Auburn drops one spot in AP poll

Despite “winning” last night. Methinks poll voters took note of how they “won”. Who jumped over them? Aggies.

Once the gold standard (and still the most highly publicized and referenced poll if it’s type), the AP poll is becoming more and more irrelevant to those of us who really follow the sport passionately. The Auburn team I saw not only yesterday, but the week before is definitely NOT a top 10 team.

The reality is that the only reason it and the “coaches poll” get so much publicity today is because the CFP poll doesn’t come out until midway through the season. Once it is released, the other polls are TOTALLY irrelevant. Stupid, archaic ranking conventions like this one are the reason.
