FanPulse: Tigers Remain on Top!

The top 6 remained the same, but things get a little weird after that.

Y’all voted again, and once again the REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED, CHAMPIONS of NCAA FOOTBALL remain on top (note: I’m a Clemson grad).

The top 6 remain unchanged after everyone won (or didn’t play). UGA picked up a big win, but they don’t have any room to move up.

Speaking of UGA, Notre Dame drops from 7th to 11th after their loss in Athens and Auburn moves up a spot to 7th after their big win in College Station over Texas A&M. Wisconsin got a 5 spot boost to 8th after once again proving that Michigan is at it’s peak from January to August, but tends to struggle between August and January.

There was some more inconsequential, tasters choice shuffling, but we really need to address Texas A&M. The Aggies moved up a spot after losing to Auburn.

I checked, and y’all fell for the SEC bait as well. A&M is 2-2 with wins over Texas State and Lamar and losses to Clemson and Auburn. I get it, Clemson and Auburn are good, but at some point you have to win game, and A&M hasn’t done that this season.

Meanwhile, Kansas State is 3-0 with a road win over Mississippi State and have yet to crack the top 25. The Wildcats had a bye last week, but after they knock of the fighting mullets of Oklahoma St. this weekend, I expect to see them in the polls.

You guys pretty much nailed the National Poll. The only small difference is that Michigan and Michigan St. are swapped. Personally, I think they’re both trash and should be tossed into the Great Lakes. Other than that, you guys nailed it, just remember, next week, vote K-State early and often after they knock off Okie State in Stillwater.


The bye week gave your confidence a small nudge with the TCU embarrassment (uh, they lost to SMU Saturday) a little farther in the rear view. We’re going to need to knock of the boat rowers if we want to get back into the 90s.

Most Overrated

There was an extra question on the poll this week asking about the most overrated football programs in the Nation.

Michigan was #1 with a bullet, with 60.24% of voters thinking they are overrated. Florida, even after embarrassing Tennessee (yet again) came in 2nd with 14.98% of the votes. UCF was third at 9.38%.

As always, the correct answer for most overrated is always Indiana because at least 1 person still thinks they’re going to win 6 games. Until that person is found and eliminated, the Hoosiers will always be #1 in my book.
