ONE ranked team.....COMBINED. Georgia has also beaten 1 (ND has beaten 0, UCLA has beaten 1).
Georgia hasn't exactly played a gauntlet of a schedule yet, but let's get off this insane notion that Notre Dame and UCLA have had a tough road to get to where they're at, because they certainly have not.
It would be an absolute sham for a 1 loss team, with no wins over any ranked opponents, to be ranked ahead of an undefeated team that has actually beaten someone good.
Likewise, it would be an absolute sham for a team with the same record an easier schedule to be ranked over an undefeated team with a tougher one. Especially when you consider the team we're talking about here. Let me just make sure I've got this straight. We're talking about the same UCLA team that eeked out a last second victory against the god awful 1-4 Washington Huskies, right?
sec best conference in football
ACC is the best and Big 10 is better than SEC
I don't want this to come off too harsh, but I really cannot stand many big 10 fans because of the way they ALWAYS try to hype up their mediocre/lower caliber teams to make their conference come off better. I can't count on a dozen hands how many Big 10 fans assured me that both Michigan and Iowa would both finish top 5 this year.
It doesn't matter HOW bad the conference is (not saying they're bad this year, but with the major dissappointments of their top teams they're nowhere near the top), they always claim to be up at or near the top. At least Big 12 fans can accept their conference's mediocrity.
