    .......Colley...Billingsley..Sagarin..A&H...Massey...Wolfe.....Avg
    Boise....5.........2............1.........3........3.....................2.67
    TCU.....3.........4............2..........4........2....................3.00
    LSU.....1..........1............8.........1.........8........N/A......3.67
    OU.......2.........5...........29.........2........9....................5.33
    Oregon.10........7............4........10........1....................7.33
    Bama...13........3...........17.........5........5....................7.67
    tOSU....8........6...........23........13........4....................9.00

    Drop the lowest and highest, and LSU averages out to a 2.67 computer poll ranking.

    The McNeese State game will hurt a lot, however. They are not a FBS school, so we get nicked a lot when it comes to computer poll computations. Some actually give you a SOS of however many losses the opponent has (i.e., if McNeese is 3-3, we get credit for 0-3 on our SOS).

    Billingsley and Massey are projected from last night's results. We will get the updates later today.

    Answered my own question - BSU and TCU generally in the Top 7. Ohio State, however, is no higher than 5, and 15 in Segarin and 16 in A&H.

    Ohio State fans are gonna love that.

    Here's what we need to know, big-picture:

    If LSU is 13-0 and obviously SEC Champs, here's what we'll need:

    WVU to be 9-3
    UNC to be 7-5

    Alabama, UF, Auburn and Arkansas to all be 8-4 or better. 2 of them should have 10 wins.

    Then, if Miss St gets to 6-6 or better (UT too), and then if we beat a 10-2 S Carolina team in the SECCG... our computer ranking should be #1.

    The computers will favor LSU over every other team in the running.

    Computers aren't blinded by unbridled media lovefest with the botoxed one at Bama.

    Still ranked above us after that ass kicking they took yesterday? Why because they beat an Ark team that choked itself?
