CBS Sports ranking drops Clemson behind Alabama

Clemson is a consensus No. 1 in the traditional polls, but that isn't the case everywhere. CBS Sports's weekly 130-team ranking of the FBS moved Alabama slightl Read Update »

Ahh the SEC love. All that really matters is what happens on the field of play. Alabama LOST by 28 points to the Clemson Tigers but that means nothing now because Clemson is not in the SEC. This should be more motivation for the TIGERS ... as if they needed more incentive.

Fine with me. Wish the other polls would follow suit. Drop Clemson to 2 or 3. I want to play bamy in the finals again... that’s when Dabo and staff will leave no doubt- again!!!!

Go Tigers!!!!

It's just click bait, and a need to stir conversation. It all plays out in the end, and we can be thankful that Dabo does a great job teaching his players to block out the noise.

That's why the Clemson Pyramid only has Clemson, not the weekly opponent, on it. They know that they have to keep improving as the season goes on.

Do we have an advantage playing the ACC? Slight. Bama only has LSU as legit competition, Oklahoma has Texas, Ohio State? nah, the Big10 is a joke this year.

So we build depth with a very young team, and steadily improve to be ready for the playoff.

Right now, they can rank us anywhere they want. When it comes to the playoff? We'll be back on top.

Personally, I think OU and OSU look better than Bama, but my opinion, like CBS', doesn't mean squat right now.

Agreed on the Oklahoma and Ohio State comment. What happened to the Ohio State regression that was supposed to happen? And Jalen looks pretty accurate against Big XII defenses ... is there a stipulation that defenses MUST be bad in that conference?

OSU, like Clemson, plays in a "weak conference" though, so if it doesn't win by 30 every night out, it won't get consideration. I wouldn't mind them making the playoffs and us giving them another 31-0 treatment. That zero is looking more and more realistic as our defense, without all the hype of last year's d-line, could be an all-time great D in Tiger history.

Alabama looks very beatable, and if LSU can throw the ball deep like they did against Texas, that's their Achilles. Throw over the top and stop the run--don't turn the ball over yourself--and you can beat the Tide.

Only ones that matter are AP and Coaches now and then the Committee in about a month and a half. And actually, the only ranking that REALLY matters is the Playoff selection on 12/8. These other guys can rank and talk to themselves all they want.

I care, because it just confirms, once again, the bias that blatantly exists. Now, granted, I have no doubts that we will take care of anyone who challenges us, but the lack of respect we get is laughable, and the bias that gets a pass pissses me off.

who will be arguing that even with two losses, Bama is still one of the top four teams in the Nation and, therefore, should still be in the playoffs even if teams like Oklahoma, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Utah, and Clemson are all undefeated.

Thankfully the CFP Selection Committee sees right through the bul**hit.

Perfect reason that there is no margin for error for the Tigers. Maryland hung 63 on the Cuse and Clemson needs to score early and often against Charlotte.

Re: TNET: CBS Sports ranking drops Clemson behind Alabama

So what?

Locksley's guys had one great game against a decent team but will barely be bowl-eligible. Will that prove the strength of the B1G?

No, it will show the immaturity if a young team that cannot execute well enough in hostile environments, like at Temple on Sat. And it will also demonstrate the immaturity of a young coach who could have won that game by kicking FGs and playing D.

But credit MD's AD who schedules non-con road games. Saban hasn't done that in 9 years, because it raises the risk of losing considerably.

Let me get this straight, South Carolina stuffed Bama's run game and they failed to even rush for even 100 yards. Rico Dowdell (yeah, Rico Dowdell) alone rushed for 100+ against Bama's defense. Tua picked apart a terrible SCAR secondary which resulted in Bama's only real offense.

Alabama can't run, and can't stop the run. They pick up an unimpressive win at SCAR, the same team that lost to UNC on a neutral field. So a leaky bama defense and no running game makes CBS declare them the best team in College football?

How retarded can you be?

I'm not into conspiracies but let's look at the source, CBS. They pay millions to get the prime SEC game of the week so there could be just a hint of bias in their "rankings". All in all the CBS poll is the least of my worries and could care less. I mean you know something is up when they think Will Muschamp and South Carolina have some sort of vaunted defense. Heck South Carolina out rushed them but I guess critiquing them isn't in their nature.
