    New polls are out

    http://espn.go.com/college-football/rankings

    Georgia drops to 6th in the AP and 5th in the USA Today.

    "A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."

    Interesting that they put Northern Illinois at #16. Being #16 or higher guaranteed them a spot in one of the BCS games. I saw a projection for them to play FSU in the Orange Bowl instead of Sugar. Looks like OU will go to the Cotton as of now.
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    It has to be the first time that the SEC has six of the top ten teams in the coaches poll. That's pretty amazing.

    Coach Saban is correct about the flaw in the system. Give them some cash, but let Georgia play in the BCS Bowl

    Re: New polls are out

    Bama is 76 pts behind ND, which means that 16 people voted Bama 3rd OR a few less voted them worse than 3rd --

    Was that an attempt to get UF in 2nd place? Ohio State is 122 pts behind Bama -- which is over 2 rankings worth of votes worse than us....but a tight cluster after that with OSU, UF, Oregon and UGA....

    I'm guessing a few of the AP voters moved UF and OSU ahead of Bama in their rankings maybe a couple had both of them ahead
    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    I liked the post game conference when Saban said his wife's sister said six out of ten is 60%!

    While I live literally 30 miles from Northern Illinois' campus and while I think it's awesome that a local team is being talked about with national powehouses.... there are SO many more well deserving teams to go to a BCS bowl. I mean Georgia deserves something better than the Cotton bowl. The best bowl game was played last night, Congrats to Northern Illinois and like CapstoneTider said, give them some money as they earned some BCS money by doing their part and winning their conference and being in the top 16...but in a BCS game we want to see teams like Oregon, Georgia, K-State not MAC Mid-majors. Would be like when Connecticut went to what was it? The Fiesta bowl or Orange bowl a couple years ago...Snoozefest and like only a few thousand of their fans made the trip.

    Saban, Richt, and Sumlin? Only people that would benefit from Alabama being #1 perhaps? I doubt that's who did, but it's a thought anyways

    I would say more likely that some PAC 12 homers have Oregon at 2. Good thing the AP poll is meaningless for the BCS.
