They also only played 11 games this year during the regular season, as much as that sucks due to unforeseen circumstances it is a reality!
Coaches Poll #10
AP Poll #10
Average of computer polls more then 10.
ESPN FPI 15 which is below Auburn and LSU and a 9-5 Stanford after the win.
Best they will finish in the College Playoff Poll is 8th behind Clemson, Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, Penn State, Wisconsin, tOSU. With Wisky, Bama/UGA as the only 1 lose teams ahead of them. Even in the BCS or pre BCS era they still wouldn't have a claim to the title. Being undefeated albeit a great feat isn't the only factor.
If UCF is going to say a #3 FSU team with zero injuries isn't a different game then the FSU team after that game, then an unranked Memphis after bowl season kills your claim to anything because they are the only 2 ranked teams you played all year (yes they are counting them twice, fair enough). Their only win against a top team was Auburn, congrats. It is about the grind week in and week out, and the teams in the SEC lower ranks albeit not on par to with the past are still better then
SEC West OOC 28-4 with loses to Troy (11-2), CAL, UCLA, and TCU on top of the regular season grind.
But who cares really
