Aaaand for the second week in a row, we get jumped in the AP by a team on bye week.

Seems to me like we have the glass ceiling located.

They dropped 9 SPOTS in AP. They're #11. Didn't see such a drop coming, hoo boy.

That post was pre-2 PM, so I was referring to the coaches poll.

I can appreciate that we are in a reasonable ranking and tbh I do think despite a shellacking, we are in the same conversation as Ohio State.

For the record, we started a QB for the first time in his career yesterday. We played a nobody ECU team, sure, but we had no problem benching a Heisman quality QB and still winning by 4 scores.

So sure, Florida and UCF might be of similar comparison in terms of quality. You can make whatever SOS argument you want. We played a pathetic team, and we handedly defeated them offensively and defensively. That’s what good teams do to bad teams.

What did we do to get jumped by a team that didn’t even play... I’m not sure.

That's more how I feel, I get the SoS argument, it's the team on bye jumping that pisses me off.

Finally, except the half serious joke came true.

Say what you want about a team passing us while they’re on bye and we play. That’s some bs, sure. But you can dig oh so deep to make argumentative points (UCF’s SoS rank may have dropped for playing ECU while Florida’s absolute SoS may have raised by virtue of former opponents winning and wallah, relatively you can make 3D chess).

But seriously, Ohio State’s Power 5 BYE was deemed, by the voters, better than our Group of 5 BYE.

Neither team played and Ohio State’s SoS went down after the team that dreamed it lost, meanwhile UCF’s SoS went up after Pitt knocked off a good team.

Whaddayado except keep winning?

Oh I’m mad but I’m not surprised.

Well. I’m a little surprised about Florida being ahead. That’s more than doubling down. That’s a middle finger, and my money says that bit was done intentionally.

Whatever. At this rate, we are playing for a right to sue if you ask me. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s not even like they’re faking the inclusion by putting us close but no cigar. They’re legit disregarding is as simply not in the conversation regardless of what we do - and ultimately what that’s saying is there is zero chance specific teams who do not belong to a non-ncaa sanctioned entity known as the “power 5” are eligible to play in an ncaa-wide event worth dozens of millions of dollars.

Still something worth playing for. Play to make change happen.

That's an interesting line of thought. Never considered that as an option.
