    The SEC's #'s/ranking...

    1,2,3,4,6,7,13,14,25,47,48,67

    What struck me when I saw this was USCw at 48 (what if they weren't playing Ohio St. next year,) OU at 46, ND at 70.

    UT at 67 was interesting as well.

    it's a good story, thanks for posting

    But it's just a start, last years record isn't a automatic good record this year.

    LSU started last year with one of the toughest schedules in the country and ended in the top 40% or so, but not at the top (Ole Miss was pretty close to #1).

    If you take Rivals and SI as early pronostications on SOS, LSU was at 18. Sagarin has them finishing at 11th last year.

    I guess I stopped paying attention after the SEC CG. I stand corrected. At one point after Arkansas, we were somewhere far below 11, I believe.

    This says all I need to hear:


    2007 Record vs. Team Finishing in AP Top 15

    LSU 5-0
    Georgia 2-1
    Southern Cal 0-0
    Ohio State 0-1
    West Virginia 1-0
    Kansas 1-1
    Missouri 1-2
    Oklahoma 1-1


    Bama messed up our SOS with those loses we won't mention.

    You mean like that UL-M one?

    oops, we weren't supposed to mention that UL-M game. For the rest of this thread, I promise not to remind anyone that Bama lost to UL-M....in football.

    i'm glad you specified that bama lost to UL-M in football....i was beginning to think that their loss to UL-M occurred in some other sport but your mention of the bama loss to UL-M in football spurred my memory. thanks :thumb:

    Is it just UL-M we can't bring up? What if we write it as ULM? ULM is obviously different than UL-M, so maybe ULM is okay. Of course, there's always U-L-M, or UL at M....
