Default Will we be ranked in the final AP Poll?

We did not receive any votes in the most recent AP Poll. However, with the bowl results in, for the most part, I think we have a reasonable shot to finish in the top 25. VaTech (22) and Washington State (21) should drop out of the top 25. Memphis (19) could as well. All three of these teams lost their bowl games. Of the teams ranked 26-30, the only bowl victor was NC State (26) (in case you forgot we beat them H2H and have the same record). We beat Michigan (30) in a game that should have been well watched by voters as they all seem to love Harbaugh (competition from the Peach Bowl notwithstanding).

I predict we will finish the season ranked 25th in the AP Poll. Thoughts?

Default Re: Will we be ranked in the final AP Poll?

Personally, I'd use the CFP poll instead of the AP poll, since it is the one that crowns the Champion.

NCS, for instance, was 24th in it.

It's going to be very close as to whether we get in or are just outside looking g in IMHO. I do think we will be ranked in next year's preseason poll.

The CFP does not re-rank after the bowls.

it will be 24 of 25 if so but it is hard to just leapfrog from no votes to being in the rankings

Default Re: Will we be ranked in the final AP Poll?

To be honest, I don't care. At this stage, if you're not ranked in the top 5-10 it's just
a number and an opinion. I'll take our 9 wins this year and look for improvements in some
areas where we Really need improvements starting almost immediately. Doesn't matter
if we're 9-4 at #28, or 9-4 at #22........... We're 9-4.

Default Re: Will we be ranked in the final AP Poll?

i think washington state's 3 wins over top 25 caliber teams should keep them ahead of us, but they did get blown out in their bowl game and in all 4 of their losses including vs a 5 win team and 7 win team. we should leap memphis. we should leap va tech, their best win all year was vs a 7 win team. we should leap nc state once again. best case scenario 23rd or 24th which is probably where we deserve to be.

problem is the voters probably dont put much thought into their final poll. so id expect nc state to remain ahead of us, washington st to remain ahead of us, then it comes down to likely us, army and fau for the final spot, my guess.

Default Re: Will we be ranked in the final AP Poll?

The announcers yesterday put things in a good perspective for us.

Two of our four losses were to CFP #1 Clemson and #3 UGA.

We're #2 in the SEC East behind CFP #3 and potential NC UGA and looked good against UGA.

I think we're in the final poll.

We have a legit claim to be the third best team in the best conference.

Ketucky, A&M, LSU and Auburn all lost their bowl games. Miss State won but we played in a better bowl vs. a better opponent.

If we are, it'll be no higher than 22. I'll be extremely happy if we are, but if we aren't it's not the end of the world. We're still 9-4.

If we aren't then I feel like we have a legitimate gripe since NCState is ranked and has the same record.
