I think they've pretty much been interchangeable for years now, and if form holds it will be Alabama's turn to finish on top.

Clemson is the current MNC, and more importantly I think that GT and T&M are a better set of wins than Duke and NMSU. Hard to see flipping Bama ahead of Clemson.....yet. For me but clearly others see it differently. I guess that's why they are called polls.....lol

Having both New Mexico State and Western Carolina on the schedule is embarrassing. 

 

Do have A&M, LSU, Auburn. 

Schedule looks worse because Tennessee is down, as are Arkansas, and both Ole Miss, and Miss State.

The SEC is looking more and more like most P5s. A couple of really really good teams and then a bunch of not so much teams.

Duke being your best OOC game is pathetic.

Unless you're the ACC, and you have one really good team and a bunch of not so much. Or the Pac -12, where it's just a bunch of not so much.

 

(I actually like Utah this season, but because the conference sucks and they don't have a signature OOC game, they have no margin for error. Their only shot at the Playoff is to go 13-0)

Memo to Alabama: If you don't want to have midday kickoffs in the oppressive Alabama heat, schedule better non-conference opponents and you will get prime time game slots.

Deified-Dozen-2019-Week-2.jpg

 

https://www.baltimor...ll-week-2-poll/

 

The two big Deified Dozen head-to-head matchups this past week did not go well for the Lone Star State, as both Texas and Texas A&M lost to LSU and Clemson, respectively, and subsequently fell from our rankings. That vaulted Penn State and Utah into the Dozen for their first appearance of the season, tying for the 11th spot with 15 votes each. LSU's big win made them a big riser too, as they added 17 votes to move from #7 to #4. On the flip side, Michigan dropped four spots to #10 after needing overtime to complete an uninspiring win against Army....but Oklahoma had a similar storyline agains the Cadets last season, and still made the Playoff, so you never know.

 

Week 3 does not feature much in the way of tantalizing matchups. #1 Clemson's trip to Syracuse lost some luster when the Orange suffered a beatdown at Maryland to drop from the polls. The Battle of Pennsylvania doesn't figure to be too closely contested when 1-1 Pitt travels to #11 Penn State. South Carolina doesn't figure to be a threat when they host #2 Alabama with a freshman QB taking over after a season-ending injury to Jake Bentley. And speaking of crushing QB injuries, the best matchup and upset possibility took a hit when Kentucky lost Terry Wilson for the season and will have to face #9 Florida with a transfer from Troy (Sawyer Smith) as their starter.

I've resisted but I can no longer put Bama ahead of Clemson.

 

My full rank will be released tomorrow provided I am quasi-lucid after the Ravens' game

No movement for me either. While Clemson has the better resume, I think right now Alabama is just a shade better. That's mostly because Lawrence just hasn't looked up to form yet this season, while Tua has been outstanding.

Tua has looked outstanding. But so what. They have played Duke, South Carolina, and New Mexico State.  Those three teams stink. Now I think Alabama is good. Really good. But the next two weeks they play Southern Miss and Ole Miss. Two more lousy teams. So lets see how they do on the road at Texas A&M in three weeks.

Deified-Dozen-2019-Week-3.jpg

 

https://www.baltimor...ll-week-3-poll/

 

There was not much movement between Weeks 2 and 3, as most of the upsets involved teams ranked lower in various Top 25 polls. No one dropped out of our Dozen, and thus no new teams are in. In fact, our 1-8 teams are in the exact same order as last week. We did see Florida and Penn State drop a bit due to less-than-inspiring wins at home against lesser opponents. Michigan and Utah were the beneficiaries, inching up one and two spots, respectively.

 

Week 4 will feature several attractive matchups, the most anticipated being #3 Georgia hosting #8 Notre Dame. The result of the 2017 matchup between the two was a 1-point game, and many hope this will be just as close. If our rankings were a baker's dozen, we'd have two head-to-head matchups this week when #9 Michigan travels to Wisconsin, but the Badgers fell short a few votes of cracking our rankings. Still, it should be a very interesting game. #7 Auburn faces a big test when they go to College Station to face former Dozen member Texas A&M. Finally, if you are looking for some Friday night viewing, keep an eye on Utah as they head to LA to face USC. The formerly-ranked Trojans fell in OT to BYU, who Utah beat in Week 1, but this still figures to be the biggest test the Utes have faced so far in a season where they likely must go undefeated to make the College Football Playoff.
