All of the worrying and gnashing of teeth about rankings

is ridiculous. As others have stated:

-AP and Coaches Poll results don't really matter
-Opinions from television commentators, analysts, and "expert" don't really matter
-We stack up well against the other teams in the top 6 in strength of schedule, offensive stats, and defensive stats

We just need to keep winning and improving. Our playoff ranking will take care of itself. I honestly don't think an undefeated Clemson team on a 28-game winning streak with a conference championship will be ranked lower than #2.

Besides, fretting about this isn't going to change anything. Shouldn't we be worried about more important things, like orange overalls? ;)

Has anyone noticed that ever since a fellow Clemson alum started making fun of our orange overalls tradition and agricultural roots that the AP voters haven't taken us seriously? It's no coincidence that as soon as he started bashing our traditions we fell to #4 in the poll.

If pigs are so smart, why do 66% of them use weak and inferior materials during construction?

has led to voters down grading us in a poll??!!

I'm glad you're proud of that!

Maybe you should say a few positive things about our traditions to reverse this thing.

Since you started this "war" against orange overalls we have dropped in the polls two weeks in a row after beating our opponents 90 - 24. That looks somewhat factual.

Since your poast about orange overalls, it's clear sportswriters across the nation have taken note. If we win by 35 on Saturday, we will drop in the polls.

Because style points.

I agree Keller Judge. That's hype makers wanting better viewership when those other teams play head to head.
Besides - all the same folks have already been proven wrong emphatically by counting Clemson out. Seems more like they trying to avoid an A $* whooping really.


Consistency from the poll voters would be nice.

If previous years don't matter, which they shouldn't, why does Alabama always get the benefit of the doubt?

If strength of schedule matters, why are other teams getting credit for their performance against "weak" schedules and we aren't?

It's crazy.
