Good lord, no he’s not. Why would you not reward LSU for beating a top 10 team on the road? If we were in LSU’s shoes you would be screaming for us to be ranked even higher. They arguably have the best win of the short year. It has nothing to do with them being in the sec. Good grief you people just make up ways to make espn look biased.

We don't need to give espn any reasons to be biased

However, I do agree that lsu's win and ours are the 2 biggest out of 2 weeks, so far. That being said, it has only been 2 weeks and we really dont know how good anyone is. Rankings are pretty much counter productive and biased to traditional power schools... E.g. Michigan should even be in the top 25? Everyone thought U of T would be good and their season is already over.

Btw... We had better be prepared for UNC. Mack Brown is back in town

They shouldn't bother with rankings right now. Or maybe just have a "top 5" and a "next 5". There's literally no point - beyond to have something to argue over online - to having a rank when nobody has a resume yet. Yes, a couple of "bigger" games have been played, but with only 2 games each, there's no way to compare.

I think it’s pretty accurate so far

Clemson and Bama have taken care of business and not given any reason to be moved down. Ohio St’s 42-0 dismantling of Cincinnati was impressive. People were expecting that to be a closer game. And as someone said, LSU arguably has the best win on the road against a ranked opponent so far. Still not sure if Texas was overrated though and LSU seems to have turned into Oklahoma with no defense. Way too early for rankings to matter but I’ll take being #1!


Does make you wonder

if LSU has given up their defense for a much improved offense -- shocked me to find out they knew what a forward pass was ???????????? but their QB played a heck of a game ***
