    Pretty surprised with this but good to see the voters are taking notice of the game we played yesterday minus the miscues and horrible calls.

    LSU from #9 to #11 in Coaches Poll.

    But of you know they had to put USC above us...

    Sure there is. Alabama loses to Auburn & Florida. LSU wins out. USC wins out. Both play one another in a BCS bowl.

    USC lost by 27 to Oregon and Lost to Washington who LSU beat. How do you justify ranking them above LSU? Kind of a rhetorical question I know the answer.

    LSU >> USC. LSU has losses to undefeated #1 and #3. USC lost to unranked Washington and a 2 loss Oregon who lost to Standford. IMO, LSU > Ohio State and should be ranked about 8th.

    USC with a 7/2 record is ranked #10 (847 PTS) while LSU with a 7/2 record is ranked #11 (838 PTS). Fact of the matter is that’s almost a tie.

    If we feel bad about having USC ranked just above us, how do you think Oregon fans must feel being ranked #16 (665 PTS) with an identical 7/2 record having sounding beaten USC just last week? What matters most to voters is that both Oregon and LSU just lost while USC just won.

    It seems to me that human nature looks for “simple truths” and weighs the “now” over even the most “recent past” without having the time to do sound reasoning.

    A US Senator, with the help of a few cocktails, said, “I meet supporters of a bill who present the most compelling argument that a particular bill is a great bill and deserving of my vote. Next day, I meet with a different group who clearly demonstrate that the same bill is terrible and in no way deserving of my vote. Often, I think that how we vote in the senate is more a function of who we last talked to than anything else.”
