Oklahoma State tumbles 10 spots in AP poll

While there was no change in the Top 5, the media did shake some things up outside of that rarefied air heading into Week 6 of the 2013 season.

Oklahoma State, which suffered a head-scratching loss in Morgantown to West Virginia Saturday afternoon, took the most significant plummet of the weekend, falling all the way down from No. 11 to No. 21.  LSU’s three-point road loss to Georgia, on the other hand, cost the Tigers just four spots, keeping them in the Top 10 at No. 10 while the Bulldogs climbed three into LSU’s old No. 6 hole.

As expected, Alabama (No. 1), Oregon (No. 2), Clemson (No. 3), Ohio State (No. 4) and Stanford (No. 5) all held serve and hold the same spots as a week ago.  Rounding out the Top Ten are Louisville and Florida State the same No. 7 and No. 8, respectively, that they were last Sunday, and No. 9 Texas A&M, up one to No. 9.

Oklahoma took one the biggest jumps up of those that were ranked last weekend, climbing three to No. 14 thanks to its win over then-No. 22 Notre Dame.  Not surprisingly, the Irish fell out of the Top 25 after the loss.  Idle Texas Tech moved up four to No. 20.

Arizona State, thanks to its job-killing win over USC, moved into the Top 25 at No. 22.  The Sun Devils were joined in the latest poll by new member Maryland, which makes its first AP appearance since November of 2008.

The only other team outside of the Irish to exit the AP poll was Wisconsin, which had been No. 23 prior to its loss to the Buckeyes.

    They should have fallen further. WVU stinks and dominated them.

    Whoever voted ND in the top 25 should lose their vote.

    The final year if the BCS us shaping up to be a good one. If only we had playoff this year. The funny thing is, the final BCS year might just prove we need an 8 team playoff. Best of luck to every team, and an awesome Sunday to everyone.

    How the hell can the SEC have three 1 loss teams in the top 10?? Such a damn joke.

  5. normtide says: Sep 29, 2013 3:16 PM

    Maybe you don’t watch college football? LSU and Georgia are great teams. If they played in the B1G, they would be NCG locks. These polls are voted on by people from around the nation. How can you claim bias? Are voters in Oregon biased to the SEC? Where would you rank them?

    @bigugly

    There has to be two backup SEC teams in the top ten at all times. Funny thing is Missouri is still undefeated and not in the top five. If I were a Mizzou fan I would write a very sternly written letter… With exclamation points!!!!

    Who should be ranked ahead of those teams? Who ranked below them would be favored to beat them?

    @normtide …

    Neither bigugly2005, skwackquackwoof, nor any of those dingaling thumbers watch college football or comprehend what they’re watching. They remind me of something a guy posted to me on PFT last week about the Steelers. He said a lifelong fan told him Todd Haley should be fired. But when he questioned the guy on why, he didn’t even know who Haley was or what he did. All he knew was that a lot of people are screaming for Haley’s head.

    All these dolts know is that other dolts say the deck is stacked for the SEC–or the traditional SEC. And they know their teams don’t play for the SEC. So obviously they’ve been wronged!

    They’re too dimwitted to watch games and figure out the high level of competition within the SEC–particularly the SEC West–compared with other conferences. They’re too dense to grasp that a narrow loss to Georgia by LSU is not the same as being clobbered by an unranked team. After all, the only real skill they have is pouting on the blogs. But you have to give it to them … they’re bloody good at that ;)

    And here we get the typical classy responses from SEC fans calling anybody outside of the SEC a dolt, or that they are too dense to appreciate the greatness of the SEC.

    Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. -MLK

    @huskerzfan …

    Bless your heart. I suppose it’s no surprise that the conscientiously stupid lack fundamental reading skills, and we must try to excuse the sincerely ignorant their inability to quote others correctly. My post said nothing about just “anybody outside of the SEC” and referred exclusively to “bigugly2005, skwackquackwoof” and “those dingaling thumbers” who agree with them. Dolts are as dolts behave, dear. But you do get points for having the ambition to quote Dr. King, if not the intellect to understand him.

  11. normtide says: Sep 29, 2013 10:24 PM

    I wonder if blind hate is covered by that quote? If so, you too should read it more often.

    Deb,
    Not only do I watch college football, unlike you, I also PLAYED college football. The myth of “high level of competition” within the SEC will be exposed with the implementation of the 4 team playoff system. The SEC hijacked the BCS years ago as evidenced by the 2012 BCS Championship game. Take your time Deb, come up with another snarky long winded retort.

  13. johngaltwho says: Sep 30, 2013 9:37 AM

    No way the Badgers should be ranked below Arizona State. Apologies dont erase incompetence and they certainly dont erase cheating. The HACK12 will have a very hard time finding non-conference partners in the future with their unique stance that only their officials can work the games.

    I think LSU should be ranked ahead of A&M.

    A&M lost at home to the #1 team and while the game was close, they were dominated for much of it.

    LSU lost a back and forth nailbiter on the road to the #6 team that came down to the last possession.

  15. normtide says: Sep 30, 2013 10:27 AM

    8to80- the best thing is, it will be settled on the field

    @bigugly2005 …

    Darlin’, it doesn’t take time or wind to respond to silliness. Thousands of men and boys–and some girls–play the game. It doesn’t make them experts on the competition level in the SEC in 2013. But thank you. It’s always entertaining when a guy tries to pretend his male parts give him extra insight a female fan couldn’t possibly have.

    I’d simply love to hear how the SEC hijacked the 2012 championship game. What could Mike Slive have said to persuade Notre Dame to suck so badly?
