I didn’t get to see the game but UGA should have dominated ND. I’m not dropping them but I’m not elevating them either.

They should've done to 7th ranked ND what Alabama did to Southern Miss?

I get your point, but in an early season tilt when you're still getting your bearings, they beat a top 10 team and at times dominated them, even if the score didn't reflect that.

And you're underrating ND. They'll beat Michigan. This may be their only loss.

Who cares if they beat Michigan? They suck.

UGa is way more talented than ND. They should have handled them fairly easily.

By Team Composite, Georgia has the 3rd most talented team per recruits...   Notre Dame no slouch at 14. 

 

Of course development, coaching, fit, scheme, etc also matter.

They won and like I said, IMO it was more convincing than the score indicates. Meanwhile, Alabama continues to play no one. They should be penalized for that.

With UCF's loss today, your Broncos have a clear path to a New Years bowl.

Yes totally in our hands now. Still a long ways to go. We have two tough road games (BYU and Utah State) and the conference championship. But if the stars align I'll be at the Cotton Bowl!!!!

 

I do wish they would eliminate the requirement that the NY6 bid goes to the highest ranked G5 conference champion. There is no requirement that the playoff teams are conference champions and neither should there be for the G5 bid.

Well Clemson isn’t playing anyone either.

Bama’s tough games will be coming.

They are easily one of the best teams in the country although they have lost some key guys due to injury lately.

I expect Alabama to be 1 or 2, but they need to earn it first for me. Right now, Georgia deserves to be higher.

Clemson did play Texas A&M. They also played GT, Syracuse, and Charlotte.

 

Alabama has played Duke, NM State, South Carolina and Southern Miss.

 

Neither one of those schedules so far is very good but Clemson's is way better than Bama's IMO.

Sure but both schedules are total shit and Bamas will be better by the end of the year.

Totally agree but the poll is about where a team sits today not based upon their future schedule and expected results.

Sure and some of that is judging talent and quality of team.

Doesn’t matter who they have played in that Regards.

I do t have an issue putting them third though.

UGa is very talented too.

Yeah it was a tough one but in the end I just think Georgia has the best W of the top three. Not enough to get them over Clemson but enough for me to put them ahead of Bama.

If you guys want to get a kick out of voting take a look at the actual votes of the AP. Its pretty hilarious to see how some voters are so way over the top homers. Its actually sad they some of those idiots get a vote. Here's a matrix of the votes each team got.

 

https://i.imgur.com/mWdJ7QH.png

 

Here's a chart showing which writers voted. Pay attention to the affiliation column. As en example look at the votes from Don Williams (writer #34). He has BSU not in his top 25 yet he has 6, yes 6 count em Big 12 teams ranked.
