Well, that seems mostly pretty okay, minus the complete and total ridiculousness of a world-historical ranking fraud, travesty and bad idea at number nine. But those die were cast earlier in the year.

Speaking of teams we hate, ND's bowl loss put them out of the poll and made our loss to them look worse. Thanks, Brian Kelly. You're swell.

Arkansas managed to have the quiestest possible 11-2 top 5 ranked season. I didn't see the Hogs play all year, but I don't think they belong up there given how bad they got trashed by Bama (38-14) and LSU (41-17). Their best wins are South Carolina and Kansas State.

Our friends the Georgia Bulldogs are damn well better than 20, too.
