How is Virginia not ranked?

[8]
Posted: Sep 3, 2019 1:07 PM
 

They had a good season last year and are projected to win Coastal this year. They have the second best rated QB in ACC and a 1st team all american CB. There are a bunch of garbage teams in later half of top 25 that have no legitimate argument to be in over Virginia other than just an ACC stinks bias.


There shouldn't be any rankings until at least week 3

How is a Nebraska team that was 4-8 last year ranked in the top 25?

Preseason is all about fanbase + media + legacy. I am sure there might have been a few folks pushing Tennessee to be ranked preseason.

Nebraska has the "we bak" hype with a hot second season coach and a decent legacy.

Virginia is.... ummm, well Virginia. "Ranked" and "Virginia" is nearly comical.

The Hoos are pretty durn good.

Brice Perkins reminds me so much of Deshaun Watson it's kind of scary. He doesn't have the skill at WR that Deshaun had but they're not terrible, and they're pretty rugged up front. They also have an extremely salty D.

On top of which...Bronco Mendenhall. Extremely underrated, but the film junkies know who he is. Every film geek I've ever talked to likes to rave about Bronco Mendenhall, definitely one of the more respected X's and O's football brains in the game.

“Brice Perkins reminds me so much of Deshaun Watson it's kind of scary.”

Lol. For such a self proclaimed football expert you sure say some crazy stuff. Bryce Perkins couldn’t hold DWs jock on his best day. He will never play a down in the nfl, much less be a first rounder. He probably won’t even be drafted. He’s not even a great passer in college. He’s a great athlete. That’s the only way he resembles DW in the slightest bit.

Think Kentucky’s qb when you see Perkins. Not an elite, generational talent like Deshaun Watson. Lol.


Jake Bentley would agree. Mendenhal shut him down***

How was Oregon ranked #11? They were 9-4 last year and finished the season unranked. Must have been an amazing summer in Oregon.
How was Auburn ranked #16? They started last year at #9, went 8-5, finished unranked and lost their SR QB.....and now they’re top 15? Another incredible summer camp? It’s complete hogwash. Propped up with more hogwash and pandered to by yes men that receive paychecks from hogwash incorporated.

Sounds right!

I like that freshman QB at UNC. If he keeps developing he will be a force.

Agreed. However, Mr. Brice is the 2nd best QB in the ACC.


Teams that stink for awhile have to prove themselves longer.***

Don't you need to actually beat a ranked team to get ranked higher?

JK - I get your point and feel your pain, but their only win over a ranked team (BSU #22 in 2017) is probably not worth discussing. They played NO RANKED TEAMS in 2018. NONE.


Re: How is Virginia not ranked?

Oh I forgot. They play NO RANKED TEAMS this year either.

If you continue to do this long enough, at some point you had better go undefeated just to get mentioned (see UCF in previous years).

They went 8-5 last year with no notable wins over any good teams. The division they’re favored to win this year was won last year by a team that finished with a 7-7 record. I’m not saying they’re aren’t teams that get ranked that don’t seem to deserve it(Nebraska) but I fail to see any reason to be upset over Virginia not being in there yet.

Too many unworthy SEC mouth breathers sucking up top 25 spots for teams that can actually beat Power 5 competition.


Serious question ... did Tennessee get any votes ?***

Sounds like something he would say

You are correct! Virginia should be ranked!


Posted: Sep 3, 2019 6:42 PM
 

I believe they will win the Coastal and play is in charlotte!


Re: How is Virginia not ranked?

There is a reason they are called white meat. A whole lot of bad history to overcome to get into those rankings.

Perception!

If UVA was say FSU or Miami and had a really good OL and a RG3 like QB(in terms of making plays) plus two corners widely even among SEC folks considered two of the best in the country on the same team; plus Bronco Mendenhall(hard nosed coach) UVA would be ranked.

But, those glory days voters who remember VT and beamer ball and the "U" in the 80's and early 90's and FSU and Bowden/Fisher Criminoles, won't go for a UVA, Cuse, Nancy St, Wake, BC, etc. They will use every excuse known to human kind to not include them.

I kind of believe this: THEY DON'T WANT TO GIVE CLEMSON ROOM FOR ERROR! In the event we drop a game; I don't think it would be good for CU to have a bunch of ranked opponents raising it's strength of schedule. For those who want to keep us out. They can at that point say, "look at their schedule if they couldn't navigate it that's their problem"! One would argue last years Bama team was not properly prepared by all the bloated ranked teams they fed off all last year!
Perception had those teams ranked so high and gave Bama a false sense of security!

No team should be ranked until after at least 4 games anyway!


They need a couple of more wins..


Posted: Sep 3, 2019 8:21 PM
 

to build some more taken seriously enough. Then they'll be ranked.
