Honestly, so did I. They were one of those teams that I couldn't figure out what to do with, and I must've moved them around 10 times. Watching them all year if I had to make a blanket statement without knowing the state of the rest of the country there is no way I'd say they were the #6 team. But then I look at the teams I would be putting ahead of them and I just couldn't do it.
VT? They looked like they didn't even belong on the same field as LSU. There are blowouts and there are blowouts. LSU didn't just have a bunch of fluke plays, they were just flat-out that superior to VT and didn't look nearly as imposing against many of the other teams they've played. Kentucky? They're 7 point favorites on the road against Kentucky and I'm not that surprised about it. USC? Stanford and Arizona...nuff said on that front. I'm not going to go through them all but it's just a weird year. It's like everyone sucks. Ohio State? Every team in the top 25 would be undefeated with the schedule they've played so far, so I don't know why they're any higher than they were preseason because they certainly haven't looked good doing it. They haven't done a single thing thusfar that should make us think they're any better than we thought they were headed into the season.
Same thing with South Carolina (same as Florida that is). I've seen them quite a bit this year and thought they were way too inconsistent to be a top 5 team like everyone had them. But then I look around and who do I put in front of them? Everyone's inconsistent this year.
