    You have to go back a few years with the Big Ten ... I was actually referring to when Ohio State and TTUN were in different divisions ... They played every year.
    I didn't know that Georgia wasn't a Bama rival.

    My Bad ...
    It wasn't Saban that was doing the complaining .... however when you post an article and Saban is the picture on the page, you forget that hes not the one talking.

    Alabama not happy with start time due to heat

    A recent common misconception, considering they have played a good bit of late, but notice that’s all postseason.

    Beating Texas at Texas is more than just a "bit better" than Cincinnati at home.

    Just like when Alabama & Florida kept meeting in Atlanta for a few years. Those two were never considered rivals either.

    Here's a thought, could LSU just give them rings of seats in the highest rows instead of whole sections? :devilish

    Maybe a step, but not a Huge one.

    Cincy is MUCH better than most of you think and you all bought into that "Texas is Back" campaign.

    1(Coaches)-2(AP) spots isn't a huge step.
    And your buying into the campaign that Ohio State should be on the top as well.

    I see no difference here, other than LSU beat a power 5 team on the road, and Ohio St. hasn't.

    So who has the better resume so far?

    Not taking anything away from OSU but Cincy beating UCLA isn't exactly a statement. They also got beat by the Aztecs.
    My thinking it's too early to rank teams, I like to see at least 2 quality wins and you don't really know until more games are played. Example Texas could drop a couple more games so the LSU win over Texas doesn't mean much. Ranking are worthless this time of year except for unfair positioning for playoffs, and the big-name schools always get this advantage.

    I agree, that's why I like how the CFP and the old BCS/Harris poll waited over half the season was over with.

    I have Not said I think the Buckeyes should be on top .... at all.
    Its too early for that.

    So, do we know how good or bad Texas is ?
    LSU is getting a ton of credit for beating them.

    Remember, I'm not against LSU at all .... you've got my Buckeyes back up QB down there ... and he's playing well.

    It's no surprise that Burrow didn't beat out Haskins last year ...
    However, I'm disappointed that he didn't stick around and try to win the job this year ...
    Buckeyes wouldn't have gone after Fields had they had Joe still.

    You are right about the ranking ... they don't mean squat ....
    However, they are doing what they are suppose to do ... we are all talking about them.

    You like to see two quailty games ?
    No one has played 2 quality teams yet, thats hard to do this early ...
    Some don't play more than 2 quality opponents all year.

    I love the polls. It gives us hype on games, and gives us forum info to discuss.

    More often than not, when it comes to top teams, it’s more or less accurate.

    there are exceptions obviously


    We all think similar when we see matchups, even if the number before the name wasnt present.

    Looks like Florida’s QB Felipe Franks may be out for the season with a leg injury. Bent over backwards going for it on a 4th down.

    My son and I joke around how we hate kickers. Kentucky fans don't see it as a joke this morning after a game-winning chip shot is missed with 55 seconds left.
    Florida again proved it doesn't belong in top 10.

    Yes,
    That didn't look good at all.
